SOURCE: 1987 ford Bronco II fuel gage doesn't work-reads empty all time

I need to know if the other gauges are accurate. There is a voltage regulator mounted on the back side of the dash that can go bad and often does, that will make the other gauges inaccurate also.

SOURCE: fuel pump works fine. pickup tube is clear. no fuel to engine.

OK...nearly forgot about mechanical pumps!!! The fuel line is a suction line, making splits & holes difficult to find after the thing dies. BUT, If you disconnect the fuel line at the carb and attach a siphon hose to it while siphoning some fuel from a quart container, the fuel line is now carrying fuel TO the tank, with slight pressure. It will then leak wherever a hole is. Then you can just replace section with rubber line.(unless the leak is on top of the tank) It's really rare that the pickup tube will fall off or rot away. Usually the tank will go away long before that ever happens.
If it comes down to removing the tank, you can easily lower it by filling a tire tube up and putting them under the tank (on a jeep sometimes two) and after removing the straps, just let the air out of them. Once the tank is down I'm sure you can find a way to get the fuel out!

I would wire up a relay between the battery and the choke solenoid. Fuse the choke separately in the engine compartment. You could run the relay coil off the same washer wire as before, but this way the washer fuse wouldn't have to source current to the choke. 25315115-wng3opgl1pug32fsc4t4fc4i-3-0.jpg

Check the lead wire coming from the sending unit in the tank to the fuel gauge. Sounds like a bare wire grounding out on the frame or against the body. The only other possibility I can think of would be a defective sending unit if you used the old unit instead of replacing it before reinstalling the tank.

Well it's temping to put in biggfer fuses as the problem gets worse but the size of the fuses are to keep you from burning things up so you've from your probem with a 30 amp smoke test. The raditor fan wire is melted somewhere in the wire harnes to the wire for the trck lock or even key on circirts. the likly place to look is inside the stering collum. It takes the skills of removing the steering whel and the lcok plate and even then thats does'nt have to be where the problem is. You need to look under the dash after you remove the covers and use you nose to smeel for the burnt wiring and open up any thing the smells like it's been hot and anything the appers melted together. once a harness is found melted you need to seragete all the wires in the loom but don't cut the wires justy seaparte them. once you think you've got then all pulled apart so no bear wires touch each other or any meal parts put in the correct size fuses and see if you can connect the battery with out a spark. if you can you may then start checking to see what works and what does'nt.. This all sounds like too much work or too hard to do then you'll need to pay someone theat knows alot about car wiring problems to do it for you. I'll been doing this kind of work for the last 20 years and a'm alawys finding new things that are fried and burnt up. We all charge by the hour to do this work so the most experieced mechanic that works on cars like yours will probly find and fix the problem the fastest. therefore they may charge more per hour but their likly to get it right quicker and it'll stay fixed after they fix it.. This is the most likly kind of work to go sour after it's fixed cause they might miss a circuit that you use and they did'nt try. and as soon as it burns again it's back to the drawing board and if big fuses are use the fire can take the whole car.

Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.

1991 Jeep Fuel Control Issue


Hey Mudkicker,

Who ever thought of putting an electric fuel pump inside a tank of gas........

Check your other gauges for accuracy. They do that when a ground is loose.

Check the wiring from the fuel tank along the longitudinal frame for frays and shorts. Plugs are secured.

Under the hood, passenger side, check the fuel pump relay. Switch it with one of the others to test it.

Bring the vehicle to an auto parts store. Ask them to break out he code reader. Check for diag codes

Comment me back
Mike.

Ran out of gas now will not start


There should be a fuse for the fuel pump check this first. If fuse is good you will probably need a pump. The fuel pump is cooled by being in the fuel. When ran low or out of fuel the pump gets hot and will blow a fuse or overheat and quit.
