Gas gage not working

Maybe a problem with instrument cluster?
Usually the circuit works off resistance to ground. The sending unit in gas tank provides resistance to ground. The signal wire for fuel gage is a purple wire, if goes to fuel pump wiring connector. With key on, use digital multimeter, check for voltage. If no voltage, either problem with wiring circuit or instrument cluster. W/0 looking at instrument cluster, I don't know if you can replace gage itself w/o replacing instrument cluster?

If voltage on the purple wire, ground it, while a helper watches the gage, if the gage starts reacting, then check the grounds for fuel pump wiring connector, if that checks ok, suspect the fuel pump sending unit has a problem.

1996 chevy 4.3 v6 fuel pump keeps going out

If you have a Vortec V6 these engines require 60psi or more of fuel pressure to run. Some aftermarket fuel pumps are not up to the task.
Also, you did not say anything about changing the filter each time you changed the pump.
The symptom reflects a low pressure problem.
You need a gauge to check pressure when the new pump is installed and when the problem occurs.

It will crank but does not start i changed the fuel filter and still it will not start i have a 1998 v6 chevy s10 pickup

Check to make sure it is getting fire. You can also hook a pressure gage to the fuel check valve should be near the fuel rail to see if you are getting a good constant fuel pressure. usually fuel problems will let the truck start but not stay running unless you are getting no fuel at all if thats the case it usually means your fuel punp is not working. with your key turned on your fuel pump should be running you can just bleed the check valve to see if you are getting any fuel pressure at all if you are getting none check the fuses and see if you are getting any power to the fuel pump if the fuse is blown then you can try to replace it if it blows again the fuel pump is bad or you have a short somewhere most likely.

No fuel to the injectors on a 1997 Chevy c1500.

can be the distributor or maybe the fuel pump let the truck sit and then turn key almost on but not enough to initiate start up and see if you hear pump in the gas tank and if thats not it, it could very well be your distributor it might  be moist in the cap or button area

1997 Chevy s10 Pick up fuel gauge

The most likely problem is the sender unit in the tank is stuck.
Sender units are relatively cheap and easy to change.
Autozone probably carry them on the shelf.
