Question about 1998 Ford Escort
When i drive my van a 98 r reg escort 55 1.8d the fuel gauge moves to empty even though i have just filled it up, when dont accelerate it moves back towards full but cant decide where it wants to be, it wont work as normal...
Yes the sending unit is defective, to replace it remove the back seat cushion, under it u will find a sheet metal plate, remove this plate and u will find the access plate on the top of the fuel tank, undo the retaining ring with a brass drift or wood mallet (don't use anything with iron or steel u may cause a fire), remove the sending unit/fuel pump module and reverse to reinstall. Be careful to not break the fuel module connector on the top of tank, also make sure you have less than 1/2 tank of gas or it will spill all over when u remove the sender.
