You have to drop the fuel tank out from under the car, then remove the fuel pump. The arm and float are attached to this. Call your local parts store, because alot of pumps and fuel sending units are made together, so you can't replace one and not both. Hope this helps :)

My 2005 mercury mountaineer fuel gauge rstays on empty but it's full


Likely need a new level in the tank. There is a float in there that may be stuck or corroded to the point that the signal isn't getting g to the gauge. It's also possible the gauge in the dash is bad. I would go with the level sensor in the tank first.

Fuel Gauge wont move past 3/4 tank even with full tank


There is no easy fix.
Either the gauge on the dash is faulty, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit uses a float which may be getting stuck at the 3/4 mark.

Fuel gage stuck on full


Either there is a short in the fuel sender wiring or the sender in the tank is bad.The actual gauge is rarely bad.Good luck.


Else
The float affixed to your fuel pump in your gas tank is stuck.

It tells the dash you ALWAYS have a full tank.
You have to drop the tank, PB Blast/WD40 the float, get it to drop down.
Finally
Your unit in the tank is bad. Pull it out and move it up and down while someone looks at the gauge. If doesn't work, buy a new one. They are not that expensive.

Fuel gage stuck at half full


Hi,
Check both the gas float and the fuel gauge. The terminal wire on the fuel float when grounded on the bare metal body of your car it will register on your gauge as "FULL ", if not the fuel gauge is malfunctioning and have to replace. When it register to your gauge as "FULL", the problem would be the gas float inside the fuel tank.
A technician could replace it for you.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for asking FixYa!

Gas gauge reads half full when less gas in tank. Also speedometer heads 80 ot sometimes higher when driving slower.


sounds like you have a bad ground in your dash where your gauges are located should come out as cluster check for loose wire!

I have an 89 camaro rs and the feul gauge is stuck on full. is it the sending unit or something else


Most likely it would be the tank sender unit,but it could also be the dash gauge and or possible wiring. When u turn off the key , does the gauge go to a different position ? If so, then probably the tank sender, if not then the dash gage.
