Open the clamps on the fuel tank.
Fuel Level Sensor [B]
Check that the float moves up and down smoothly without
binding. It should go down under its own weight.
If the float does not move smoothly, replace the sensor.
Float in Full Position [A]
Float in Empty Position [B]
Float Arm Stoppers [C]
Using the hand tester [A], measure the resistance across
the terminals in the fuel level sensor lead connector [B].
Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394
If the tester readings are not as specified, or do not
change smoothly according as the float moves up and
down, replace the sensor.
Fuel Level Sensor Resistance
Install a new gasket [A] on the fuel tank [B] as shown.
[D] Front Side
Apply a non-permanent locking agent to the threads of
the level sensor mounting bolts and tighten them.
Torque - Fuel Level Sensor Mounting Bolts: 6.9 N·m (0.70
Full position: 4 ∼ 10 Ω
Empty position [E]: 90 ∼ 100 Ω
