    I have an 04 Yukon XL with the same problem. When I first start the engine, the gauge does it's "calibration thing" but doesn't go back to "empty" to start the calibration. So each time I restart, the needle moves further clockwise.



    The sending unit is still sending a good signal (my mileage range is where it should be) just the needle is pointing the wrong direction.



    This just happened with the onset of cold temperatures & I wonder if the gauge got stuck which threw the calibration off?

My 2000 Chevy s15 Rpm and Gas Gauge is not working


I didn't see an s15 in that model year, in my database?
If the speedometer works but the tach doesn't, I think something is wrong with instrument cluster?
GM has had a problem with fuel gage sending units. The sending units are not hard wired to instrument cluster, they send signal to pcm, the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster, telling the cluster the gage settings.
It may be possible to use different size resistors in place of the fuel level sending unit, to see if fuel gage reacts properly to different resistors, if the gage reacts properly, then I think the problem is the fuel gage sending unit.

2001 gmc sierra stalls when I stop


When your stopped, that is usually closed throttle. I'd want to check and clean anything that has to do with idle air system, where applicable.
Sometimes with fuel gages, I do testing by using a couple of resistors representing full and empty. If your gage reacts properly, the problem should be the sending unit in the gas tank.

Fuel gauge is moving slowly to full


I'd use a couple of resistors representing full and empty. Take connector loose from fuel level sending unit at gas tank, two wires, use resistor between the proper two wires, turn key just to on, you shouldn't have to start it. If gage reacts properly to both resistors, I believe the problem is the sending unit in the gas tank. If it still doesn't function properly, have to check wiring circuits and instrument cluster. The resistor ohms, 16 ohm--and 158 ohms. These are just generic specs.
Some ford instrument clusters can do a self test. The only problem I have is, I don't which years this applies.
With the engine off, depress and hold the odometer reset button. Turn the key to the run position and hold until the gages sweep, within 5--8 seconds. Depress the reset button once to advance to each stage of the self test. Turn the ignition to the off position to exit self test. This test is w/o outside input, so if all gages sweep except the fuel gage, I suspect the instrument cluster has a problem. I'm not sure if your instrument cluster has the self test ability?

1997 Dodge Ram 1500 is losing oil pressure, stalling at idle, and sudden stops. Have replaced oil, plugs, and recently had a new muffler from the manafold back installed. Truck will be running fine at some...


clean or replace idle air control valve located on the throttle body, this is the valve that adjusts the ammount of air allowed into the engine to adjust fuel mixture. If you change it clean the throttle plate of all the carbon build up

I have a 1991 chevy 1500 ext cab with a 350 motor


Check engine light on? Does it run normal driving it? Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check the gasket under the throttle body.

Chevy silerado 1500 350 v-8 where do


On the low pressure side of your system. The high pressure is by the battery on the aluminum tube hooked up to the radiator. Not that one!! But the other aluminum tube hooked up to your firewall going into the cab. Both of em looks alike. Is a quick coupler fitting with a black cap on it.

2001 chevy silverado 4.8 gas gauge not working properly


Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.
