1999 XJ Fuel gauge issue
I've been off the board for a while Things have been crazy this winter for me, but i'm back to tinkering with my XJ and have a small issue I'm trying to trouble shoot. Last fall my XJ left me walking, I turned it off and it would not start. some guys swore it was the fuel pump and started hitting the bottom of the tank till I yelled at them to leave it alone. I went and got my truck towed it home and found it to be my crank positioning sensor. Easy enough fix, then the next week I was driving it to work and she died 50 yards short of the parking lot....was not a fun push. I knew the gas gauge was low but I always had a fuel light when she go real low. I had no light so i call a mechanic friend of mine as i was at work and could not work on it, he came up and after looking at it he hit the fuel tank with his hand and it was empty so he ran and got me some gas and dumped it in and she fired right up. So she is running good no issues other then the fuel gauge is jacked up so did the guys bust my sending unit when hitting the tank or is it electrical since my fuel light didn't come on? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated I hope to take a serious look at it this weekend.
Have similar issue...am replacing fuel pump assy. $300 bucks for a bosch....but it sure beats walking down the interstate @ 2a.m.
