Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab

1 Answer

I have a F150 and I replace the fuel pump, Sending

I have a 1992 F150, 5.0L and I replace the fuel pump, Sending Unit and the float... I had to cut off the factory connector and splice the connector that came with the Spectra assembly... I removed one lead at time and connected it before I cut another.... however, it is obvious that something is wired wrong because the pump dose not work and the fuel gauge is always show ing full.

What is the best way to correct this.... PLZ

2007 grand prix replaced fuel pump assy now fuel gauge reads full only


If you replaced the fuel pump then one of two things probably happened. Recheck the electrical connection on the sending unit or your sending unit was damaged when you replaced the fuel pump. The sending unit is the float/arm device (like a toilet) that sends a resistive signal to your fuel gage. Depending on the vehicle, some failed sending units read full when bad and some read empty when bad. Did you bend the arm of the sending unit when you removed the fuel pump? Did the float happen to stick in a particular spot? The easiest thing is to check your connections at the tank. Most vehicles have two electrical connectors. One for the fuel pump and one for the sending unit. If you are satisfied that the connectors are fine then I would recommend dropping the tank again and inspecting your sending unit. It is virtually impossible to connect the sending unit to the fuel pump cable and vs. versa. Some vehicles have only one electrical connector for both. Sorry but that is the best answer than I can give you.

1996 ford f150 front gas tank gauge reads empty but tank is full pump in front tank was replaced about a year ago what could problem be


When pump was replaced, did you also replace sending unit? It is usually a good idea to replace sending unit when replacing pump. The sending unit also "sends" information about the fuel level to your fuel gage. It is also possible the float on the sending unit is stuck in the low fuel or empty position on the sending unit. Although on some vehicles you can replace individual parts of the fuel delivery system, it is usually a good idea to replace all the internal parts of the sending unit assembly at the same time. After all, most fuel tanks can be a real pain to gain access to the inner workings of the fuel delivery system, so why take the chance of having to gain access again.
Good luck.

Fuel gauge quit working. stuck on half a tank. is there a fuse for just the gauge? do fuel tanks even have floats in them anymore?vor do i just need a new gauge?


the fuel level sending unit has been incorporated into the fuel pump assembly.
the fuel pump is most likely your problem, these pumps dont like fuel additives so be careful.
most common problem with these fuel gauges is the sending unit, the sender contacts will errode over time fuel additives seem to speed the process.

replace the fuel pump assembly

hope this helps
