2001 Chevy Impala gas guage incorrect

Hello,

My gas guage is funny, when I fill up my tank, it will show a full tank, and after a few miles, the gas guage will shift to E and my low fuel light will come on and tell me I have low fuel.

I watch my miles and in the winter get around 290 to 300 miles per tank, and in the summer time, on a good week I can get 400 miles to a tank of gas!!!

I'm selling my car, and I don't want to leave someone stuck with that problem, since my fuel level fluctuates, and tells me I'm Full or Empty, I would assume it's not a fuze.

Anyone have any advice? Also, have a cost?

The level sensor is bad. They are easy to do. You don't have to pull the fuel tank down. There is an acsess hole in the trunk. Look in the rear of the trunk at the rear of the seats. You will notice there is a spot in the middle that the capet comes together, Pull them apart and there is metal plate with some 10mm nuts, pull that off and your fuel pump is there, remove and replace the sensor.
Also there will the a code in the pcm. you will need to clear it to pass emissions

My 2002 does that too & a local mechanic says that you have to replace the $350 fuel pump in order to fix it.. Hope this helps!

This could be due to a faulty fuel sensor in the fuel tank try draining the fuel tank and replacing the sensor.

sokol520--Sounds like fuel pump/fuel guage sending unit. They are integrated and located inside the fuel tank, most likely.

Cant put much gas in tank w/o it coming back out


It souds like the air return line from the fuel filler pipe is plugged. When you fill up the car the air has to escape from the tank or else the fuel backs up into the filler neck shutting off the fuel nozzle. The air pipe is housed in the fuel filler pipe and lets the air escape as the fuel is going into the tank. Remove the filler neck and inspect air bypass line to see if it is kinked or plugged.
