Check the plug to the fuel sending unit. Pull down the fuel door (rear license plate) and it's the right bottom terminal plug. If that is unplugged, the fuel gauge will read over full when the key is on. Hopefully that's your problem. Otherwise it could be anything in the circuit (sending unit, broken wire, fuel gauge) etc.

Thanks I will check it.

Stephen, I  had this problem awhile back. Kurt is correct; the small metal strip on my fuel sender had cracked. I removed the gas tank and soldered it back. But check your plug connection first, alot less work.

It is a ground issue.  2 wires come out the back of the of the gas tank.  A black wire goes to the back cross member and is held in with  self tapping screw. Undue it and clean the metal for a good contact.

More than likely it is the ground strap inside the tank on the sending unit, as mentioned earlier.

hi guys,

thanks for all the input on the fuel gauge issue. I checked the ground strap and cleaned it but it was not the problem. I was hoping for a little luck but it looks like the tank is going to have to be removed and see what's going on. I will keep everybody posted as to the result.  thanks again!

Hey Stephen, be sure to wear your eye protection when dropping the tank . Amazing how so much dust & dirt can get on top of it.

Use rubber gas line hose made for ethanol fuel when it goes back together 

Enjoy

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …

Upper A Arm Rubber Bumpers

Posted by Gene McIlroy on August 12, 2019 at 1:30pm 3 Comments

I have found a very good replacement part for the Upper A Arm Bumpers.  The top part is identical to the originals the bottom can be used as is or after a few minutes with a belt sander can be ground to the V shape as the originals were.  The replacement bumpers are for a 2001 to 2005 S10 Sanoma or Blazer.  Part number is on the box in the photos.  First photo is the box next to the box is the S10 part and an original.  Next photo shows my sanded down part next to an original.…
