March 18, 2013I 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 ?

6 months agoIf your truck has over 100k and has never had the fuel sending unit or fuel pump replaced I`m willing to bet that`s your problem. My truck`s fuel gauge wasn`t accurate and the gauge needle would fluctuate as much as a 1/4 tank sometimes. The fuel pump finally crapped out on me and I replaced the pump as a assembly and it fixed all issues.
