Sending unit on the fuel pump in the tank is stuck, and needs to be replaced. its expensive, but that will fix your issue. its the housing around the pump that has the float arm on it. you can try to free the float arm by removing your pump assembly, but cant guarantee its any good after being stuck

Check your fuel pressure and check the code. Could be a TPS Throttle Position Sensor.

#9 fuse keeps blowing. Not a problem during daylite hours, but they want you to have taillights at nite. Turn signals and brakes okay. Have taken doors apart,disassembled the dash,followed parking light...


Had this problem on my 1995 K1500. Take your front blinkers out and see if the wires are rubbing on the frame causing it to short out. Took me 4 months to figure this out.

I have a 1991 chevy 1500 ext cab with a 350 motor


Check engine light on? Does it run normal driving it? Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check the gasket under the throttle body.

Faulty gas gauge


Have a 2001 chev and it does the same thing. It is a common problem. It is a faulty in tank sender, not the fuel pump. You can just replace the sending unit by removing tank. If you want more information please get back to me.
