Re: I can\'t tell how much gas my truck has
I dont have my partsimager in front of me right now, so no pictures this time... You simply need to go to the dealer and specifically request the fuel pump module level sensor. Its a float sensor that simply snaps onto the side of the fuel pump module and that will fix your problem. Its a common problem. Its a dealer only item so dont even ask for it at the Zone... they will look at you like you are crazy for asking.
On a side note... I know you may not like the sounds of it, but your module is a few years old now (assuming this is the 99 Tahoe you are asking about). The pump modules they used in these trucks are almost guaranteed to fail within the first five years of the vehicles life. So if you have the money to do it, and only want to do the job once, get the module and replace the whole thing. Trust me on this one, I work for a Delco warehouse, and there is nothing there I sell more of in a week than the GM fuel pump modules out of C & K trucks and Silverado's. Just a small piece of my mind. Good luck to you either way!
