Faulty pickup tube---faulty sending unit---faulty gage
my best bet sending unit
look in the owners manual how much gas the tank contains
and check to see how much you pump in when gage reeds 1/4
if you pump in close to the amount stated the sending unit is bad
if not could be gauge or pick up

My 2003 tahoe spins over but won't start ?


When you turn the ignition key to the on position can you hear the fuel pump running?
The fuel pumps are notorious for failing. The fuel pump is located in the gas tank and you'll have to drop the tank to replace it.

My 2000 Tahoe will not crank unless you have over 1/4 tank of gas, last week it started dying while driving down the road, After 100 miles it died and then got more frequent and now dies after a mile. It...


Try replacing the fuel filter first and the primary fuel filter screen in the fuel pump may be dirty also. As for the the one in the gas tank which is a part of the fuel pump, your just going to have to keep the gas tank half full and add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank for the next feet fill ups. As for the fuel filter along the frame rail on the drivers side, they have a life of 30,000 miles or 1 year and needs to be replaced within those recommended intervals. Good luck and hope this helps, Note: the gas is what keeps the fuel pump cool, so low fuel in the gad tank will have the fuel pump run hotter causing it to fail prematurely
