This is an Issue with G.M late model cars and P.U.
Take the 2 screws loose that hold the plexiglas cover reach in with hand or wire and pull the Gas Gauge pointer to mid range;
There is another option drill small hole thru the glass cover and use a wire to position Pointer;

The Gas Gauge is fed by a Circut Board; no wires
I did a 99 olds Alero,time 30 min - cost 0;
The Auto Forms is a Good place to troubleshoot , and ask questions;
There are a lot of People giving

I need to find where i would fill the transmission fluid for my 1986 gmc sierra 4x4 pickup?


It is a pain in the rear... But the fill is the same tube that the dip stick goes in. You have to have a short funnel. One of the paper funnels that you can get at gas stations work pretty well.

I hope that this helps you! If so please click four thumbs up! Thanks for using Fixya.com

Good Evening, a cost effective solution (free) is available at most of your local parts stores where they will check your battery and charging system for free (Which is where i would start) As far as your fob I would try replacing the batteries since some gm's have 2 in there and see how that works. Hope this helps, been there before and its not fun.
Thanks,

The black dust is from your brake pads, there is no solution only to keep on cleaning. I am in the same position with my car, every 3 to 4 days out with the brush.

Filling fuel tank on my 2005 impala is painfully slow


ONE THING YOU CAN CHECK IS THE SCREEN INSIDE THE FILL NECK BUT YOU MUST REMOVE THE TUBE THAT IS ON THE TANK. THERE IS A STRAINER ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TUBE THAT NOT ONLY PREVENTS SIPHONING OF THE FUEL BUT KEEPS DIRT AND LARGER PARTICLES FROM REACHING THE INSIDE OF THE TANK. IF THIS IS CLOGGED IT MAY HAVE BEEN VANDALS OR EVEN SMALL CHILDREN AT PLAY. IF THE CLAMP THAT HOLD THE NECK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK IS THE CRIMP-ON TYPE THEN CAREFULLY CUT IT OFF THEN REPLACE WITH A STAINLESS ONE THAT CAN BE REUSED. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. VERY CURIOUS TO KNOW. BUT EMISSIONWIZ KNOWS HIS STUFF SO I MAY BE WAY OFF. GOOD LUCK

Blower problem


I am going to take an educated guess and say, that your "check engine light" is for the EVAP system, codes like P1448 (vent control valve) is stuck shut not allowing the vapors to escape while you are filling up, shutting the pump off. Let me know what the code number is and we will take it from there.

Transmission


There are 2 plugs in the transmission oil pan. 1 drain and 1 fill one is higher than the other one the higher one is the fill. you have to have it running in park, take the upper plug out, fill the trans up with a small hand pump through that hole untill it the trans fluid out that hole. . if you drained the trans already you can top it off before starting. keep it in park with the parking brake on so you dont run your self over. it would be ok to run it through the gears once its full and see if you need to top it off again.
its a pain, and messy. have a drain pan there some rags. and gloves. if you want to change the filter you will have to drop the pan.
