Hello All the gauges including the temp gauge work fine. The fuel
gauge is stuck on empty... Could this be a bad gauge or sending unit
in the tank? Is there an access for the sending unit or does the tank
have to be dropped? Thanks Nat

Your fuse must be broke. What about the rest of the gauges?

Could be fuse, guage, or sender. I'd get a service manual. Oh, duh, I had a
'95 and the manual is still around. The resistance across the sender should read
3.8 to 8.5 Ohms full, 83.6 to 93.6 Ohms empty. I'd check it full first.
There's also a point on the back of the instrument panel that you can ground
briefly (less than 10 seconds), and the guage should go to full scale.

There's a pretty good description of how to test it all on pages EL40-41 of the
'94 service manual ('95s used the '94 service manual plus a supplement).

Dunno about access, on my '01 it's easy, there's an access hole in the floor.
