The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.

    April 1st my engine quit and I coasted to a parking spot. Gas Gauge still showed just under 1/4 tank. Towed it in to the dealer and they said I was out of gas. They dropped the tank and replaced the fuel sensor. I got down below a 1/4 tank again a couple of days ago and the engine quit again. I walked 4 miles round trip to get a can of gas and it started right up. Tank was empty again. I took it to the dealer with a full tank and said he could find no problem. Everything checked out okay. Could not repeat the problem. Said to bring it back again if it does it again and it is empty. Presently I am driving around with a can of gas in my car.

    Fuel gauge read 1/4 tank left and ran out of gas then read 1/2 tank of gas and ran out, finally read almost 3/4 tank left and ran out of gas... Fuel sensor and installation roughly $425.00!

    The first time the truck ran out of gas with the gauge showing a little less than 1/4 tank. The dealer replaced the fuel sensor. A year later it has happened again.

    Truck just won't start, like it is not getting gas. Usually this is common when the fuel pump fails. However, it happened once before and I put a extra gallon of gas in and it started right up.
