    So how do you get a new sending unit in there? and how much do they run? my jeep has the same problem. Also if anyone knows how to fix the rear latch so you can open it that is broken as well. I need to open to fix and to get to my tail lights to replace them. If any one can help please do so soon.

There is a sending unit in the fuel tank that registers how much fuel there is. It is probably broken, giving you a funny reading on your gauge.

Could be the sending unit in the tank or the gauge on the dash.
A mechanic would test each component by disconnecting the harness at the tank.

When my fuel tank is full the guage registers empty


Could be a problem with the gauge in the instrument cluster, or the wiring that goes back to the tank, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit has a float much like your toilet which could stick or fail to move.

FUEL TANK IS HALF FULL BUT READ OUT SHOWING TANK EMPTY? fuel gauge shows half tank one minute than bam down to almost empty, then back to half. Mechanic told me that it's the fuel evaporative control...


their is a plunger in your tank just like the plunger or float in your toilet, if your car wont pass smog then yes check with your mech you might need a new evaporative canister or maybe a line in/out is pluged if your tank still wont register correctly my first comment would be in order to replace
