My gas will be above half and I’ll get in my car and start it, and the gas gauge reads empty and the gas light is on. My car has been throwing a EVAP code but I replaced a lot of parts and idk if any of the EVAP parts affect the fuel gauge

I'm interested in what the top of the fuel pump assembly looks like. I've heard they are prone to cracking. I seen you posting a lot about the EVAP issue and that would contribute. As for the level, I'm not entirely sure. Maybe a bad sending unit or wiring. Leaning more towards the sending unit if the wiring hasn't been touched.

Thank you for helping out 🙏 I have replaced the fuel pump before, but with a ep3 fuel pump. I was told it works fine

As long as it doesn't look like mine, you should be okay. How was condition of the rubber seal around the assembly?
Yea mine looked just like that, it was squirting fuel everywhere & the seal that came with the new one was a little weird so I believe I used the OEM one and it fit firmly. I do remember hearing a weird noise installing it, but payed no attention to it so I’m wondering if it was the float

That's another good possibility I didn't think about. Could be worth pulling out and checking.

Damn those are $420 new with the 24% discount.

I read the 05-06 gas tanks are revised and has less problems with gas evaperating from the tank like the 02-04. the 05-06 gas tank is moved back further about 7-8 inches.

www.oemacuraparts.com If you are having trouble finding something on their catalog let me know I have it mastered lol...

Tim there is great customer service. If something goes wrong with the order and I get shorted or something he sends overnight to make it right.

I think one average I have spent $500-$600 on new oem hardware (flange bolts, studs, nuts, etc.) on my DC5. There are new bolts everywhere. It looks clean.

sucks to see nice builds with nice parts and restoring oem bolts is overlooked, exposing rusty bolts next to bling sucks
