I need to hit my dash once in a wile, for the fuel gauge to read correctly. Is this the gauge in the dash going bad?

    These gauges use a little electric motor to move the needles, and these motors go bad. I believe Chevy has extended the warranty on the gauges, so check with your dealer to see if yours is covered.
