I HAVE A 2000 CHEVY SILVERADO WITH A 5.3L. THE FUEL GAUGE WORKS SOME TIME AND SOME TIME NOT. SEEMS WHEN I FIRST START IT UP IT WONT WORK TILL I START DRIVING AND AFTER IT HAS BEEN DRIVEN FOR AWHILE IT WORKS GREAT. UNTILL I STOP AND PUT IT IN PARK OR SHUT IT OFF. AND THEN WHEN I TURN IT ON IT WONT WORK AGAIN UNTIL I START TO DRIVE AGAIN. IT ALSO SEEMED TO STOP WORKING AFTER I HIT A BIG BUMP BUT ONLY SOME TIMES. NEED HELP HERE.
The problem is in the tank.The sending unit float gauge is worn.Its a factory GM issue.You will Need to replace the sending unit in the tank.I had the same problem and thats what I found.Its real common and this will solve your problem..Its 67.00 Dollars on Ebay..

Two possible causes ... the sending unit relay needs to be changed... or you have a bad ground or connection on the guage... which may require dropping the tank to fix... if you can get it up on a lift see if the wires are accessable from under the car.

There is a Sending unit for the Speedometer Under the Dash or on the Sterring Column. It is not Cheap, Last I heard it was 475.00 for a New one. There is Also a Speed Sensor that is Supposed to be on the Transmission that could cause the Same Problem. I have never Replaced these But have Read about them on here quite a Few Times. You could go to your Library and Check out a Haynes or Chilton Repair Manual for your Truck and Locate the Exact Locations. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!
