Re: Gas Gauge or Sending Unit?
With the key off, did the gauge always go back to empty?
If it did, flick the gauge with your finger or smack it with a screwdriver handle.
If you read ohms from the disconnected gauge tan wire, or in the trunk, to ground, do you ohms and how many? 90 ohms = full, 45 = half tank, 22 = 1/4 tank, all approximate.
You might get a potentiometer/rheostat from an electronics parts store, i.e., Radio Shack, of a range of 0-100 would be ideal, 0-500, 0-1000 ohms. Attach the center lead to the disconnected tan wire and the left lead to ground. You should be able to rotate the gauge through its range by turning the pot. If you can control the gauge, even from the tan wire sending unit, you can assume the wiring and gauge are good. sending unit needs attention.
An ohmmeter reading should be indicated when measuring the unit from its terminal to ground.
