It's the float inside the fuel sending unit. You need to drop the gas tank to access this

Best Answer Mark helpful

So all I need to do is replace the float and it should work?

Unfortunately the only way to change the float is to change the entire fuel sending unit

Your best bet would probably be Napa, they're about 300-350$ but the quality is unmatched

Ok thanks man. Also would I or should I replace the fuel pump aswell?
