Fuel Light

Hey gang,
Has anyone here had an issue with what I assume is a fuel sensor going bad ? My fuel light is constantly on after filling up a day or so ago....and YES to you smart alec's...I have plenty of fuel in the tank..
Is this going to be a pricey repair ?

I have the opposite problem. Mine won't come on. Problem is that the sensor is part of the entire pump assembly, and must be replaced as a unit. You can test it to verify that it is bad. (Don't remember the procedure, but the shop manual goes through it.)

So, yes it could be a pricey fix if you buy a new pump. Cheaper if you pick one up off ebay.

"Like a junkie trying to get his hands on the next fix,
those of us who seek the thrill of speed and danger will
do anything to get those glands pumping out that juice."
