2005 chevy cavalier gas gauge doesnt work goes into the temp gauge and when i try to put gas in it spills out like it is full.


It sounds like the fuel gauge sender unit is faulty, probably causing a wiring problem with other dash dials. Also sounds like you already full of fuel. The float and sender unit need checking and/or replacing.
(float in fuel tank). The fuel tank needs to be drained completely to do this work. Is it something you can do ? If not, it's not a major operation for a mechanic and the parts are cheap. Good luck... Red.

Fill up gas tank gauge goes to full as I use gas the gauge goes down to 1/4 tank but no lower I have ran out of gas because i thought i Had A 1/4 tank of gas this is on a 2005 silverado


Sounds like the float in the tank is faulty, or the gauge on the dash.
You should be able to unplug the circuit to the sending unit and check both components.

1989 silverado gas gauge shows full even when cluster removed from dash.


The sending unit in the tank provides a ground to the gauge depending on the float level. The gauge can "rest" anywhere if the power and ground circuits are not connected.
You would need to know if the gauge has power and is getting a ground signal from the tank.

Gas hand reads full all the time


Fuel gauge may be the problem, but may also be a short in wires going to fuel gauge
Battery power goes to gauge in dash then to resistor in tank to ground. If the wire going to tank is shorted to frame it will always read full. Test this by disconnecting the wire going to the tank. If it goes to empty then you know the reason, either resistor in tank is bad or wire shorted.
