    My wifes car was running low on juice the other day. Put approximately 3 gallons in and it's still showing empty after two days later. I'm assuming it's a faulty tank sender. Anyone know where to get access to this or any other diagnostic info
    THANKS

    Not 100% sure but the fuel pump is accessed from underneath the car.

    There's mention here that it's fixed itself after a few days, if that's of any help.

    The sender can sometimes jam when it gets to an absolute low.
