Question about 2005 Ford Taurus

Open Question

Fuel Comp Error 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?

    There is a fuel module in the circuit between the sender and the gauge..It should be under the dash on the driver side..I havent heard a anti-slosh module,,but thats more then likely the same one im talking about..If you find it lightly tap on it and see if it makes a difference..

SOURCE: 1966 Ford Mustang Gas Guage not working

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.

SOURCE: Help replacing fuel pump and sending unit 79 Ford Fairmont

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.

I have a 2015ford Taurus. the gas gauge and miles to empty moves on its own. I filled it up this morning and 30 minutes later it only had 3/4 tank and the miles to empty had fallen.


The sending unit on the fuel pump is bad. It sends a signal to the gage to tell the fuel level. The reason the mileage is moving is because the sending unit is miss reading the fuel level. The sending unit for the fuel level is in the fuel tank.

I recently had a fuel level error on my 2005 Ford Taurus along with the check engine light coming on. Any idea what I can do to fix it?


The gasoline tank should be lowered and the sending unit and gauge should be replaced. The fuel pump is probably ok.

You are going to have to replace the fuel guage sending unit in the fuel tank, nothing else will cause this problem that this 20 year Ford dealer tech has seen.

Fuel gauge


there is a sending unit in the tank this has probably clogged or wore out it has a filter on it, with gas debries this will make your guages stop working correctly

replace sending unit by dropping tank with gas out of tank and then pull out sending unit replace with new one
