Sounds like the sending unit is going out. I believe it's in the fuel tank with the pump assembly.

'04 Explorer xlt ...my fuel guage & check engine light stay on & my fuel guage shows empty on a full tank. two mechanics ran diagnostics and nothing registers as 'wrong'


You have a check light on--you have codes

Fuel gauge is not accurate

Need a different shop that has a data base,
so they can use reference material for your
vehicle & resolve

Did you go for a road test with the mechanic &
did they have a scanner hooked to the DLC
under the dash,if not you wasted your time with
them

Fuel gauge drops to no fuel


As cars drive they use up the fuel. Then the gauge drops to no fuel.
When you put more fuel in it goes up again - doesnt it?

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.

probably you got a problem with your fuel gauge sender that goes inside in the fuel tank, that sender is only a coil that works together with a fuel lever,if you want to save some money buy it separate from the fuel pump.
