The fuel tank sender module is probably broken inside the tank.

When tank is below 1/2 full the car is hard to start and when driving it seems to lose power. My check engine light does not come on.


the problem maybe a problem with fuel pickup at 1/2 tank, if the line has blockage, the filter is clocked up, the leveling or device that keeps track of fuel level is defective, there issue with the floater, the part that suppose to float has or full of fuel and when it gets to 1/2 tank, the floater full of fuel and sinks like your out of gas.
i think most likely clogged fuel filter in the fuel tank if your car has this type of system.
if not the fuel filter most of the time its near intake of the injectors, underneath the drivers seat under the car.
or by the inlet and outlet of the fuel tank.

2000 blazer will not start with less than 1/2 full of gas


i am not 100% sure the fuel pump is located on the top 1/2 of the tank so it need about 3/4 tank of fuel to breath.

Chevy s 10 pickup will not crack , possible


first off - there can be other factors - long before the fuel pump - - how about the filter? if u spray fuel into the intake does it run for a few seconds or at least 'fire off' showing it wants to run but needs fuel? Also check ur spark before u go that far - as to the tank -much easier to remove the tank - EMPTY -- get a friend -as it is gas and once it goes - it will kill u quick - - and put a jack under the tank - remove the bolts - lower it just a little bit - then remove the lines - there are special lines so check with the dealer - free advice they are good for too - - also take down the VIN number and check for a recall - might be a free repair -

Front axle differential on 2000 chevy silverado leaking oil out of vent .the differential is not overfilled.


Your pickup leaks just like everyone elses. what you need to do is go down to your local parts store and get an inline fuel filter (your local chevy dealer should also have these available just for this problem), preferably see thru then, where your vent runs up the inner fender cut the line about 4 inches down from the vent and install the filter. this will cure your problem

Gas meter does not work.


no fluid on ground right?then it must be your float on your fuel pump.drain gas from tank and take both ''straps'' off.remove both fuel lines.be carefull some gas is still in lines.on the top of tank there will be a wire connector.unplug it,remove tank from under car.remove bolts on the fuel pump.you might be able to buy float sepertly.if not you might have to buy the it as one unit.

Fuel sending unit in a 2000 chevy s-10 pickup


You must replace the sending unit in the gas tank to correct this problem, or do you already know this?

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.

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.
