My fuel gauge would either be stuck at empty or at full. So I searched for fuel gauge and finally go to enough confidnece to take the sending unit out and clean it. It was slightly disgusting. I have started using biobor as fuel adative a few weeks ago. Will the sludge eventually clean out, or do I need to do something to clean out the fuel tank?

2nd question: The climate control blower comes on intermitantly. When it is on ((sometimes banging the passenger side lower dash) it does blow strong. Do I need to replace the entire blower or can I just replace the brushes and/or someother rebuild procedure?

Thanks again for any input.

I really love this site.

You have to replace the blower motor. They have bushings in them instead of bearings and they do wear out.

The filters will eventually get out the sludge, but I would think that it will take quite a while.

BTW, the fuel gauge is still not working. Do I need to replace the sending unit?
