morning everyone

I have a 1987 wrangler with the six cylinder in it i am having a problem with the fuel gauge needle bouncing all over the place and the temperature gauge isnt working either. If anyone out there has any ideas on a good place to start it would be greatly appreciated im not sure if the sending unit is bad or if it is the gauge itself seeing how the temperature gauge is next to it and it isnt working either.

I'd suggest you post your question here: YJ Jeep Wrangler Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum
I think you'll get more answers. Sorry I can't help but it sounds like a wiring problem since both are messing up.

In the mean time . . .

Thanks for the reply. im still trying to navigate my way around this site. I found the problem all i needed to do was pull the gauges out check the connections and clean the corrosion off said connections and clean them all up to get good contact they are both working fine now. it was pretty dirty back there.
