You'll have to drop the tank to find out, it could be the filler hose or one of the hoses connected to the fuel sender assembly. Another possiblity is if you mounted something in the bed section with self tapping screws you may have punctured the tank.

My avalanche is leeking gas from the top of tank. what causes this

Probably either a leak in the gas lines or connectors at the top of the tank, or gas leaking past the pump/sending unit gasket there.

Ran out of gas, car wouldn't crank replaced fuel pump, fuel relay, and in line fuel filter and still won't crank on 2002 chevy avalanche

still won't crank ? how's your battery ? starter ? starter solonoid ? if your engine does'nt crank , its dead ! would'nt you check the battery first ? then move on with checking the starter circuit ? seems like your putting the cart before the horse ! first of all, when you run out of gas, you need to replace the FUEL FILTER, your engine just sucked the dirt, garbage, etc., out of the tank. there's plenty of sediment in the tank, don't know how it gets there, but, you'd be surprized ! talking threw experience !!! I operate heavy equipment, its a cardinal sin to run out of fuel !!! you say you replaced the inline filter, which one, up by the engine or the main filter, under vehicle along frame ? are we talking about the same animal, PLEASE CLARIFY !

My 05 Volvo XC 90 shuts down in mid drive or idle mode

So did they put more gas in the car and did it run fine. It's happened before. And just cause the gauge says whatever. It's not perfect and could be a hose leaking inside the fuel tank and may need to be taken apart to find out what's wrong. Has the fuel pump been worked on and maybe done something incorrectly. Can't tell you what's wrong cause we don't know. How long did the car run before it happened again. If you keep the gas above half does it run fine.

Easiest way to replace a fuel pump on a 2002 chevy avalanche?

i replaced the fuel pump on my chevy avalanche last year there is really only one way to replace it ,you have to take the braces down that holds the fuel tank up, unhook fuel lines, and rubber filler hoses, drop the gas tank to be able to get to the fuel pump. i bought a book at auto parts store that takes you step by step on how to do it.

How do you change a fuel pump in a 2003 chevy avalanche?

drop the fuel tank. (hopefully it is just about empty) on top of tank unplug power plug disconnect fuel lines and remove locking ring on top of pump unit, lift pump up out of tank. replace in opposite order. It really is that easy if the tank is empty as you can do it all with no jack . I did my yukon xl in about a hour but i had a friend handing me whatever i yelled for. I also removed the rear driveshaft so i would have plenty of room to sit up under the truck and god was that nice. Make sure you support the rear axle up with jackstands, yes jack rear of truck off the ground.

2002 Avalanche gas gauge problems

Gm has a real problem with fuel tank sending units. That is what is wrong. You need a fuel tank sending unit. You can only get them aftermarket with the whole fuel pump module, but you can buy them seperate if you buy it from the dealer.

Im having trouble pumping gas into my 2005 chevy avalanche. sometime it spits gas back at me

Try checking the vent tube. if you look under the truck it will go from the gas tank filler tube to the top of the gas tank.
