I have a 2000 Silverado with an erratic fuel guage, which I understand is quite normal. I`ve read that the transmitter often is faulty on these, and needs replacement. Now I`ve noticed that with the guage reading E (where it goes when not working), when I move the gear selector, especially into neutral, and it drops into the detent, the guage will often return to where it should be. This doesn`t happen every time, but, over 50%! Has anyone else experienced this ? I suppoe it could be the column wiring, but why would fuel guage wiring be on the column ?
