    Default Gas Gauge Needle "Vibrates"

    My gas gauge needle has started "vibrating" "fluttering" , hell the damn thing moves back and forth. It's driving me nuts. Is my cluster on the outs? or am I looking in the wrong direction? Any help would be great.

    Curious to see the responses. I drove a 99 Sub this week that did the same thing. Needle looked blurry.

    When it vibrates and looks blurry its the actual cluster that is shot. And no you cant just do one needle its all or none will run you about 350 or so, and you can only do it at the dealership as the mileage gets set at the factory. Sorry guys probably not what you want to hear.
