Question about 2009 Ford Escape XLS
The gauge shows 1/2 to 3/4 most of the time but sometimes drops to empty and fuel warning light comes on. Replaced sender unit with OEM unit and problem still exists. Could it be a fuel pump issues?

SOURCE: fuel level gauge
some of this vehicles have a computer system, that will allow you to diagnose the fuel gage with an aftermarket sacan tool,
than most of auto repairs have, but i will recomend you to check also the conector by the fuel pump and make sure there is not any corosion or melting circuit inside the conector,
what the scan tool does is triger your gage and that way you will know if you have a bad gage.

Make sure the oil level is correct. If the engine bearings are getting worn, the oil pump is worn or it's screen plugged, that can cause low-RPM weak oil pressure. Try running with 'high mileage' oil at your next oil change and always replace the filter. At some point, you may need to consider overhauling or replacing the engine. Good luck!

Is this a flex fuel vehicle. If so, call the dealership and ask the parts dept. if there is a gauge module (perhaps behind the instrument cluster). This may be the culprit and needs to be replaced.
