Hi all,

The fuel gauge in my '03 Taurus does not indicate the actual fill level. It travels up and down from full to empty so I have resorted to using the trip meter.

Has anyone experienced this problem? I'd like to fix it myself so any help or part numbers are much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

It's probably not the gauge itself, but rather the sending unit in the fuel tank. You need to drop the tank to get to it.

If yours is a flex fuel vehicle, the problem is likely the "Fuel Pump Driver Module" part number YF1Z-14A069-AA. It is located behind the radio control panel.

Glad somebody on here always remembers the FFV quirks!
