Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
I have a 2000 Ford Windstar.The tank is full to the top. When you start the van the gas gauge initializes from the needle being bottomed out to coming up to just below the empty. The fuel light is on also. It does not move at all when the van is running, but so as you turn it off the needle goes back down at the bottom.
This sounds like the sender unit in the fuel tank is worn or possibly a corroded/ bad earth from the unit itself.
There should be an inspection plate above the fuel tank removal of this should reveal the sender unit and connections, if not can you see on top of it? make sure all connections are clean and not gunged up with corrosion. Try spraying Wd40 or similar around the area whilst wiggling the plugs/wires.
Good Luck, Please press the Blue Button to appraise my FREE! Effort.
