Question about Chevrolet Suburban 2500

1 Answer

Not entirely sure it's the fuel sensor, but my '94 chevy suburban will stall when the fuel gauge reaches about halfway. No fuel leakage is detected but it will fail to start after the gauge reaches half empty. My question is; will a faulty fuel sensor really stall a vehicle?

No the sensor wont but i suspect a problem in the fuel delivery lines in the tank, either loose or cracked line allowing air into the fuel, easiest way to check is to replace the fuel line with a short piece of clear line and check for bubbles in the fuel

Fuel gauge not woking on 94 suburban

This problem is caused by a defective fuel level sensor, the sensor is located inside the fuel tank. To replace the sensor you must remove the fuel tank from the truck.

1999 Chevy Suburban 5.7 V8 Starts fine will run smooth, but will not take fast throttle. If stomp the gas it will die and pop. It will reach interstate speeds and run smoothly if only minimum throttle...

ok here we go, hook up a feul pressure guage that can be read from inside the car, and check fuel pressure while driving, if the pressure stays fairly constant then the best bet is to hook up a real time scanner with snapshot capabilities ( like snap on or bdm pro) and take it for a drive again, ti could be a sensor reading out of range but not enough to set a code

I changed plugs a wires fuel filter an fuel pressure relgator but still dont idle or run right 2001 chevy suburban

Your problem is most likely a sensor problem. Did you get a check engine light? It could also be a fuel pump. These vehicles are verry sensitive to even slightly low fuel pressure. Once the pump starts to get tired they just start running crappy followed by stalling and hard starting. Id start testing cheap stuff first. Like the O2 sensor. If it has been a while or never changed then it needs changed. Should be changed every other year or so to keep it working in tip top shape. cheap O2 sensors may have to be replaced more often like once every year. Next I would look at the MAF sensor. These often get a bit dirty inside and affects the ability for it to detect the proper amount of air. Clean it with a MAF safe cleaner and it just might do the trick.

Gas gage fluctuates once it reaches 1/2 tank. 1999 chevy surburban. what is the best fix

I think that the problem mainly lies in the Fuel Sending Unit. Check that its Fuel Level Sensor is all right and is the latest model. I am telling this because if it is not the new one, it can cause corrosion in the sensor and cause shaking and fluctuation of the Gas and Fuel Gauge. I think you can get it.
Thank you Sir, have a nice day.

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.
