Chevrolet S10 Problem Report
Chevrolet S10 Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation
The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.
Upon start-up fuel gauge goes to full then to correct level, then back to full, then bounce back and forth between proper reading and full. Then would read higher than normal unless made a somewhat sharp turn or over rough terrain then would make its way to proper level. Each day worse and worse. - Visitor
Gauge reads full, then drops to empty, then back to full every 4 or 5 minutes when traveling. Doesn't matter whether there are 3 gallons of gas or a recently filled tank. Haven't found a solution yet. - Visitor

fuel gauge reads full one minute then empty the next. don't know how much fuel is in the tank - Visitor
Level always reads high - Visitor
Fuel gauge hasn't worked for years. I just keep track of my mileage. The problem was somewhat fixed by replacement of the fuel injection system. The gauge still isn't totally accurate. Also the low fuel lite comes on when parked in a downhill position. - Visitor
This has been an issue for years, but only in Oregon, with DEQ making me fix it do I have to address it. Dealer wants almost $500 to fix it (including labor). Looking for a mechanic to do it for less. What a rip. - Visitor
Never fixed, sold s10 - Visitor
