1999 gmc yukon gas gauge is slightly flickering

So i got gas the other day and drove around. I came back and started the engine and the gauge went way past full flickered back to what should be the right amount but the needle is now flickering ever so slightly looking like a small blurr. I have replaced fuse but still flickers slightly and reason why?

    i noticed this too, when starting my yukon the gas gauge spins all the way around and begins to flicker when the level gets lower. all my trucks at work are mid to late 90's gmc sierras and a good portion of them do the flickering gauge as well.

    Mine started doing this at my last fill up. Little things have been going out left and right in the past 6 months. My right rear window defrost quit, 6 lights in the raido went out, the door doesn't unlock with the remote, the electric brake/blinker light panel burned out. power stearing fluid leaks from a vac line, cad converter needs to be replaced, lights on 2 - 4 wl drive flash in and out, and breaks grab first few times used at startup. I have 130,000 mls.

My 03 gmc yukon has sat for a day i went to get something out my truck and it smelled like gas inside

Cycle the key on and off or simply start your vehicle for a moment and check for any gas leaks. Because your vehicle is a GM, the lines tend to rot away along the frame right where the plastic clips are that hold it in place. Start from the engine and work your way back. I'm sure your find a bad section on steel line. Also check to see if you have a cabin filter and replace as well. I hope this helps you. Good luck

I replaced my water pump in my 1999 gmc yukon my check gauge light stayed on and temp gauge stayed over to hot side. can i reset it?

Not exactly.
The check gauge warning light is on because the temp gauge is reading hot.
Does the temp gauge read hot as soon as you turn the key switch on, or not until the engine as run for a few minutes ?
If it reads hot without the engine being started, there may be a short in the wiring or the sensor may have failed.

Starter kick back

If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...

Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !

If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.

Good luck !
