mine does the same thing! It also only goes down to half a tank. So half tank is empty 3/4 tank is half etc. Kind of annoying but I don't know if i feel like spending money to replace it.

Not sure on the 98s but the 2000 s and up have stepper motors controling all the gauges in the cluster and of course the ones gm put in are the lowest quaulity available and usually the first one to go is the speedo but I have also heard of people running out of fuel on the freeway with the gauge showing half a tank.. Do a search on ebay there is a fellow in NY that rebuilds the cluster with new stepper motors(better quality than gm) and recalibrates the gauges then ships it back within a week. Of course gm didn"t issue any recall on these even though they can produce life threatening issues with speed and fuel miss information. If you buy a new cluster from gm today you get the same old crappy steppers that last about 80,000 kms than crap out.
