My fuel gauge is not working after replacing the fuel pump
With the help of a friend, I replaced the fuel pump on my 1989 Doge Caravan 2.5L non turbo minivan. The day after replacing the fuel pump, I noticed that my fuel gauge was not working. It shows the needle on the gauge to the bottom of being empty. The fuel gauge was working fine before I replaced the fule pump. After replacing the fuel pump, I noticed that some fuel was dripping down from the top of the fuel tank. Then it stopped. I believe that this was due to some loose screws at the filling pipe. I am thinking that the dripping gasoline may had made contact with the electrical part of the sending unit. Also, I suspect that the friend who helped me may have installed the return tubing on the wring side He installed a tube on preasure release valve. On my service manual for the minivan I don't see any tube attached to the preassure relieve valve. I noticed that when I lifted the minivan from the back after replacing the fuel pump that is when the fuel gauge stopped working. I will appreciate any feedback. Master T if you are still around, please give some suggestions. Your feedback in the past have been very helpfull. Thanks
