HOW DO I FIX THIS? THE FUEL GUAGE PIN IS ALL OVER THE PLACE, MOSTY WHEN I GET DOW TO 3/4 TO 1/2 OF A TANK. DO I FIX THE FUEL PUMP? OR THE FUEL SENDING UNIT? WHAT DO I DO? I WANT THE CHEAPEST WAY THAT ACTUALLY WORKS BECAUSE I THINK $600 FOR SOMETHING THAT MINOR IS OUT OF THE QUESTION... I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO , WHERE TO GO, OR START. I NEED TO KNOW HOW MUCH GAS I HAVE AND IM TIRED OF CALCULATING MILAGE. PLEAS HELP. THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP.

I had the same problem last year. You need to replace the Fuel Guage Sensor. Minor part, near fuel pump.

thanks... is that exactly what the part is called? like how much did it cost , and could you tell me exactly what I need to say to the mechanic???

Hopefully you let the mechanic diagnose it , rather than you having him/her replace a part because someone elses car had 'that' problem. A single broken wire is an easy fix too , unless you have to remove the entire dash assembly to get to the wire. Then that fifty cent connector just turned into an expensive repair. My point being , for those reading this now (well after the original posting), is that some repairs can sound and look easy ,until the work needs done. Does a repair manual tell you how to deal with extreme rust or corrosion? No , they simply tell you to remove bolts or nuts , or dis-connect a connector that's been together undisturbed for ten years. It's all easy! yeah.....sorry , just tired of good tech work being so under-rated and mis-understood.
