Question about 1988 Toyota Corolla 4 Door
What you probably have...is a worn out fuel gauge sending unit. It is not worth the trouble to fix this unless you can do it yourself, or have someone fix it for free ( a brother or relative) If it works at 1/4 of a tank, then that is all you really need so that you don't run out of gas. The sender is a coil of fine wire wrapped around a small fiber or plastic wafer. Then there is an electric contact that slides along this coil and the resistance changes in proportion to level of fuel in the tank. This allows a variable signal to be sent to your fuel gauge in the dash, that corresponds to the level of fuel in the tank. The contact, and the coil are both metal, which wear out after time. Sorry.
