It could be a missing or blown fuse, open circuit in the wiring, or the sending unit

Is it at all possible to reset the distance to empty reading on the dash? 2000 linciln towncar cartier


Distance to empty is based on the average fuel economy for the last 500 miles driven. You can reset this by unplugging the battery to set it to default but that is the best you can do.

Fuel guage always reads full outside temp guage inacurate also miles to empty not correct


Hi Jim, the problem is that the fuel gauge sending unit is the part of the fuel pump and it is a costly repair.

The electronic gas guage is dropping fast a trip of 5 miles used half a tank of gas but no gas smell


I would check the fuel sending unit.If it's too expensive zero the odometer reading unit each time you fill up. Refill after a reasonable amount of mileage

I did a tune up on my 2000 town car 3 weeks ago.


maybe the plug wires...did you mess with the timing?  Is the ox sensor wires connected?  Is a check engine light on?  Are you now running the a/c?

Fuel gauge not working all the time.


This is a normal concern.
The instrument cluster uses 4 different operating modes to calculate the fuel level:
Anti-slosh (default mode)
Key OFF fueling
Key ON fueling
Recovery
After a fuel fill up, the time for the fuel gauge to move from empty (E) to full (F) ranges from 2 seconds to 55 minutes depending on which operating mode the fuel gauge is in.
The default fuel gauge mode is called the anti-slosh mode. To prevent fuel gauge changes from fuel slosh (gauge instability due to changes in fuel sender readings caused by fuel moving around in the tank), the fuel gauge takes approximately 55 minutes to go from empty (E) to full (F).
The key OFF fueling mode (2 seconds to read empty [E] to full [F]) requires 3 conditions be met:
The key must be in the OFF position throughout the entire refueling of the vehicle.
At least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity must be added to the fuel tank.
The instrument cluster must receive a valid key ON fuel sender reading within 1 second of the key being put into the RUN position. The key ON sample readings are considered valid if the fuel sender reading is between 15 ohms ± 2 ohms and 160 ohms ± 4 ohms.
If these conditions are not met, the fuel gauge stays in the anti-slosh mode, which results in a slow to read full (F) event.
The key ON fueling mode (approximately 90 seconds to read empty [E] to full [F]) requires 3 conditions be met:
The transmission is in PARK (P).
The key is in the RUN position.
At least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity must be added to the fuel tank.
In key ON fueling mode, a 30-second timer activates after the transmission is put into the PARK (P) position (automatic transmissions). When the 30-second time has elapsed and at least 15% of the vehicle's fuel capacity has been added, the fuel gauge response time is 90 seconds to read from empty (E) to full (F). When the transmission is shifted out of PARK (P), the fuel gauge strategy reverts to the anti-slosh mode. The key on refueling mode prevents slow to read full events from happening if the customer refuels the vehicle with the key in the RUN position.
Recovery mode is incorporated into the instrument cluster strategy to recover from a missing fuel level input during a refueling event. Missing fuel level inputs result from intermittent opens in the fuel sender or its circuits. Recovery mode (empty [E] to full [F] approximately 20 minutes) is initiated when the following 2 conditions are met:
The instrument cluster is in the anti-slosh (default) mode.
The actual fuel level in the tank is greater than what is being displayed by the fuel gauge

I was told a a 2000 lincoln town car (8 cyl) has no spark plugs.


replace the spark plugs, replace the air filter if dirty or has more than 30,000 miles, replace the fuel filter if more than 30,000 miles. clean the PCV system and valve.

I have the same exact problem. The numbers are fluctuating and unreliable. I refill the tank based upon my estimated.
