You just replace the sender... The rest of the guts you re-use...:thumbsup:

It's about $70 bucks for a sender... Easy to do I did mine in 1 hour...

The float on mine disintegrated and fell off. My buddies did the same thing. He bought a new sending unit and I lucked out and found a whole new module on ebay for $35. So probably a new sending unit would fix yours.

Like I said its a dealer only part and ask him for only the fuel level sender. My dealer in Ontario, OR keeps about 5 of them in stock at all time. They run about $70 bucks. This is WITHOUT internal pump or basket... Just the sender...

I had an error code from starting the truck without the plug on the sender, but no code when it was just faulty. I paid $54 for the sending unit at the dealer.

mine acts up as well. goes to a wacky level then to empty, i just go by mileage for now till i get bored and want to replace it. only that that gets annoying is everytime the gauge drops off, it chimes...
