Most probably if you take out your gas pump/sending unit assembly out of your fuel tank you will find a broken fuel hose on the assembly. The actual pump rests in the bottom of the tank with hoses running to the top of the pump / sending unit assembly. It is probably broken around the 1/2 tank mark. When fuel level is higher than the break in the hose, everything runs fine, but once fuel level reaches under the break, the pump starts pushing fuel out of the break back into the tank and the engine does not recieve enough fuel pressure to run.

My truck idils at 2000 when i crank it then after it warms up it idils up and down


Fuel injectors are dirty or you've got a tank full of watery or bad fuel. Buy a bottle of fuel injector cleaner and put that into empty tank then fill up with premium gas. She'll be giddying-up in no time.

Fill up gas tank gauge goes to full as I use gas the gauge goes down to 1/4 tank but no lower I have ran out of gas because i thougght i Had A 1/4 tank of gas


Replace the sending unit. It is attached to the pump in the fuel tank. Your better off replacing both together, since you will need to drop the tank. Run it near empty first so the tank is lighter.(TIP: only buy the pump from a Chevy Dealer, after market pumps don't last as long. So it's cheaper to buy ONE that costs a little more, than TWO that cost almost as much.) If you take it to a Mechanic or the dealer, bring in the neighborhood of $700.00. If you do it yourself it will take you a day to do the job.

I want to SeaFoam my 2000 Chevy Silverado, How much SeaFoam goes in the gas tank and ind the brake hose or oil tank?


I have been using sea foam for years. A little goes a long way. I usually use a couple of cap fulls at fill up. The same goes for the oil when changing it. I don't use sea foam for the brake system. Only DOT3 brake fluid from a sealed container unless otherwise specified.

2000 CHEVY S-10 FULL TANK OF GAS ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AT HALF TANK LIGHT GOES OUT WHY?


You may be overfilling the tank. The fuel tank is connected to a vapor recovery system. If you over fill it it will be drawn into the recovery system and kick the engine light on. By the time you have run a half a tank of fuel thru it, it has cleared. Try stopping the fuel fill when the nozzle kicks off and not trying to get that extra 2 dollars worth in it and see if the helps.

It is sludge and water in the tank. When you fill it water goes to the bottem of the tank and the good fuel goes on top where the fuel pump is.

Chevy Trucks, Blazers, S10 pickup and the like will vapor lock ecspecially the 2000 models. Do not tighten the gas cap past 1 click. There is a tube that runs from the top of the tank down and this gets hot and collapses or burns in half. We just bought a reinforced rubber tube cut it to lengh and use it instead of part and it's worked grat for 2 years so far.
