Oh boy. You are in for some fun. First, drain as much fuel as you can. disconnect everything you can get to, use a good board on a floor jack, unhook all filler lines, wires, fuel lines. Remove mounting bolts and slowly lower jack, working filler loose and when possible disconnect fuel pump and sender wires. Remember, an empty tank is more dangerous than a full one. Use only battery powered flashlights and mop up spills quickly. If you are replacing the fuel pump, use a piece of hard wood to knock the retainer ring from the pump. BTW, many parts store pumps SUCK. Use only a Delphi, or better still, a dealer pump. You don't want to do this twice, right?

Fuel guage does not work 1999 Chevy Tahoe

the 100% for sure cause of this problem is the sending unit for the fuel guage, it is located in the gas tank. U may have to replace the fuel pump module to get the sending unit, as a rule they are one piece, if u have over 100,000 miles that is a good idea anyway.
