    The contacts on the resistor are pretty delicate looking, so it might be tough to clean them with a brush or scraper without damage. Also the there are tiny little fingers on the float part that often break off and cause issues. If you see broken fingers, then you'll need a new level sender unit.

    (1) Raise and support the car on it's chassis.. (Be safe) support the rear end from under the pumpkin (center) with your jack...
    (2) Remove inner driver side rear fender well..
    (3) Remove the single (1) 10mm bolt and pull down on the filler neck..
    (4) Remove exhaust hangers.. Let the "over" axle pipe rest on the axle...
    (5) Remove BOTH panhard bar bolts.. The upper one on the passenger side may need BFH persuation..lol
    (6) Slightly lower the axle on the jack so you can get the top panhard bolt clear of the spring ..
    (7) Remove panhard and set aside..
    (8) RE-raise the axle (BUT NO NOT RAISE THE WHOLE CAR).. Just raise the axle slightly..
    (9) Remove the lower shock mount bolts..
    (10) Remove fuel tank strap bolts there will be 2 bolts close to the axle up in the "hump".. (look up in there)..
    (11) Swing down and out then remove the straps (by unclipping the ends)..
    (12) Let the fuel tank rest on the axle..
    (13) Carefully "SLOWLY" lower the axle untill the drivers side wire harness is "just visable".. reach in and remove the (2) piece harness plug from it's mount..
    (14) Disconnect the "quick" disconnect fuel line, return line, and breather line/s....
    (15) Continue to lower the axle keeping an eye and a hand on the tank so it does'nt fall..
    (16) STOP!
    (17) Reach in on either side of the fuel tank (plastic) firmly grasping it's sides and then slowly slide the tank down and out....


    Just incase you don't want to cut the "trap door"..

    I have a question

    I am haveing a problem with my gas gauge as well, when I fill up it takes for ever for the needel to go to full and this is the kicker when I come to a stop for a few seconds the needel goes all the way to empty and the light comes on. Any thoughts?

    I would dose it with Chevron Techron for starters.

    ^^^^and if that doesn't work then its most likely a fuel level sensor problem.
