Car was cranking but not starting. I tunked on the fuel tank and it started. Does this mean the fuel pump is bad or the sending unit or should I replace them both?

Do you
have the same problem?

Yep, the pump has a dead spot. Replace the pump.

You can get just the pump. If the sender is working ok, just do the pump. Otherwise, replace the module assembly
