Hello. In my Lincoln Town Car Limusine (1989) the needle of the fuel is always in full and I do not know if there is fuel or not inside the tank. I do not know how to solve this problem. Thank you.

Do you
have the same problem?

I'd take the sending unit connector loose, that unit should be in the gas tank. My info shows yellow wire with white tracer is for the sending unit. Use 22 ohm resistor touching terminal for that wire color, with key on touch to vehicle ground. The gage should read empty, if it does, the sending unit in the tank may be faulty?
