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

    my names Bill. and i toohave had the same issue..i replaced poppit injectors,,plugs wires,cap button,fuel pump module..heres what you may want to do..when you replaced your sender,,did you replace the lock ring that holds down the fuel pump module,as well as the ground wire..i used the original lock ring and it was so rusted that it didnt hold the pump module firmly in the tank,,so i used a new one,,cleaned the grounding surface and replace the the cconnecter on the groundwire with a new one!!!!!..WORKING NICELY!!!!.. also if i were you i\'d remove the bed,,its soooooooo much easier that way...there will be 8bed rail bolts,,4 on each side of the bed..and four bolts at the bumper,,two on eachside,,,and a groundwire on each side of the bumper that grounds the tails and backup lights...dont forget to unbolt the fuel filler neck and make sure it doesnt get caught on the bed as you raise the bed or you could damage the tank,,and lastly,,there is a ground wire at the filler neck to the frame,,you will have to unbolt thats ground wire as well,,,just check and recheck everything before you move the bed...i will have to replace my evap,truoble codes says i have a small leak..

Why is my fuel gauge on my 2000 chevy tahoe moving

I think so too. May be sulfur from the fuel on the resister card that the wiper travels over. Try adding some Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner to 1/4 tank of gas and see if it gets better.

Gas gauge not responding 94 chevy s-10 pick up. recent replacement of fuel pump about 1 year ago. can i assume i can continue to drive w/no gauge or does this mean the fuel pump is on its way out? is it...

GM vehicles ,especially trucks it seems have alot of problems with their fuel guage sending units. The sending unit is the most likely reason but it can still be wiring or the guage itself.
Does it function at anytime or is it inoperable all the time ?
Most of the time (but not always) when a sending unit is not working properly it is usually when you have a certain amount of fuel in the tank and when it gets to that level it dont function but any level above or below that level it functions.
If this is your case then I feel comfortable in saying it is the sending unit. If not you need to do further testing to be sure it isn't wiring or a guage problem.
And no this is not a indication that your fuel pump is getting ready to go out. Your best protection to keep that from happening though is regular replacement of your fuel filter.
I hope this helps.

2000 Chevy S-10 pickup will start momentarily but will not continue to run, fuel gauge does not respond to ignition switch.Once you can get the fuel gauge to respond, truck runs great! What the problem?

Check the wire harness from the frame to the gas tank, the connection may be corroded or the wires damaged, That wire harness is around $15.00 at Auto Zone and hope it's not a faulty fuel sending unit. If you think it's a faulty fuel sending unit, Auto Zone can give you the step by set instructions to replacing the unit. Hint: it's easier to replace the fuel sending unit if you remove the bed to get to the top of the gas tank. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Gas Gauge or Sending Unit

more than likely it's the gauge it sets in a circuit board and sometimes the contacts get worn and with vibration it voltage spikes it and then it fails. very seldom is it the sending unit in the tank. please rate this...thanks

The most likely problem is the sender unit in the tank is stuck.
Sender units are relatively cheap and easy to change.
Autozone probably carry them on the shelf.
