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

2000 Chevy Monte Carlo fuel gauge always reads full, unless the engine is running and in neutral. What repair parts are needed and how much time for a mechanic to fix it?


First you will need to test your information display located above the rear view mirror. The easiest way to see if it is accurate is the next time you need gas, fill the tank up! Your car holds 17 gallons of fuel, the display should read 17 gallons after a fill up. If it displays anything other than the 17 gallon amount, then your fuel level sensor is bad. If it appears to be consistent with the 17 gallon reading, keep your eye on it for several miles and after a couple of times that you restart your vehicle to be sure that it is in fact reading correctly. If you are convinced that information is consistent with the actual data, then it's much worse......It needs a new fuel pump! Good luck!

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.

Gas gauge reads full when underway. However, when


Most likely it a bad fuel level sensor on you fuel pump. You will have to replace the fuel pump as that is the only way to replace the sensor for you fuel gauge. The sensor is built into the fuel pump. The contacts on the sensor become corroded over time and cause the sensor to malfunction causing your fuel gauge to read full all the time. I have a 2001 Montana extended version that had the same problem. In order to know when I needed to fill the tank, I would completely fill it each time I put fuel in and reset my trip odometer. I would go 400 miles on the tank before I would refuel until we were able to replace the fuel pump.

I have a 2000 Chevy 3500 box truck with 2 gas tanks. The gas guage only goes to 1/2 with both tanks full and it won't pump gas from the second tank. How do I fix this.


Fuel levels are equaled in the tanks via a frame mounted transfer pump that transfers fuel from the rear tank to the front tank where the main pump is. Your transfer pump needs replaced, and should run about 60 bucks. Should find the pump mounted to the frame between tanks.

Fuel gauge erratic


you will need to have the cluster (guages) repaired or replaced. (for the vibration). You will need to do this first.

They also have problems with the fuel level sensor in the tank, the contacts corrode and will give false readings. BUT this will not cause the guage to vibrate as you have described.
