My gas gauge does not work on my 2000 olds silhoutee, it jumps up and down. What does this mean?

Your problem is in the fuel pressure sending unit. It senses the level of the gas with floats on the fuel pump and the sensor on the sending unit (on the ring @ the top of the fuel tank) sends a signal to the computer in the van telling you how much gas you have by showing it on the gauge. Unfortunately you will have to change the whole sending unit.

My 2008 chevy malibu fuel gauge dose not read only some times when its a full tank the gauge is dead but about 1/4 tank it reads but gos in and out ?

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.

First disconnect and remove the battery.
Then, remove gas cap to release pressure. Than remove fuel lines and drain gas into suitable container. Next, loosen the bolts (you can use a tranny jack or have someone else help hold tank and lower it down.
Now you will want to use a BRASS punch. (do NOT use metal or it will cause a spark)
Use brass punch and hammer and loosen nut on tank counter-clockwise to loosen sending unit.
Once nut is loose, pull out sending unit and unplug the wire harness.
