got a 85 chevy 1 ton with a 6.2 , fule gauge dosent work as well as the temp gauge , i replaced the temp sending unit and check all the wireing and grounds to both , im not to familure with chevs more of a ford guy , i know on some older vehicles theres a resistor behiind the dash for the temp and fule gauge , just wondering if someone knows where it would be if it has one , just getting sick of fucking around with it i want it fixed :dontknow:

My dad had an 83 Jimmy that he thought was the sending unit but it turned out to be the gauge and once he replaced it worked great.

ya i tested the sending unit and it seems to be working , and i replaced the whole gauge cluster and still nothing , when the truck is turned off the fule gauge sits at about half a tank and as soon as you start the truck it jumps up to past full and stays there , thats why i thought it would be a ground problem but i checked them all i think unless theres one im missing
