OK thanks for the info . It sounds like one of your fuel level sensors is defective or intermittently acting up

Expert:  Andy replied 1 year ago.

Check the resistance of the fuel senders using an ohmeter. They should be anywhere between 29-37 ohms when tank is full to 234-246 ohms when empty . So anything between those readings is ok as long as it follows how much fuel is in tank . Anything outside of that range would indicate a defective sender and would need to be replaced . This is almost always the issue with these transferring systems as the senders wear out and do not give the proper reading anymore . Let me knnow if you need further instruction . Thanks
