Hi Guys
How's everyone going? Hope you're all well.

My car, I believe, needs a new fuel accumulator and I've found this item on eBay. It's described as a fuel level sender Saab Part #9361965

Apparently it's for C900's made after 1983 (mine is actually a 1983 model)
Is a fuel level sender the same as a fuel accumulator?
If it is, will this one work on a 1983 car or not?

Many thanks
Rosie & Ruby

Thanks

Hi Lloyd
How goes it? My car's fuel gauge never registers as being completely full (even though the tank is brimming. The best I ever get is 3/4 full according to the gauge. Would this fuel level thingy solve that problem?

Possibly, but it could also be the gauge that is faulty. I dont know much so hopefully somone else replys.

Saabina - hope that all is well.

Lloyd is correct -- that is a fuel level transmitter.

The fuel guage issue can be lots of things, including the transmitter. Kinda trial and error to find the problem, I think.

Don't spend too much on this! A spankin' new one is just $50 (US) or so.

Take care (we still want pics!!)

Trust me its not the accumulator!

Hello again Fellow SAABer's ,

It sounds to me as though u really just need a " new fuel sender unit" not a fuel pressure accumulator which holds fuel pressure under rest pressure for restarting. Which would result in hard or no start under a variety of conditions.:D hope this helps!
BTW Rock on c900s!! oh BTW the pic is of the fuel sender which is the part u need to replace or check out!!

IF your Fuel gauge .. works.. Ie it goes up when you fill the tank and goes down when you drive.. even tho not giving a full reading when you know there tank is actually full. THEN it's not yer Sender .. the thing inna Photo (although these ARE rebuildable.. if one was of a mind to :)
You merely have to tighten the Grounding Nuts on the rear of the Dash Gauge..(Saabs are seriously affected with Ground issues :) accessed (with significant difficulty tho) thru the Speaker hole. Persevere it IS possible.. barely.
Usually these need only an 1/8 turn or so.. this Works. as advertised.
