I have a 2000 Blazer with 58,000 miles and the fuel gauge does not work properly. I have heard dealers and mechanics say that it is common problem with Chevrolet. I would like to know if they plan to address the issue. Also, my locking rear differential does not work. My brother had it replaced twice under warranty on his 2004 Z71.

Since purchase of vehicle Oct 2000 I have been in the shop 35 X for manufacturing problems. Ongoing problems include dimming of headlights at any given time and flickering of clock/radio display at any given time. Service attempted to fix the dimming and flickering by replacing the alternator, but it did not fix the problem. They are now unable to duplicate the problem. It took service 5 attempts to fix taillight water retention problem (they sealed the entire assembly). The rear differential fluid was reportedly low from factory causing a grinding sound in my gears (it took 2 attempts to fix that problem). Since that differential problem, I have had a clunk between 2nd & 3rd gears (service is unable to duplicate the problem).
