Check wiring at tank, sounds like you have broken wire ( open wire ) on the circuit.

SOURCE: 01 s10 gas gauge goes either full or empty

Sounds to be a faulty tank sender unit, these senders use a fine coiled wire on which a brush slides along to vary its resistance.
If the coiled wire breaks midway, the only readings will be full or empty.
I think sender unit is mounted to internal fuel pump on this model (top of fuel tank)
Hope this helps, regards

SOURCE: i have a 2001 chevrolet suburban the gas gauge

The problem lies in the sending unit in the tank. It could have a wiring problem or the sending unit is bad.

I have a 2000 3.8 impala that wont take gas and the gas gauge stays full.


Wont take gas and the gas gauge stays full? This question really doesn't make sense. But if you cant put anymore gas in the car and the gauge says full then you have a full tank of gas. If the gauge always says full even when the gas tank is not full then the sender unit is failing or the gauge itself.

sounds like you have a restriction in the fuel inlet pipe,( maybe air locking) also your tank sender unit neads replacing to fix you gauge fault, or it maybe that it has something that is not alowingf it to move freely inside the tank, have a good look inside when low on fuel. through the hole where the sender is fitted.

Gas gauge stays on full


very common. The sender in the gas tank is the problem.
It will need to be replaced some day
Both my gas tanks do the same thing in my F250. 1 tank stays full all the time and the other drops from full to about a half tank when I get to half a tank and then works so so till empty.
