Malfunctioning Fuel Guage '99 Windstar

How to repair my fuel guage. I fill it up and it hesitates, may not move or partially. Sometimes fuel light appears on dashboard. So, I am not sure how much gas I have in the tank!

Likely with a 9 year old Windstar you need a new sending unit, which is located in the fuel tank. It may be part of the fuel pump assembly. I don’t even have a guess as to the cost for your Windstar but you can ask around and maybe someone here can give you a good idea of what to expect. As long as you don’t let it go dry you can live without it.

The part should run about $35 if its the sending unit… Figure 1.5-2 hours max for labor, so depending on going rates in your area, around $150-175 for the repair.

Or just keep track of your mileage via the trip odometer and never go anywhere near your max range. You’ll be stopping to fill up more often, but so long as you pay attention, you’ll never run out of gas…
