Chevrolet Tahoe Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation

(50 reports)

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.

My fuel level gauge has completely stopped working...at first was sporadic (but always wrong) and now it just points straight down. It has not been fixed. -
WONT START BELOW 1/4 TANK GAS.PUT ENOUGH TO RAISE IT ABOVE A 1/4 RUNS FINE...IM SICK AND TIRED OF SPENDING ALL MY HARD EARNED MONEY TO KEEP THIS TAHOE ABOVE A 1/4 TANK.IT COST ME ABOUT AN EXTRA $300 A MONTH JUST TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE THE THING. -
Fuel gauge says there is 1/4 tank of fuel left, but it won't start. It does start if I add fuel to tank. -
fuel gauge occasionally but rarely reads the correct level, usually pegs all the way empty. we use the trip to keep track, @300mi, fill up. when towing, @220mi. -
fuel gage floating from empy to full to half -
gas gauge fell down touching another gauge -
fuel gauge no longer goes all the way to "Full" - it stops between 3/4 and full. -
When the tank is full, the gage will read empty, and then will start working when the fuel level comes down - but after about half a tank, it becomes erratic. -
Erratic fuel gauge readings... had to replace the fuel pump... problem solved -

i have replaced the cluster and fuel pump asseblemy -
My fuel gauge never reads the same with each fill up and if I'm low on gas the check engine light will come on. After filling it up the check engine light goes off. I know it makes no sense but it's true. Lol -
Fuel. Gauge has never worked right. Approx cost of repair??? This Mon my engine light came on. When I finally noted mileage on Sat I was at 110500. I checked oil just in case & I was low. Had to put in 1 qt. Opinions on whether it caused light to come on or not? If not, what other scenario besides just about anything could there be? It's also had cooling sys probs that I first experienced around 60k mi (approx) It did fix somewhat?? But I have still experienced approx 5 engine overheats, since the thermostat & pump repairs (twice). -
Fuel gauge has worked perfect up to this point, now the fuel gauge always shows Empty and the Low Fuel Indicator displays on the Message Center Display. Will be installing new fuel pump assembly. -
engine won't start with less than 1/4 of fuel showing on gauge. Problem solved by adding at least 3 gallons of fuel. -
My gas level was reading empty. Once the tank was dropped I still had at least a quarter of a tank. Replaced the fuel filter and now it wont start. -
Have replaced fuel pump twice .last time 2 yrs ago . Now fuel level gauge is sporadic. -
