1991 Mercury Marquis V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
I Replaced the in-tank fuel pump about 1 yr ago. Fuel Guage was reading ok for awhile. Had to drain some bad gas out of tank before replacing pump. Not sure we got it all out. Fuel gauge was working for a brief period. The Auto is a back up and used occasionally. With the key off, guage shows slightly below full every time. When key is turned on the guage goes beyond full mark and goes out of site. It never goes down to the empty side even after you have burned some fuel and turned off ignition. Also "check engine" lite comes on/off sporatically. When it does the auto seems to buck for a quick second and sometimes stalls when idling. Can this be a fuel pump problem indicator? Whats your best thoughts as to what it might be causing it to stay on the full side. I had it changed out by a repair shop. Is their a chance the sensor or float or whatever is not working, or grounded. How can I trouble shoot it myself to avoid dropping out the tank, if the pumps the real problem? TKS Larry
