If you have a GM vehicle made from 1999-2003, check to see if the SS was OEM spec. If not, have your shop check for any corrosion along the brake lines ...

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.
