Re: fuel gauge not working
I would suggest first to check continuity of the tan wire from the trunk thru the sending unit to the ground wire on the passeger side strap with an ohmmeter. Ninety ohms is full, forty-five is half full, and so on.
Of course, this is with the tan wire disconnected before the gauge. If you read the resistance listed, then the path is okay. Usually, its the ground wire needing a little TLC, or the brass float now has gasoline inside and does not float any more, hence, empty tank is indicated.
With this said, a resistor of say, 50 ohms, tied to the disconnected tan wire in the body harness and the other end/lead of the resistor grounded, the gauge should read half full/empty.
