Fuel guage operation
Got a fuel gauage that started acting funny today...
its always seemed to "stick" and then drop considerably rather than smoothly drop as the tank empties, but its hard to say since it has operated consistantly since I bought the truck 5 months ago...
Today, it suddenly went to max full (with over 200 miles drawn down on the tank ~ it should have been slightly ove 1/2) ... then dropped after a while to 3/4, then up to full, and back and forth... all of this on flat level ground at constant speed, so fuel distribution in the tank is not the issue...
At first I figured a short, but I would think that would kill the guage, not send it to max... fuel sender... is there a way to test this... haven't crawled under there yet, but is the sender on top of the tank...?
LOVE THIS TRUCK ~ thank gooddness for the low fuel warning light!
