Front fuel tank not registering?

When I switch to my front tank on my 97 the needle immediatly goes to all the way above full. The truck still runs on the tank though. What needs replaced in my fuel tank ??

Pull the sending unit out of the tank and check the wire, same thing happened to me.

You dont need to drop the tank either.

alright thanks. How will I be able to tell there is a problem just a bad connection or what? I've never messed with a fuel tank so I've got no clue

Once you disconnect the fuel lines and plug for the sending unit, remove the lock ring. Next pull the sending unit out, you will have to wiggle it and turn it but take your time. More then likely the yellow wire inside the tank on the sending unit broke off. The sending units are not cheap either, unless you find one used.
