Gas guage WILL NOT show an accurate reading...

(1990 Jeep Wrangler)
in Carrollton, GA on November 11, 2010
I HAVE A 1984 CJ-7 JEEP...The gas guage doesn't show an accurate reading. When the switch is turned on the guage needle goes to FULL regardless of the amount of gas actually in the tank. I've put in an after-market gas guage, new sending unit, and run new wires.

I spent a year on a CJ-7 Jeep with this exact problem. The repair kits for the gauge and fuel sending units are awful, even from the dealer ship. I eventually had to get an entirely different fuel tank and fuel pump set-up that was designed for a totally different fuel gauge system and went to a set of Smith Gauges. What a shame, because the rest of the Jeep was basically bullet proof.
