These and several other chevy models suffer from same problem you will need to contact dealer with your vin# to see if you can just buy fuel level sending unit seperate on alot of these the sending unit can only be gotten as a whole fuel pump module assembly @ around $450.00 to 500.00 as for replacing you will need to drain tank support with floor jack and lower tank slightly to gain access to the fuel lines and electrical connector unhook those and lower tank loosen the ring securing pump unit in tank and remove. hope this helps

Mazda 2008 tribute, fuel gauge not reading correctly. Replaced the fuel pump and no change. Any ideas?


If the signal from the sending unit is correct, the problem would be in the gauge on the dash.

Took my car in because of a gas leak and gasgauge that reads FULL all the time.. mechanic replaced the fuel pump but can't get the gas gauge to not read FULL. What to do?


If he told you the fuel pump would correct the fuel guage, take the car back and make them fix it under warranty. I have been in the auto repair business for 21 years and if I mis-diagnose a car, I have to fix it for free to keep the customer happy.

Gas gauge goes up and down when I get out of car when i am sitting in car the gauge reads full even though it is not full then on hills and just sitting at a stop light it goes to empty for no reason


You most likely have a failing fuel level sending unit which is located inside the fuel tank. The sender wears a bit as the float arm moves up and down with normal fuel level variations and this wear can result in a guage that reads erratically. Many of the fuel level senders are now only sold as a part of the fuel pump module so if it turns out that it is indeed the sender you may have to replace the entire pump module. Hope this helps!

2000 Buick Century gas gauge reads full all the time


You're either looking at a short in the wire that goes to the fuel sender, or a bad fuel sender. If it was just a broken wire, it would read empty instead. The fuel sender is a permanent part of the fuel pump, so that has to be replaced as a unit.
