Your fuel pump/fuel gauge assembly are mounted in top of your gas tank probably when you overfilled it popped loose jamming your fuel gauge you will need to drop your tank down and check this (make sure you empty tank first if not its a heavy load )inspect fuel guage assembly for damage and probably just reinstall if not damaged good luck hope this helps you

Gas tank will not fill up

The only thing in the way of a valve is the little flap that is about 3 inches or so inside the place where the lid screws on. Perhaps you could take a really strong flashlight and look and see if there is something blocking the pipe. Also, take a gas can for a lawn mower and put a small hose on the neck and try to feed a small hose down inside the tank and see if it will take gas that way. Watch out, though that the hose does not get caught by that afore-mentioned flap! You might take a long thin screwdriver or a heavy wire and see if you could hold that flap open.
Be blessed.

When I try to put fuel in my 04 f150 it kicks the fuel system over flow on the gas pump

Don't put the fill nozzle in all the way... pretty common problem.... fuel vapors come out the neck fooling the nozzle into thinking gas is overflowing. Not only is it annoying, but the vapor recovery system in the pump is actually sucking gas (vapors) from your tank, essentially robbing you of gas. Always try to fill when temperatures are cooler, like early morning or night, to reduce vapor recovery.

2004 silvarado truck shuts off at times like it is out of gas but the gage is showing that it is not on empty. i put gas in the truck and it starts up immediately

Your fuel pump is going bad. It is in the gas tank. it shuts off when you are low on gas,because it gets hot. when you add enough gas to cover the pump,then it runs cooler,and will work. you can get by a month or so,just keeping your tank filled...but eventually the tank need to be removed,the pump pulled from tank and replaced with a new one.

Gas tank?

It sounds odd that both cars are experiencing the same problem. This usually indicates a problem with the gas tank not venting properly.
