Gas gauge always reads full - 2003 Chevrolet Venture Passanger

Answers :

The unit that sends level info to the gauge is defective; this normally doesn't happen instantly but will show up usually as an erratic movement of your indicator.\015\012
\015\012The sender unit is a variable wire-wound resistor with a wiper attached to the float and the wire element does wear through sooner or later.\015\012
\015\012It is probably necessary to remove the gas tank from the vehicle to replace it unless the engineers were smarter than usual and provided an access hatch from inside the vehicle.\015\012
\015\012The senders are not expensive but depending on how twisted the removal and reinstallation of the tank is, the labor will be the larger cost item.
