Ford: a 1996 holiday rambler..chassis..fuel gauge..sending unit…

Customer Question
I'm working on a 1996...
I'm working on a 1996 holiday rambler setting on a ford chassis. The fuel gauge sets on full or above all the time. the shop replaced the sending unit in the tank and it is the same. I tested the voltage at the gauge and on the full side it it at 6 volts and 12 volts on the empty side. the ground it good at the gauge. I'm not sure if this has a IVR or not. any Ideas?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
