Fuel level sensor replaced 5 times!!
Hi all. I am quite frustrated with my fuel level sensor -- driver side controls 0 to half. I have replaced it 5 times! Each time it works for a week or 2 then gets stuck. So the gas gauge reads wrong. Or stuck.
We open the tank and find the stem of the sensor is twisted or snapped.
I get the feeling the sensor and spring travel is not enough. Or it is too tall and tightening it adds stress and it breaks.
Has anyone else had fuel level sensor fail or had multiple fails? Would it be reasonable to shave down the foot so the sensor is shorter. Which allows the spring to pick up the slack? Other ideas?
