I have been having issues with my gas gauge for about 3 weeks...at first I would fill up the tank or at least think it was full as the gauge would move all the way over to full then after I would stop pumping and turn on the car the gauge would go down to 3/4 tank and fluctuate back and forth between 3/4 and full over several days. Then yesterday I went and filled up and decided to not use the gauge as a measuring system and instead just let the pump go until it clicked off as it does when tank is full so I did this and the gauge went up to full then bounced back to empty and now my fuel low light is on and I cannot get any range reading on mileage for gas or anything. Also it should be noted that about that same 3 weeks ago my speedometer stopped working briefly starting off at 65 mph at rest then it gradually made its way back down to zero at rest and has since seemed to be ok.

This is regarding my 2005 Isuzu Ascender. While driving on highway I78 in NJ sudden noticed that speedometer gauge jumped to 120 mph but the speed on my portable navigation was showing only 68 mph. After that speedometer gauge shows 70, 80, 90 mph or so when vehicle is only at 20, 30 or 40 mph. Now is passed 120 mph and not coming back to normal. This seems to be a faulty speedometer. I have never seen any speedometer this way. This is the first time ever facing this issue. Now I have no idea at what speed I am going on.

Speedometer failed. Driving around 30 mph when the gauge jumped to the end of the meter and dived back down quickly. Gauge will intermittently work but only for short time frames but then will be off by 20 to 70 mph and jump at erratic moments. Issue happened around 95K.
