There is a float. If you're inside the cockpit facing the back seat it's on your left. It's mounted to the fuel pump mount. I had this same problem with my '96 Tercel when I installed a Supra fuel pump. It WAS in fact "sticking". I pulled the assembly out again and made sure the "wire stick" that holds the float wasn't bent, then, i "lubed" it with some good old WD-40 and reinstalled. Turned the car on and BAM works like new. You must be very carefull not to bend the wire holding the float in place because it doesn't get a whole lot of clearance inside the tank and can easily get caught on a wall.

The Ranger fuel gauge could have several problems causing it not to work. These problems include, blown fuse, bad wiring, loose connections, or a bad fuel sending unit in the fuel tank.

Most fuel gauge problems are the result of a faulty fuel gauge sending unit located in the fuel tank.

Take out the fuel gauge and fish for the magnet inside the fuel tank. Then disassemble the fuel gauge to replace the broken magnet. Reassemble and replace. Done...

The cause of the faulty fuel gauge is probably the fuel gauge sending unit located inside the fuel tank. Replacing the sending unit would require dropping the fuel tank.

Try hitting the dashboard directly above the fuel gauge. A nice thump might release a gauge one a Volvo.

Most fuel gauge problems are caused by a faulty fuel gauge sending unit. The fuel gauge sending unit is located inside the fuel tank. In most cases the fuel tank must be removed to replace the sending unit.

Several things can cause the gas gauge to not work. Check the fuel gauge fuse, the wiring, the gauge, and the fuel sending unit to find the problem.

If your fuel gauge is out of wack, go to the local parts store and orfer some fuel gauge wack. Pour it directly into the gauge until it is full of wack..........

To fix a broken speedometer and fuel gauge on a VW beetle, the parts need to be taken out and replaced. This can be done at any Volkswagen dealership.รŠ

you drop the fuel tank and replace the sending unit

You will have to replace the fuel sending unit inside of the fuel tank.

Most of the time, the fuel gauge is not the problem. The problem rests with the sending unit in the fuel tank. To fix it, you must replace the sending unit. This is done in different ways depending on the position of the tank in your particular truck.

Usually the fuel level sensor in the fuel pump. ANSWER A 1993 Ford Explorer also has a 15 amp fuse in location # 17 for the fuel gauge

The floater inside your pump is sticking. You will have to replace your fuel pump in order to fix this problem.

User Avatar

More than likely the fuel gauge sending unit inside the fuel tank is shot.

Probably not. In most cases the problem is the sending unit inside the fuel tank.

User Avatar

Replace the fuel leveling sensor that is on the fuel sending unit that's inside of the fuel tank.

Could be bad gauge or float stuck in fuel tank

The fuel level sensor has probably gone belly up on you. You may need to get a new one.
