you will have several sending units.
1. Oil pressure sending unit, which according to peoples site that I have visited is right above the oil filter.
2.sending unit in gas tank going to gauges, which is in the gas tank.
3. temperature sending unit, which is located near the thermostat housing or near the end of the upper radiator hose.

My fuel gauge is not working, have a 70 Dodge Challenger, have replaced sending unit in tank, dash unit, voltage limiter and checked continuity between wires to gauge and sending unit, and made sure dash...

Only thing I can tell, with all you've checked, is the power to the gage isn't there. If the tank sending unit ground to frame is not connected, the gage will go past the full mark. No power to the gage it will stay at empty side. Power goes from fuse to gage, gage to sending unit and back to gage. Make sure the fuse is good on both sides of it. The gage just isn't getting power from the fuse.

2001 chevy 1500 5.3l 4x4 fuel guage not working. changed sending unit no change. grounded gauge in dash went to full not guage. not getting power to sending unit fuses/ wiring good

You won't get power at the sending unit. The sending unit provides a variable ground to the dash unit. Where did you ground the dash unit? If you disconnect the sending unit at the tank and ground the fuel gauge circuit there the gauge should go to full. If if doesn't the problem is between that connector and the place you cheched it before. If it does the problem is with the sender. Occasionally new parts are found to be defective.

Fuel guage dosent work is there got to be power to the sending unit

Yes, there needs to be power to the sending unit (usually located with the fuel pump in the fuel tank) for the sending unit to work. Check the fuel pump fuse and relay to be sure both are OK.

2005 express fuel gauge shows emrty all the time? how do i know if its the sending unit or just a bad gauge

you have to back track the wire from the sending unit to the guage. If there is no power when you put your volt meter to the wire and the body you should get movement. There could be a break in the wire, or it could be a bad guage or a sending unit. obviously the sending unit is the hardest to fix. So start with the wire, then the guage then the sending unit. If you do replace the sending unit. I personaly would replace the wire no matter what. One solid wire with a good heat and weather proof coating.

Oil pressure gauge keeps fluxuating. Think it is the sensor. Want to know where the sensor is located on my 1994 lincoln continental

The oil sending unit is located below the power steering pump. 
You can get to it by removing the alternator, then the three bolts around the power steering pump bracket. Remove the small pulley on the bracket and pull back on the power steering bracket. Look behind bracket and you will see the oil sending unit. 

Disconnect the wire from the oil sending unit. Use a deep socket (1 1/16) to remove unit. 

While you have unit remove, I would go ahead and use an oil pressure gauge to test the oil pump pressure. 

Good luck and hope this helps
