It's most likely the float. Which I believe is a separate replaceable part of the fuel level sending unit.

Yes all that good stuff is part of the fuel pump aperture inside the gas tank. If you grab a repair manual from the library you can verify this as well as access repair instructions.

A typical fuel pump. This one is from a 2002 Ford Focus

Sending unit detail

There you go. But a repair manual will still be necessary for diagnosis/replacement procedures.

Holler back if you've got anymore questions.
