It is inside the fuel tank. To replace it you will need to remove the tank. It isn't that difficult with a couple of people and an empty tank.

I HAVE A 1999 PONTIAC GRAM AM WHEN I START THE THE CAR THE FUEL HAQND GOES TO FULL THEN DROPS TO EMPTY AN STAYS THERE AN I NO FUEL IS IN IT


It has to be the sender unit in the tank, or the gauge in the dash, or the wiring between them. In most cases, it is the sending unit-they are quite fragile often. Usually best to replace them (not very expensive-just difficult to get to.) The sending unit will be located with the fuel pump inside the tank. They are removed as one single unit.
There is a way to test if the dash gauge itself is working properly. You have to find the wire going into the fuel tank that is from the gauge, then with key on, ground that wire to the frame-you can use a jumper wire into the fuel tank electrical connector. When the wire is grounded, the gauge will definitely move to one place (either half full, or full-but it moves and stays there). If you see that, you know the sending unit in the gas tank is bad. Do not ground that wire for more than a couple of seconds, it is lo0w voltage, but it may cause a shorting problem.

How do I fix my gas gauge in my 1989 ford crown Victoria ltd?


Nine times out of ten, it is the sending unit in the tank that is the problem. To check, use a sort jumper wire to ground the gas gauge wire to the frame while watching the gauge needle on the dash, with the key in on position.

Find the gas tank electrical connector by the tank. Pull it apart, and on the harness side of the connector, locate the wire going to the sending unit. I don't know what color it is, but the fuel pump wire is a pink wire with black stripe and there is a black wire for the ground. The other wire should be for the dash gauge's sending unit. Have a helper turn the key to on and watch the gas gauge for any perceptible movement while you use the jumper wire, insert one end into the terminal for the gauge's sending unit wire (this is on the harness side of the connector, not the gas tank side), and touch the other end to the car frame-you are grounding it. If the dash gauge is good, the needle should move a lot, usually will move more than half way, one way or the other. So if it does, you know the dash gauge is good, and the problem is in the sending unit.

If it is the sending unit, it is quite a job to drop the tank, pull it out from under the car, then pull the fuel pump and sending unit out. You might be fighting a lot of rust on an '89-get some penetrating oil. And look for the removal procedure in a repair manual. It's not terribly difficult if you are handy with tools...and like to get dirty. Those hoses on the tank have been stuck on there a long time. Good luck.

It shows full or empty


Sounds like you may have a problem with your fuel level sending unit for your gas gauge, this will be a more difficult task to perform if your the at home mechanic because if the sending unit needs to be replaced your gas tank has to come out of the car, this part is located inside your gas tank, a twin post garage lift would make this job alot more easier especially if you never performed a job like this before....
