This could be a bad ground at the tank. sometimes rust builds around the connector and prevents the gauge from making ground. the tank might have to be lowered to fix the problem.

Mine did that too, at only 30,000 miles. Was $1,000 to fix, because everything around it would have to be replaced, better off just keeping track with the digital fuel usage if you have the trip computer option in your jimmy. When you have a leak in your tank or bad fuel pump (which I finally had at 140,000 miles), is when you should get it fixed.

Gas gauge works sometime but always shows full


Sometimes you can use resistors, a couple of different sizes, see if gage reacts properly to resistors, if it does, the problem is the sending unit in gas tank.

Fuel gauge stays on full


Sounds like you have a bad sending unit in your gas tank. You will need to take it to a mechanic to get checked. This isn't really a do it yourself type repair since it involves removing the gas tank.

Gas gauge always reads full, and then bounces from full to empty


This problem is only caused by one thing, and that is the gas gauge sending unit inside the gas tank is defective, it will need to be replaced to correct this. The gas tank must be removed from the truck to access the sender assembly.
