You will need to drop the fuel tank because the fuel pump is inside the tank.

1996 ford f150 front gas tank gauge reads empty but tank is full pump in front tank was replaced about a year ago what could problem be


When pump was replaced, did you also replace sending unit? It is usually a good idea to replace sending unit when replacing pump. The sending unit also "sends" information about the fuel level to your fuel gage. It is also possible the float on the sending unit is stuck in the low fuel or empty position on the sending unit. Although on some vehicles you can replace individual parts of the fuel delivery system, it is usually a good idea to replace all the internal parts of the sending unit assembly at the same time. After all, most fuel tanks can be a real pain to gain access to the inner workings of the fuel delivery system, so why take the chance of having to gain access again.
Good luck.

Is there a fuel relay that could be going bad


The problem is caused by a defective fuel level sending unit inside the gas tank, it is very common and caused by the chemicals in the new cleaner burning motor vehicle fuels eating up the insulator on the sending unit. To replace the sending unit requires the fuel tank be removed, the sending unit is part of the fuel pump module and all are replaced as one unit.

How to replace fuel sending unit


The sending unit is on the top of the fuel tank. You have to drop the tank from the car. The fuel sending unit is in a connector that the fuel pump is on. This will have a retaining ring that you have to remove to get to the sending unit. Once you remove the ring then the fuel pump, sending unit will come out.

Dealer replaced fuel pump and fuel sending unit in 2006 Volvo S60


There was no need for them to replace the fuel pump unless it was in one assembly with the fuel pick-up & fuel gauge sending unit. I sounds like they installed a factory defective replacement pump or did a defective installation job. Have them put a different new fuel pump to see if the one they put in was a factory dud.

01 Chev Silverado 4.8L fuel light comes on when fuel tank is full


The fuel gauge sending unit which sends a signal to the gauge is stuck or defective. It’s in the fuel tank.

Buy 2 containers of Chevron Techron at Wal-Mart and add to the fuel tank. Sulfur deposits build up on the sending unit. I own a Corvette and many of us owners have had to add the Techron to cure the fuel gauge problem.

If that doesn’t take care of it, more than likely the fuel level sending unit has gone bad, it is inside the tank and is a variable resistor connected to a float. Chevy and GMC trucks in the 99-2003 era have had a bad problem with this. The sending unit can be replaced apart from the pump but this is not a job for a beginner.

It’s best to replace pump and sending unit at the same time. If you only replace sending unit, pump will usually fail soon after that creating extra expense
