XA Falcon: Fuel Guage Problems
I have a stock as a rock XA sedan with a standard dash in it. With the change of season, the fuel guage has started not reading - I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the temperatures or not though.
When freshly filled, the guage will read fine, although it is slower to read full than it used to be. As the fuel tank starts to unload the guage will read till around 3/4 full, then nothing from 3/4-empty. The guage simply sits at it's rest state of reading empty. Fill the tank up again, and it will read full without a worry.
Is the problem likely to be in the sender or the guage? Who's experienced this and what was your remedy? Will the temperature have anything to do with the guage reading slowly, and not reading at all? I'm not really interested in sending it to a shop at the moment, it is only a minor inconvenience, and I still have a very good idea of fuel left in the tank by the mileage?
