    2015 new holland l220 skid steer fuel gage

    Check your ground connections first. Factory didn't clean off the paint for all the grounds, so the sensors may have poor ground connections. You will see where groups of black wires bolt to the frame in some places.

    New Holland C232 oil smell and code 3028
