Question about 2005 Ford Taurus
I have replaced the fuel sending unit in the gas tank. Looking at the gas gauge, it seems to try and read fuel if you disconnect the battery cable and reconnect. Could it be the Power Control Module or the Anti-Slosh Module?

I had a similar problem. In my 1966 Mustang gas tank, the fuel pick-up was on a "float." My float developed a hole, filled with gasoline, and sank to the bottom of the tank, therefore, the gauge always read empty, but the car ran well. All the other gauges of course worked correctly. The repair was a relatively simple soldering job (after removing the float from the tank), but if that is indeed the problem, ensure all the gasoline is drained from the float before beginning the soldering job.

From what I understand even a "qualified" Ford mechanic has problems locating this and if you look at a pre-2000 Haynes or Chilton manual it shows it being in a completely different location but to answer your question from what I understand (never changed one myself) it's on the passenger side, under the dash and should be by the radio. Should be held on by one or two screws. Also easy to get to if the radio is removed.

you should have two metal bands/strapes hold the tank in place, a bolt on each end of the strapes. disconnect the fill neck, supply and return lines, the wires for the pump and sending unit. if possible get the fuel level as low as you can. gas is heavy. lift the car up as far as you can, i say 2 and a half to 3 feet off the ground. a car lift is even better. the fuel pump will be held in place with a ring, use a hammer and punch to drive the ring counterclockwise to remove. don't let any dirt go into the tank.

It sounds like a problem with the fuel gauge sender unit in the fuel tank which has worn out and gone open circuit and needs replacing. Access to the unit is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring connector and any hoses and then remove the securing screws. Replacement is done by reversing procedure.
