Question type: Maintenance & Repair

OK my fuel gauge was all ways reading full, so I
changed out the whole pump including the sending
unit, now my gauge reads empty on a full tank, any
ideas what's going on?

A gas gauge that always reads empty is a bad ground connection. A gauge that always reads full is a bad power connection. Since changing the fuel pump module changed the dash gauge's behavior, look for a bad ground at or near the fuel pump module assembly. HTH. -Jim
