Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation on Chevrolet S10

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 Sensor is irradic and at times drops to "E" causing "Low Fuel" light to illuminate. Replacement of either the Float Ass'y (part of Fuel Pump Ass'y) or entire Fuel Pump Ass'y must be replaced (Remanufactured Pump Assy's are available).
