    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?

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.
