The float/sending unit inside your fuel tank has gone bad. It can be replaced, but will likely require dropping the fuel tank. The replacement itself is rather simple and straightforward, but removing and replacing the tank is messy, hazardous, and better left to a dealer or professional mechanic. You might consider using the odometer/trip meter to estimate your fuel usage.

Not getting gas to engine. Where do I find the fuel pump FUSE and/or RELAY??


Generally a FPR failure won't cause a non-start. Both your Fuel pump fuse and relay are under the package shelf, behind the front seats on the right hand side. The shelf has three screws that are kinda hard to see and some Velcro holding it down. Also thick your inertial switch. The white button should be up.

Could be the main or fuel run relay located in the compartment under the luggage rack, passenger side, main relay also, fuse for the fuel relay 8amp. Electronic Control Unit is also located there.

Could be electrical, Hook up a timing light, three leads: Power, Ground, and one that goes around the wire to #1 cyl. Turn the engine over and see if there's firing. Note: u can check all 4 spark plugs this way.

Fuse lead goes to pin 30 of the fuel relay, u can jump 30 across to 57 and check for the pumps running, if not, change-I suggest both relays, main and fuel run relays. Both pumps get their 12v DC from the fuel run relay, both should be running when you switch ignition switch to on, then a tachymetric signal is fed from the coil to the relay to keep it running.

There is a fine mesh screen sock on the pickup tube in the gas tank, replace that. It will collapse and starve the fuel pump, but not all the time.

92 spider reads 0 at oil pressure gauge but no light illuminated


buy a cheap manual oil pressure test gauge from a parts store, not the kind of guage you put under the dash but a tester, they come with different fittings for may app's, they are about $20, being sure of the pressure is worth that, if the pressure is ok then most likely the sending unit is defective.
