I recently had my fuel gauge stop working. (below E when full) Replaced the sending unit and found the old one to be good so it wasn't that. (replaced it anyway)
I have moved on to "guessing" the gauge cluster is bad. I have located one that will work, it is used but it is high mileage, my truck has 48K on it.
Is the odo changable? Can I use my old odometer (w/ 48K) in the used higher mileage cluster???
Also, the replacement is for an auto. trans.. I have a 6 sp.. Will that work out okay?

The digital odometer should be tracked by the PCM so if you replace the cluster, you're original miles should show right back up
I'm pretty sure that is how it works but I think the dealer can only access it on the PCM. I'm not 100% sure so don't take my word for it.
