Usually the sender units wire is loose or the send is faulty
you can check the sender by removing it or you can check the guage from the sender end by varying the voltage
i just use torch batteries 1 the 2 then 3 in series just like inside the torch!
If guage shows different levels 1/4 or 1/2 etc.then its the ender unit thats faulty

96 Mercury cougar gas gauge won't work

Cathy, 1996 Mercury cougar gas gauge not working. Simplest thing to check first is your fuel gage fuse, make sure all fuses are good. The ground wire could be corroded/damaged, sending unit in tank faulty, fuel level gauge in cluster faulty. All things can be tested by a good Tech.,diagnosed and estimate for repair.

I had same problem with a 90 f250. I unplugged the rear pump. An straight wired the switch. Gas gos bad to fast for me to use 2 tanks. An I filled it w water and antifreeze after cutting the line for extra weight. And Put a locking cap on
far as cleaning the tank. I always drop tha tank, pull the pump off, and clean with a rag and new gas.
Use a tester an make shire u have power to Gage part of pump connectn. No power its a fuse or ground issue. If u have power, bad sending unit.

The 1990 XJ6 has been sitting for the last 2 years and now won't start. The engine turns over fine. The dash gages don't seem to operate. I filled the gas tank with 5 gallons of premium gas. HELP!!!

I wish I could give you an instant fix, but I can't. Do you have spark? If so then its either your fuel pump or the CPS, crank position sensor. If no spark then it could be your coil.

Dual tank only runs on one tank

there is an electric valve that switches from one tank to the other. it switches the gauge too. It is malfunctioning and pumping fuel from one tank to the other instead of the engine. I think there wa a recall for this. Call any Ford dealer and give him your 17 digit VIN # and they can check for open recalls. Recalls never expire and the dealer will repair for free if there is a recall.
good luck
