2007 Montego Fuel Sensor?

Post by vdelo » Tue Jan 23, 2018 2:54 pm

I just bought a used 2007 Montego with 53000 miles. It runs great. I was on my first tank and had driven about 270 miles when the fuel gauge went from just over 1/4 of a tank to empty. The low fuel warnings came on etc. I drove the car another 2 miles or so before it stalled out. When I got the car to a gas station it only accepted about 13 gallons of fuel (the tank is 20 gallons). The gauge went right to full, and the car runs great again. Anyone know what is wrong? A quick google says it may be the fuel level sensor but the car doesnt seem to have all of the symptoms.

If it has a “saddle tank” then there will be a transfer pump which may have failed.
