You need to have the fuel level sensor replaced, I have replaced many for the same problem.

Inside the gas tank attached to the fuel sending unit. The gas tank needs to be removed or at least lowered to do this job.

Don't give up its not that hard to change. if you have any repair abilities at all I'm sure you can do it. I look at it this way, if someone else can do it, so can I. The only thing so far that I was unable to do is change the point on my water well at the house. And yes I tried!!!! Thank GOD I have not needed any surgery!!

I grew up in Bath by Lansing. Now I live in Novi, a far suburb of Detroit.
