Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette
Sending unit gas gauge in the gas tank has gone bad and will need to be replaced. The gas gauge wire is grounding out causing you to have full full indicated and when there is no ground you get empty signal.
This is caused by the gauge in the tank having a bad spot on the float, which is common from wear and tear. Also if your lucky, it may just be the wire harness from the gas tank to the frame might be the issue and will need to be replaced. It worst, it's going to be the sending unit it self.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck
