I bought this truck about a year ago and I have had to make the usual repairs to any used vehicle. I've done well except now my gas gauge does not want to read correctly and its blowing my mind. One day it reads fine the next it either shows empty or a half tank past full (the needle is maxed out to the right) lol. Which first came to my mind possibly the wiring. Here is what throws me for a loop. When the engine is running and I am rolling, if I push in the clutch the gas gauge jumps back to empty. I let off and it throws its self all the way to the right again to full. Of course if I hit the brake the needle quickly drops but at a stop it goes back to full. So is it the wiring or the sending unit shorting out?
I would like to get this figured out so I can get my investment back to satisfactory. Or at least until I can get the engine overhauled lol.
Not sure if it will be any more helpful being that its the gauge I'm worried about but I have a picture of my engine posted (yeah she isn't pretty).
