It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

My fuel sensor either went out or is doing what it did before. I had a diagnostics test run and Sensor B has the problem. It reads "Service Fuel System" on the dash and shows empty on the fuel gauge. This actually happened miles back. Not sure how many, but probably when I had it in the 35,000 miles range (but can't remember). I drove a few weeks on it, and then it started working again.
