Question about Cars & Trucks
Gas gauge has never worked since I've owned truck. Husband runs truck very low on gas a lot. Truck would not start, had a new Fuel Pump installed (but gas gauge still did not work). 90 days later, car would not start. Since pump was under warranty, received a new pump and had it installed. Gas gauge now works, but the truck will not start. Can tap the gas tank sometimes and it starts. Truck also cuts off when idling. Don't know what to do. Advice, suggestions please and thank you!
Has the filter ever been changed? Need to know year and model of the truck. Fuel filters can be near the tank or under the hood. Filters are usually separate from the fuel pump.

It does seem to be a fuel problem, If your engine is fuel injected the fuel pump is in the gas tank. As far as the ground it is grounded through its harness and mounting.. First thing I would do is put a fuel gauge on the fuel rail fitting and check fuel pressures. Pump wil run for a few seconds when the key is turn ON., and then stop ( assuming its working ) A lack of pressure willindicate an inop pump, or even possibly a clog in the fuel filter. Let me know.

check to make sure the wires are all connected at the sending unit,check to make sure you have a good ground.

probaly a fuel pump its common for vehicles to do that the best thing to do next is a fuel pressure check to verifiy its the pump

Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.
