Hello, thanks for writing in. The fuel gauge is usually controlled by the fuel sending unit. The fuel sending unit is a fuel system component that is located in the gas tank. It reads the level of the fuel in the gas tank and sends the signal to the gauge. For your particular model of vehicle it appears that the fuel sending unit is built into the fuel pump, which means that the fuel pump may have to be replaced in order to restore functionality to the gauge. In regards to code P0336, if it persists even after the sensor has been replaced then it may be possible that the issue is related to the sensor's wiring or to the computer.
