Thread: fuel guage

    Default fuel guage

    I have a hard time using this system.
    I have a '92 Silverado 3/4 454 2500 w/75k miles. The fuel guage stayed at about 1/2 then when full it went way past full; the guage was off about 30 degrees. We, a friend mainly, dropped the tank-about an hour+; it was empty. I went to about 5 parts places including Chevy. Auto Zone was the only one w/a sender & pump unit, AND the 2 seperately. Together it was about $250; seperate parts about $100 for sender and $50 for pump. He said to get a new pump since the tank was off. He also took the panel out to look at the guage. He assembled the 2 seperate units and reinstalled.
    It works great so far; nearly empty and the needle is where it should be. I haven't filled it yet but see no reason why it won't be ok.
    Any questions email me:

    I recently made a trip from Blythe (I 10 by the Colorada river) to Palm Springs, west about 115 miles. I put $60 in my 454 at c. $3.50 a gallon. The needle seemed to work fine but went to the warning zone near Palm Springs. Actually it flucuated a bit coming down the mountains into Indio. But basically I think that the repair made mainly by my friend Clifford Hayes Jr. did the trick. He even took out the panel guages and checked them.

    Does anyone know much about repairing a headliner in this truck? I am just 5'9" so the sag in mine doesn't bother me but I would like to get it fixed. I'm not looking for a totally professional job. I've had a couple of comments but would appreciate hearing other views, if any.
