Fuel Gauge Problem!
I don't know if anybody's had this problem, but my fuel gauge sporadically refuses to indicate, when the engine is started. It reads empty and the low fuel light comes on, even though there's lots of fuel in the tank. Sometimes I drive around town with it in that position and hope the next time I have to start the engine the gauge will register to the correct fuel amount. Sometimes it takes several tries for the gauge to actually read anything. Any thoughts out there what the problem most likely can be? Additionally, when the Jeep is parked on an incline and then I attempt to start it up, most of the time the gauge doesn't want to register.
Is this a sending unit problem, or some kind of grounding problem, or possibly even a fuel float problem? Please help. It's a pain in the butt. My Jeep is a Stock 1999 Cherokee Sport, Manual. 157000 km's on it, and in great condition.
