RE: floating gas gauge

I have a issue that is similar. When my 2001 5.3 Z71 is totally full on gas it will drop totally empty and the gas light comes on. Then if I put into drive or hit a bump it comes back to full. It only happens when it is full. Strange,

Might be easier and cheaper to get a whole sending unit. should be one piece. find part number and comparable models used. might get ebay or junk yard

RE: floating gas gauge

fuel pump is the "sender" unit. it is located inside the fuel tank . that is where the float that measures your fuel level is attached.
