There is no vent line on a 2003 s10. I just fixed this problem on my 2003 s10. Its called the gas tank vent soleniod. Its a little sq box type thing up behind the charcoal cannister, which is behind the tank. Its really easy to change. It has a sensor connection 2 wires which plug into it, and one hose which goes to the charcoal cannister. It costs about $45.00CND. Just be careful with the hose it has a wedge connector. All you need is 2 screw drivers. I am not a mechanic but i do try, and i dont lie.You could take it off and try to clean it, but you have to be able to blow air through if not its screwed. One other quick solution is to just unhook the hose. But your engine light will stay on.When you change it reset the code by just unhooking your battery pos cable for 30 sec's. I hope this helps all the others with this problem. Pretty nasty pumping gas at 25 cents at a time when its 30 below. lol

2003 Chevy S10 had fuel pump replaced. When fuel gauge shows slightly below half, the gauge falls to empty and low fuel lights blinks. What could be causing this?


hi,

sounds like the sending unit rheostat(sending unit) has a bad contact or break in the resistance wire. inside the tank theres a float attached to an arm that goes to a small rheostat, like a volume control on a stereo. the rheostat is sending a scratchy signal or no signal to the computer and your getting these readings. that part is inside the gas tank, the part usually comes integrated with the fuel pump. the gas tank has to be lowered to fix it.

You need to find out if the fuel pump is working, getting gas up to the engine.
If the pump is working and seen to have good fuel pressure, check ignition by checking for spark.. To work, the engine needs, you know, gas, air, spark, and compression. Why people say, check for gas, check for spark.
