    Hi guys,
    This morning I filled up the fuel tank but the fuel gage on the dashboard remains at E, empty,
    Any suggestions to what might be causing this fault???

    I imagine the fuel level sensor is the culprit.

    If you unplug the sensor and jump the terminals at the harness connector, the gauge should swing to full.

    Hi greasytshirt,
    I don’t mean to be a pain in the butt but it’s the fuel sensor, the small round part that’s bolted to the top of the fuel tank?
    And if so, all I will need to do it’s, unplug the sensor, unbolt the part and replace it with a new one, correct?

    Yes and yes.

    The plug/wires that connect to the sensor.

    where Do the wires that leave the fuel sensor on the tank connect to??
    It’s a long wire that seems to go under the cabin somewhere??
    If I could find where those wires connect to I could unplugged them as well to see if the gage will swing back up.

    You need to connect the 2 wires together and if the gauge goes to full then the sensor is bad.

    Thank you FlyingVan,

    Fuel Level Sensor was the culprit!!
    I just connected both wires and the gauge went right up to full.
    You guys are really good, I’m impressed, right on the money again.
    I love this website!!!
    Took me a bit to understand what actually had to be done but FlyingVan made it cristal clear.
    Thank you greasytshirt & FlyingVan, you guys Rock
