SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Suburban: Fuel gauge reads empty, tank is half full

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

Fuel gauge reads empty


most fuel gauges will tell you you are empty when the is only 25 to 50 miles of fuel left. if it stops after filling with gas then you are ok, just don't let it go below a 1/4 tank. If it always reads empty the the problem is probably the float in the tank needs to be replaced. You will need to have a mechanic replace it. check several places for costs.

2002 monte carlo fuel gauge doesnt work,pump works ok.


It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.

Fuel gauge peggs out


Mostly likely you have a tank mounted fuel gauge. If your vehicle is pointing down hill the guage goes up or down. It is usually the fuel level in the tank that makes the float go up to tell you how full the tank is, if fuel is sloshing around then level fluctuates. I would say that if it stabilizes on level ground and at a stop, and you can get a stable fuel reading then this is more of an annoyance than a problem. If you can get an accurate reading and you do not run out of fuel you may want to leave this one alone, you will have to drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel float on top of the gas tank which can be labor intensive as well as expensive.
