The sender is in the gas tank and the tank must be dropped to replace it. If you are going to that expense, buy a new sending unit. In the meantime, calculate your MPG and zero the trip odometer when you fill up so you know how many miles have been traveled.

Used, really no used, why did the first one go bad? Get a brand new one, seeing as you're gonna have to take the mounting straps off the gas tank, drop 'er down to get to this thing...why take this trouble if you are going to have to repeat it? Will shop for you-

It's a nine year old car - might as well install a new fuel pump with that new sending unit.
