2002 Ford Taurus Fuel Pump Replacement


#1

2002 Ford Taurus 3.0L engine, 165k miles
Check engine light is on, checked out to P0460 Fuel level sending unit condition. The fuel gauge is erratic - it was over full today before I topped it off with 10 gallons.

Question: since the sending unit is part of the fuel pump, it looks like I need to replace it. Is this a tough job? Is the fuel pump inside the gas tank (as I fear)? How difficult is this job?

Thanks

The code you gave is for a wiring problem so the trouble may be with the external wiring to the sensor.

Here is some interesting information I found about someone else who had the same trouble. You may want to add some Techron to the next tank of gas to see if that helps you also.
