Question about Ford F-350 Super Duty

1 Answer

Here we go.....I have a 99 Ford Super Duty DRW w/7.3 and about 3 years ago my fuel gauge stopped working (reads full) after backing over a curb I noticed that after that it reads full all the time. I was going to drop the tank to see if it maybe the sender. I did unplug the connector at the tank just to see if it may have changed but the gauge still was reading full. I was going to check for a bad ground. I just moved so I haven't had the time to continue working on it yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Just changed fuel pump on 2005 f250 4x4 and fuel gauge moves up tom 1/8 tank and reads low fuel on full tank, why is my fuel gauge not working correctly


The fuel sending unit rod was bent during the instalation giving you the false readings. This is the thin metal rod that attaches the float to the sender.

ATT.NET7.3 POWERSTROKE WONT IDLE 99 MODEL


According to my Haynes Diesel Engine Repair manual this is a list of possible causes.
1.Slow idle incorrectly adjusted
2.Fast idle is inoperative
3.Restricted fuel return system
4.Glow plugs turn off too soon
5.Insufficient fuel suuply to injector pump
6.Injector pump malfunction
7.Incorrect, contaminated or poor quality fuel
8.Air in fuel.
The manual is part number 10330 anywhere they sell Haynes manuals ($20). It has a very good section on the 7.3 especially if you don't want to spend money at a diesel shop every time it needs work. Hope this helps.

The gas gauge on my Ford 2006 F350 V10 28,000 miles is giving me false reading on my gas gauge. The low fuel continuously goes on no matter how much gas is in the tank. What could be the problem.?


The Fuel level FLOAT, in the tank is defective. Possible that it "holed", and has sunk to the bottom of the tank.
To check, separate the harness plug to the Tank sender unit, and ground the supply to a suitable place on the frame. The dash gauge should record "Full", therefore the sender unit is suspect.
regards. DT

Pull your sensor from your tank and clean it. It could have some build up on it causing it to stick
