Gas gauge bounce


usually this is caused by gas moving around in gas tank and causing float to move around which is what controls the gauge reading. Some have a cove around them to prevent this. Alot of times when someone has the fuel pump replaced they have this problem because float was either bent or not placed in tank properly. hope this helps

Fuel gauge


It is not uncommon for GM fuel gauges to bounce up and down while the vehicle is moving. Especially on these older ones. Replacing the gauge or level sensor in the tank would only be a waste of money. It wont be the gauge though to answere your question.

Gauge problems with fuel and oil


It is just as likely that the fuel level sending unit in the tank is bad as it is that the fuel guage in the dash is bad. The guage is MUCH easier and cheaper to change; try that first.

Fuel gauge bouncing on 2000 chevy tahoe where is fuel pump relay


I had previously replaced the failing fuel pump on my '98 K2500 when it went out entirely. I was ready to replace my 2000 K3500's fuel gauge as it was acting up.
When I started the engine, the gauge would bounce from the middle to way past full then back. It would also jump sporadically while driving on level ground.
I checked the electrical connections at the tank and made sure the frame ground strap located nearby was making good contact. Nothing changed until I removed the instrument panel and cleaned the connections on the back. The fuel gauge seems to be operating correctly now.
There are videos on YouTube that show how to remove the instrument cluster if in doubt. Mine dash has a pop-in plastic bezel followed by 4 screws to hold the cluster in place. It took about a half hour to inspect & clean the dash connection vs. $250 to replace the pump/sending unit combo. Hope this helps.

Fuel gauge


The bouncing is cuased by a fault fuel sending unit located in the gas tank. Sometimes you can change just the sender but you'll probably have to get it from your local dealership. Most parts stores will sell the sender only with the fuel pump and it can cost serveral hundred dollars. Either way you have to remove the gas tank to change it. Your gas milage problem can be cuased by a a bad fuel pressure regulator which are known to go bad on those cars.
