Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When you fill up, how high does the gauge go?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
3 quarters
Expert:  Jay replied 4 months ago.

Ok. When it goes to 3/4 of a tank, you are looking at two possibilities. It could either be two bad fuel level senders which are in the tank, or the actual fuel gauge it's self. Let me give you the checks for the fuel senders so you can remove them and inspect them. If with in specification, then you are looking at most likely a cluster assembly since that is the only way you can get the gauge.

Is this a coupe or sedan?

ok, give me a few to get you the check for that.. Hang on please...

Expert:  Jay replied 4 months ago.

That is the check for the fuel level senders. They are common, but the gauge is also just as common.

Or, senders and gauge..
