Fuel sender About 8 months overdue

now i have been meaning to fix my non working fuel gauge for about 8 months now and im going to tackle it this weekend.

The problem is that the fuel gauge reads all the way up to full then like drops way past empty and thats how it stays until i restart the car and it does the same thing without fail everytime.

Just before it stopped working the gauge would read all sorts of wrong tank ammounts.

I was reading a while back about thins being common and bending or replacing something. Can somebody give me a full run down on the best way to rip out sender/pump ect would be greatly appreciated.

Damn Steve your killing me here! If you put someing heavy on the rear floor, front of the back seat, somehow, you cut the signal from the fuel tank to the dash! Dont' ask me how it does it, I'm not sure. Rip up that carpet, and either put something around the cable, or move it to the side.

That happens in the AUs as well. So, I'm just supposing that it's your signal wire that's been crushed.
