Refer to the Fuel Pressure Leak Down Test in this group for more information. Voltage to operate the electric pump is supplied through the fuel pump relay. FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT The fuel gauge sending unit (fuel level sensor) is attached to the side of the fuel pump module (Fig. 2). The sending unit consists of a float, an arm, and a variable resistor (track). The resistor track is used to send electrical signals to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) for fuel gauge operation and for OBD II emission requirements. For fuel gauge operation: As fuel level increases, the float and arm move up. This decreases the sending unit resistance, causing the fuel gauge to read full. As fuel level decreases, the float and arm move down. This increases the sending unit resis- tance causing the fuel gauge to read empty. After this fuel level signal is sent to the PCM, the Fig. 1 Fuel Tank/Fuel Pump Module (Top View) PCM will transmit the data across the CCD bus cir- cuits to the instrument panel. Here it is translated into the appropriate fuel gauge level reading. For OBD II emission requirements: The voltage signal is sent from the resistor track to the PCM to indicate fuel level. The purpose of this feature is to prevent a false setting of misfire and fuel system monitor trouble codes. This is if the fuel level in the tank is less than approximately 15 percent of its rated capacity. FUEL FILTER/FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR A combination fuel filter and fuel pressure regula- tor is used on all engines. It is located on the top of fuel pump module (Fig. 1).

The injectors are attached to the fuel rail. The nozzle ends of the injectors are positioned into openings in the intake manifold just above the intake valve ports of the cylinder head. The engine wiring harness connector for each fuel injector is equipped with an attached numerical tag (INJ 1, INJ 2 etc.). This is used to identify each fuel injector. The injectors are energized individually in a sequential order by the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM will adjust injector pulse width by switching the ground path to each individual injector on and off. Injector pulse width is the period of time that the injector is energized. The PCM will adjust injector pulse width based on various inputs it receives. During start up, battery voltage is supplied to the injectors through the ASD relay. When the engine is operating, voltage is supplied by the charging sys- Fig. 3 Fuel Filter/Fuel Pressure Regulator tem. The PCM determines injector pulse width basedThis will help to start the engine.

It is also used to keep the fuel supply line full of gasoline when pump is not operational. After the vehicle has cooled down, fuel pressure may drop to 0 psi (cold fluid contracts), but liquid gasoline will remain in fuel supply line between the check valve and fuel injectors. Fuel pressure that has dropped to 0 psi on a cooled down vehicle (engine off) is a normal condition. When the elec- tric fuel pump is activated, fuel pressure should immediately rise to specification. NOTE: The fuel pressure test port is used on cer- tain engines only.
