Answer Replace it. Just replaced mine as it was always on "Full" or above. Seems to be OK now. Aussie Bill.


Fair enough but I'd suggest seeing if the fault is elsewhere first, such as a poor electrical connection on the supply or earth side of the sender or gauge. If these are OK... establish if it is the sender on the tank, or the gauge itself, that has failed.

How do you replace a nonworking gas gauge for a 1988 Lincoln town car?

First you have to determine if the problem is the gauge in the dash, a bad fuel level sending unit, or a wiring problem. You'll need a digital ohm meter and a wiring diagram to check it out. If you're sure it's the dash gauge and the gauge is part of the instrument cluster, you can take it to a local speedometer repair shop and they can fix it. Or, you can look on the internet for speedometer/instrument repair shops. Rick I'm a retired ASE Master/L-1 Technician. I still keep current with the latest automotive technology.
