2002 Chevy Cavalier, Fuel gauge does not read properly

My 2002 chevy cavalier (90,000 miles) has had problems with the fuel gauge. It always readys full and sometimes my "Check Gauges''' light comes on and my fuel meter starts dropping. It used to happen to me alot when i would buy gas from any place but, no from QT. However. I put a full tank in my car from QT and then hauled it on a trailer 160 miles and its did the same thing as before. What is the cause of this problem, how do I fix it, and how much will it cost to get it fixed?

The float is sticking in the fuel tank.Could be expensive if the float is part of the fuel pump.

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.
