How do I replace the fuel sending unit in a '69


The sending unit is in the tank, sometimes in sits on the side or the rear and can be replaced without dropping the gas tank. in some cases the tank must be dropped to replace the sending unit,

Look at the tank and see if it can be removed with or without removing the tank.

the sending unit sit in tank and is held in with a lock ring.

How do i replace the fuel level sensor on a 2005 kia sorento


What You'll Need:
  • flat head screwdriver
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • hammer
  • open end wrenches
  • replacement fuel tank sending unit
    Before you begin, disconnect the negative battery cable to be sure no electrical sparks are possible. You're dealing with gas which is highly flammable!Your fuel tank sending unit is located in the top of the fuel tank, but is accessible under your back seat (or under the carpet in your trunk) on some models. The sending unit will be protected by an access cover, usually held on with a couple of screws. Lift your back seat or trunk carpet and locate the access cover for your fuel tank sending unit. Remove the screws holding the cover in place and remove the access cover to reveal the fuel tank sending unit.
    Safety Note: Gasoline is highly flammable. By removing the fuel tank sending unit, you are opening the gas tank. Be sure there are no sources of spark or flame nearby.
    With the access cover removed, you'll see the fuel tank sending unit right there on top. It will have a wiring harness plugged into the top (this tells your gas gauge how much fuel is in the tank). Unplug the wiring harness and move it safely to the side. If your fuel tank sending unit is screwed or bolted in place, remove the screws or bolts. Some sending units are a "twist-lock" type. They work like the old twist-lock gas caps. You'll see a few notches along the outer ring of the sending unit. Place the tip of a sturdy flat head screwdriver in the notch and gently tap it counter-clockwise. The sending unit will rotate until it's loose. (the picture above shows the fuel tank out of the car to illustrate the fuel tank sending unit's location). Now you can remove the fuel tank sending unit in one piece. Attached to it is a long rod with a float at the end, so you might have to try a couple of different angles to get it out. As usual, installation is the reverse of removal. Don't forget to plug the new sender in or it won't send you anything!

My fuel gauge is blinking an my fuel indecator is showing my tank is empty, after I fill up the tank. How do I fix this problem?


The problem would be a defective fuel tank sending unit. The fuel tank must be removed to replace it. Some sending units are serviced only as a complete fuel pump and hanger assembly. Check with your dealer to see if the sending unit is available separately or if you must buy a complete fuel pump module.

I have a 1997 Ford Escort. The Fuel Guage is stuck at 1/2 tank. How do I fix this and have guage run properly again?


If the fuel gauge is ok, but the sending unit for level in the tank is stuck, then replace the sending unit by lowering the tank and disassembling the sending unit on the tank which contains the pump and the level sensor.

If you disconnect the sending unit and the meter still says 1/2 tank, the gauge itself may be bad.

The low fuel light stays on even when tank is


Hi: Your Fuel Level Sending Unit That Is Located in Your Fuel Tank Is Probally Bad. BUT before you go to taking the Sending Unit out Of your Tank Check to see if ALL Connections To And From Tank to Gauge are Conected Good. Also You could have a Fuse that Goes to the Sending Unit,in Your Fuse Block.Check And See if You Have A Fuse Labeled Fuel Sending Unit or Fuel Sensor. If you end up Replacing The Fuel Tank Sending Unit Run Your Gas Tank Down To Almost Out Of Gas Before You Start to Remove The Metal Straps Holding Your Tank Up. Cause The Sending Unit Is on Top of Your Tank ,And Your Fuel Pump Is In The Gas Tank As Well. Hope This Has Helped You Please Send Me a Vote on How my Solutions Have Helped You And Also You Can Send Me A Testamony Thank You From the WYOCWBOY

When the gas tank is full the gas gauge shows as empty. When the gas tank is empty the gas gauge shows as full.


Well that tells me that someone installed the wrong fuel level sensor. Your going to have to drop the tank and pull the pump and float assymbly out. Then go to a parts store and get a sending unit that has the opposite resistance of that sending unit. Just wait until the tank is empty so its a lot lighter. You can call the parts store or go down and see if there is multiple sending units. The sending units work by resistance, when the tank is full the float moves up and turns a wheel in the sending unit, which either removes or increases the resistance causing the gauge to lower. The sending units either give full resistance at full or no resistance at full and then changes as the level goes down until it does the opposite at empty.
