Question about Cars & Trucks
My gas gauge is always marking overfill and in internet it says that is the fuel gauge sending unit, I want to know how do I change it.
Unfortunately it is inside of the fuel tank. You have to unhook and remove the tank to get to it.

I had a similar problem. In my 1966 Mustang gas tank, the fuel pick-up was on a "float." My float developed a hole, filled with gasoline, and sank to the bottom of the tank, therefore, the gauge always read empty, but the car ran well. All the other gauges of course worked correctly. The repair was a relatively simple soldering job (after removing the float from the tank), but if that is indeed the problem, ensure all the gasoline is drained from the float before beginning the soldering job.

if you replaced the tank and all i assume you didnt change the fuel pump. if you dint then all thats wrong is that the float on the fuel pump is gas logged and will move more than if you had put in a new pump thus the fluctuation in the guage.
