Your fuel tank sending unit needs to be replaced. This is mounted on the fuel pump.

Here is the steps to remove the fuel pump.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

I am sorry but I do not understand your last question?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
am I looking at a complete fuel pump replacement or just a sender unit or float?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

You need to remove the fuel pump to get at the sender, the float and sender are both on the fuel pump assembly

Hello again Dan here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you’re not pleased, or need more help.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help.

Thanks Dan
