Ok after pulling out both fuel sending units left/right to test them for ohms. doing some research the specs for the sensors are 50 to 70 ohms on an empty tank and 401 to 415 ohms on a full tank. My readings on my meter were OFL on empty tank and 450 ohms on a full tank. Sounds like I may need to replace both sending units since there both not within specs.
