Hi gumy

sound like a sticking float in your gas tank,this small float is what registers how much gas is in the tank

I just got a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4, 4.0, std tran. The oil gauge doesn't work (engine runs fine) Previous owner said something about the ground for the instrument cluster (?) Also the gas gauge is off...


You should invest the $25 in a repair manual from the auto parts store. It has wiring schematics in the back of the book. Get yourself a decent digital volt ohm meter and start tracing the wires for your oil gauge, or you could try changing out the oil sending unit on the motor. It may be bad and they're not that expensive. As for the gas gauge, it sounds like you have a sticking float in the tank. As far as I know they do not sell the float and the fuel pump separate from each other. I would just watch the miles per tank of gas on the trip meter, unless you absolutely have to have a gas gauge then it's time to change the whole pump assembly.

2004 Ford Explorer XLT.....The radio and gas gauge quit


The check engine light will represent fault codes that the computer is sensing. Have a mechanic, or go to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan for the fault codes. This will at least give you an idea about some of your problems.

Temp gauge pegs left and a/c when runs overheats engine


Why do you need to know where the temp sensor is. It sounds like it is working properly. Check for thermostat not opening completely, or a clogged radiator.

1990 ranger gas gauge quit working. please help


I would check the ground wires and fuses. There could be a hairline crack which you can only see by a magnify glass. This hairline crack is enough to kill your gauge. Unfortunately you will have to pull the dash out to get to the cluster of gauges
