SOURCE: Fuel level sensor in tank bad????

Yes it is all one unit, and yes that is what the problem is. don't use aftermarket parts, use OEM, (Delco Remy) they are much better quality.

SOURCE: 68 camaro aftermarket fuel gauge pegged passed full

Jess, Make sure you don't have the ground and sender level circuits crossed at the gauge. If the needle is pegs to full it indicates an open circuit, if the needle pegs to empty it is indicating a short to ground.
Let me know.
Regards,

my friend most of the latest car come's across such problem so it's not the ground wiring problem it's the problem with the fuel gauge unit fitted inside the fuel tank it's time to get replaced it one thing is for sure that part is costly b'cause the fuel gauge is combination of  2 part's the fuel supply pumping motor unit & fuel level indicating gauge unit for such problem see for your nearest FORD authorised service centre across near by so till then drive safe have happy motoring so see you soon my friend..... !

SOURCE: 2000 Chevy Venture shows gas gauge as always full..

if the remote works but the switches inside the van doesn't then the most likely fix would be the switch, tthough it is strange that both would quit. the place too start would be pop out the switch with a small screwdriver and disconnect the connector. the top left pin and the top middle pin is the unlock circuit in the switch. check continuity with your multimeter while pressing unlock. if no continuity, then get a small piece of wire and jump those pins in the connector,( the top right and center ) you should hear the doors unlock, then you know for a fact that the switch is bad. the unlock is used more than the lock so it is a more common failure. you can also use a continuity test on the rear wiper switch. though it is more common that the motor would stick from not being used. hope this helps if you have any more questions i am glad to help... dustang

I have a 1986 Ford F-250 with duel tanks and I don't recall what the capacity is or how many gals will each tank hold ?


Most of the standard Ford and Chevy tanks the 1980-1990 for pickups was 20 gals with long necked fills - so you could fit 21 gallons per side.

Fuel gauge registers full when filled with gas....drive 20mi and then drops to zero...still gas in the tank


The sender unit in the tank is the most likely cause. To test the panel unit, remove the wire from the fuel tank unit and gound it. The panel gauge needle should move up full scale to hot. Remove the wire from the ground and the gauge should return to empty. If this test is ok, the tank unit needs to be replaced.

I have a1987 F-150. The gas gauge for the rear tank always indicate that the tank is full when I know it is not. I try to put gas in but the tank won't let any gas in. Is there some type of sensors inside the tank that won't allow the tank to be filled or is this a guage problem?

Car will not start at times. Although, once it is


yes you can do it all if your inclined. yes its possible you got good avise. When you drop the tank be sure you do it when the fuel is as empty as possible or its awkward and heavy. Also disconnect the battery when you do the starter so as not to short out anything

Fuel Gauge not working


The switch that you use to change tanks is probably faulty - the switch supplies power for the sending unit in the tank, and to the transfer switch for the gas lines - use a meter to check it
