SOURCE: 1999 Monte Carlo fuel gauge stopped working

Hi there. If the fuel gauge is the only one acting up, its probably a loose or corroded wire on top of the gas tank where the fuel pump sets in. It could also be a loose wire on the back of the gauge, which is easier to get to so you could always check that first by popping off the dash pannel and pulling out the instrument cluster and looking for a broke wire on the back of the fuel gauge. But if I had to bet I would guess its on the other end by the fuel pump. Worse case sinario, maybe a bad sending unit.

SOURCE: My 97 Chevy Malibu won't stay running.

there are two components that you should be looking at one is called a throttle position sensor and the other is a idle air control motor/valve.these two will make the car hard star or not start at all.the are both located in the general area of the intake manifold right where the throttle cable connects.

My 1968 chevy impala wont start unless i push gas pedal to the floor


it is your carburetor the fuel float is set to high and probably leaks. If it older than 10yrs old and has never been rebuilt . do that if you want to save yourself a bunch of time and little more money make the investment of a Brand New not rebuilt. if you get the carb manufactor specs matched to your motor , Out of the box, it will be very close to being on the money .

My 2006 chevy uplander just died on the highway, not the battery , not out of gas. eventually restarted and died 3 more times. what could be causing this?


This engine is fully electronically controlled so the very first thing that must be done is to have a shop scan the systems control module for fault codes and then based on these codes perform diagnostics.

I ran my 2006 chevy uplander out of gas now it wont start even using starter fluid


after putting some gas in your tank, step on the gas pedal repeatedly (step to it fully), then while pressing, start your car. the fuel was completely drained from your system thus there are no fuel to burn in able for your car to start.

pressing the gas pedal repeatedly (around 10 times will do) will put some fuel in your combustion chamber, so the car will now have something to burn if you will start the car

I have to hit the gas to start my 2006 chevy uplander but once it starts it is fine, could this be a fuel pup problem if i dont hit the gas it will just turn over or it will start and die


I am a gm dealership tech, and also own one of these. My vehicle has the exact same problem. Cleaning, or having the throttle body cleaned well seems to help alot. I just rest my foot on the gas pedal alittle when I start it most times just kinda became habit. Unfortunately we have not found a real permanent fix as of yet.

Chevy uplander ran out of gas and now it won't start


I had a similar issue with my uplander. They don't have a reset switch on the pump but if the vehicle is CLOSE to running out of gas and you happen to park on a grade where the front of the vehicle is pointing down then you may have trouble starting the vehicle until it level's out.

All I did was apply some gas pedal while starting and it started. Then I got to a gas station ASAP. If you're right out of gas you may want to add some to the tank and let the vehicle sit in the ignition on position without starting it for a minute or two to get some fuel back in the lines before starting it.
