my 88 with the 302 is on the firewall on the inside, just above the brake. did it just happen all the sudden or did it sputter out, or did you hit something?

well try resetting the inertia switch, then check the fuel pump relay under the hood.

check the fuel pump relay wire connections at the relay the wires may have broken or the insulation stripped off causing it to short also it isnt a bad idea to replace the relay itself. check the power wire to the fuel pump relay to see if it has pulled out of the plug.

Cool fuel gauge reads erraticly

Question sending unit

thought about something else, what if the sending unit is ok? i know there might be a way to check but dont remember how to do it. also, when the gas gauge reads full, the needle goes way past the full mark. it would run parallel with the bottom of the instrument panel...as i try to illustrate here:

E 1/2 F
\ | /
\
\
\ <-------needle on gauge

this is what it shows after the gas falls below half i think...

E 1/2 F
\ | /


_________ <-------needle on guage

this is what it shows when i fill the tank up, does this mean that the sending unit is still not working or does it mean something else, let me know asap....
