We had to pull the gas tank off to replace our fuel pump, filters and screens. Along with it my gas sending unit up and quit and I drove for several months without it working until we pulled the tank off. We got our at a pick-a-part junk yard to replace it. It works great now. How I did not know what I was so missing :-)

My gas guage is not holding actual fuel level, its a 2002 GMC Yukon. Goes from empty to full within seconds and the tank is full.

Typical gm problem, the float assembly or a ground wire, Ive always run across it being the float which can be bought through the dealer seperately than the whole pump w float assembly.

My gas gauge goes from empty to full within 5 seconds, and it will show low gas when there is half tank or more..

Replace the sending unit in the tank. You don't have to replace the whole pump assembly, You can buy just the gauge sender from the dealer.
