(a) Check the fuel sender gauge resistance.

(1) Check that the float moves smoothly between the F level (upper end) and E level (lower end).

(2) Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between connector terminals 2 (FS) and 1 (FE) at the upper and lower ends of the float. Check that the resistance varies uniformly. Standard resistance

Float Level

Resistance (Q)

F (Upper End)

12.0 to 18.0

E (Lower End)

405.0 to 415.0

If the result is not as specified, replace the fuel sender gauge assembly.
