2003 Chevy S10 had fuel pump replaced. When fuel gauge shows slightly below half, the gauge falls to empty and low fuel lights blinks. What could be causing this?


hi,

sounds like the sending unit rheostat(sending unit) has a bad contact or break in the resistance wire. inside the tank theres a float attached to an arm that goes to a small rheostat, like a volume control on a stereo. the rheostat is sending a scratchy signal or no signal to the computer and your getting these readings. that part is inside the gas tank, the part usually comes integrated with the fuel pump. the gas tank has to be lowered to fix it.

1999 chevy Tahoe wont start but turns over


Your fuel pressure can be checked by connecting a fuel test gauge up to fuel test port which will be located on the fuel rail at the back of the engine on drivers side next to the distributor.Your fuel pressure should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.

YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE DOWN THE FUEL TANK AND REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP MODULE OR CHECK WITH THE DEALER AND SEE IF YOU CAN BUY JUST THE FUEL LEVEL RESISTOR IF YOU HAVE HIGH MILES JUST CHANGE THE MODULE IT COMES WITH THE PUMP AND ALL
