The sending unit will be in the tank and is an integral part of the fuel pump assembly, You will have to take the tank out to change it.

You need a new sender unit and pump. If you take it out, you can check if the float has come off the stalk?

Ford Escape 2011 Fuel Delivery Diagram. Ran my scan tool and had P0455 and P0456 and found the Canister Purge Valve next to my Throtle Position Sensor was degraded by leaking vacuum. Replaced Sensor


Most likely the sending unit attached to the fuel pump module is the source of the erratic fuel gauge. The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and can be accessed through a panel located under the drivers rear seat.

Do you know if they also replaced the sending unit in the tank ?
It could also be a problem with the gauge on the dash.

'05 ford escape - car won't start if fuel below 1/4 tank


Not sure about P0195, but P093 is for a problem with the fuel rail pressure sensor. The sensor could be faulty or it could be accurate when the fuel system is empty.
Your sending unit for the fuel gauge could be off. Can you check the amount of fuel it takes to fill the tank when the gauge reads half ? If the gauge is right it should take half of the capacity of the tank to fill it up.

My gas guage doesn't work in my truck. 1994 ford ranger,single cab,4.0L V6.


The most common reason is the sending unit inside the gas tank, look under the truck and locate the fuel tank, look for wires going to the tank,the wires will lead to top of the tank, unplug connector and fuel gauge should go to full, if the gauge moves then its the sending unit inside the tank, this would mean the wiring is good and the gauge also works and that leave the sending unit. good day.

My 2005 ford escape just died after i filled it up with gas and drove down the street and the fuel gage read 3/4 tank after i just completely filled it, 5 different codes were takin, coil #1, coil #2, coil...


sounds like a quad driver has died. unfortunetly it is in the ecm computer. this needs checked throughly it is an exspensive part. as far as the fuel sensor it's part of the sending unit, it comes with the pump. not cheap either. if you can live with the gauge and keep check on your fuel milage I would wait till the pump went out.

Trying to locate electrical junction to test fuel level sensor


Fuel Level Indication System The fuel level indication system is a magnetic gauge system. It consists of a magnetic fuel gauge (9280) mounted in the instrument cluster (10849) and a sending unit located in the fuel tank (9002) with an instrument cluster gauge amplifier (10E849) in series between the two. No instrument voltage regulator is used with this system. Fuel Gauge
The magnetic gauge movement consists of three primary coils, one of which is wound at a 90-degree angle to the other two. The coils form a magnetic field which varies in direction according to the variable resistance of the sender unit which is connected between two of them. A primary magnet, to which a shaft and pointer are attached, rotates to align to this primary field, resulting in pointer position. The bobbin/coil assembly is pressed into a metal housing which has two holes for dial mounting. There is no adjustment, calibration or maintenance required for these gauges. The instrument cluster amplifier is calibrated to the fuel gauge. The instrument cluster amplifier and fuel gauge must be replaced as a system. Instrument Cluster Gauge Amplifier/Check Gauge Module
The instrument cluster gauge amplifier electrically averages fuel sender readings so the fuel gauge displays actual fuel level and not fluctuations due to sloshing in fuel tank. The instrument cluster gauge amplifier is a small printed circuit board which latches into a pocket on the back of the instrument cluster. The electrical connections for ignition, ground, input from fuel sender and output to fuel gauge are made through a spring-type connector on the instrument cluster gauge amplifier to the instrument cluster printed circuit (10K843) on the instrument cluster. There are no provisions for calibration or adjustment of the instrument cluster gauge amplifier.
Fuel Sending Unit
The fuel sending unit consists of a variable screened resistor made up of a ceramic substrate. It is controlled by the action of an attached float in the fuel tank. When the fuel level is low, resistance in the sending unit is low. When the fuel level is high, the resistance in the sending unit is high. As the float moves from empty to full, the resistance will gradually and continuously increase. f9e3b50.gif
