I know that the gas tank in my 1995 Escort is 11.9 gallons (45 litres).
But when the gas gauge in the dash says it's empty, I fill it right up,
yet the gas pump said only 8-8.5 gallons went in. What is the cause of
my incorrect fuel gauge, and how do I remedy it?
the only way to fix it is to remove the sending unit and check the float
arm for movement. It may be able to be fixed but slightly bending the
arm or you may need to replace the entire gauge assembly..... you will
have to remove the tank to do this.
Ok, my 1995 Escort is a sedan, and the back seats are the split folding
rear seat type. So if I put down the seats, the access panel for the
fuel pump/sending unit should be rifght there, under the carpet?
