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.

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 thought i Had A 1/4 tank of gas this is on a 2005 silverado


Sounds like the float in the tank is faulty, or the gauge on the dash.
You should be able to unplug the circuit to the sending unit and check both components.

YES. But dont overfill it. Slowly add coolant to the low full line and let it run a while, like 10 minutes. if the level goes down fill it to the full line. After it cools for 30 minutes recheck the level and add as needed.

Under 1/2 tank, truck boggs down when step on gas


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.
