Question about 1984 Ford Ranger
Rear fuel tank shows empty on dashboard fuel guage..back tank has fuel i it but guage shows empty on dashboard.front tank guage is working okay.
The float (sending unit) on the low pressure pump in the tank is stuck.
It is an integral part of the pump - so replacement is necessary to fix.
Often times you can get it temporarily freed up with a few blows to the tank or top of the tank with a deadblow hammer.
Most customers choose to deal with the bad float rather than pony up the $350+ to repair.
If you are thinking of repairing yourself... the tank must be dropped - and the pump replaced.
The pump is $45.00 at any parts store.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
