Question about 1984 Chevrolet Chevy
On our 84 Chev Silverado there is a switch on the dash that switches between the saddle tanks. It will not switch. Is this a fuse issue?
check the inertia (fuel cut off) switch 1st- it's either in the kick plate on the pass. front or in the trunk. seen a few of them go, have someone hold the button dow while you start the car.

take the wire off that goes to the tank and ground it. if the Gage moves then it is the float if the Gage stays there then it is the Gage.

Evap vent solenoide is stuck closed. Start by replacing the valve and checking the hose to the valve for clogs...this is located between the cab of the truck and the bed of the truck on the driver side (can be seen if you look down through the crack)....If this doesn't work then check the fuel filler neck hose for kink or restriction this is the hose that goes from the gas cap to the fuel tank.

The fuel gauge sending unit which sends a signal to the gauge is stuck or defective. It’s in the fuel tank.
Buy 2 containers of Chevron Techron at Wal-Mart and add to the fuel tank. Sulfur deposits build up on the sending unit. I own a Corvette and many of us owners have had to add the Techron to cure the fuel gauge problem.
If that doesn’t take care of it, more than likely the fuel level sending unit has gone bad, it is inside the tank and is a variable resistor connected to a float. Chevy and GMC trucks in the 99-2003 era have had a bad problem with this. The sending unit can be replaced apart from the pump but this is not a job for a beginner.
It’s best to replace pump and sending unit at the same time. If you only replace sending unit, pump will usually fail soon after that creating extra expense
