Question about Cars & Trucks

Most likely the sending unit in the tank is bad. Most units drop the gauge to empty though. I would check voltage and continuity of the wire first. You can access the fuel fuel from the front passenger side of the tank, you have to remove the instrument panel to get access to the other end of the wires to be checked.

this is caused by a defective gas gage sending unit, the sending unit is part of the fuel pump module inside the gas tank, the gas tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump module that also contains the sending unit.

Had the exact same issue with my 07 malibu...took it to a trusted mechanic and it ended up being a bad communication module...module was about 650 and the total was about 800...that resolved my issue.
