Blazer 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Fuel level indicator: Sending unit frequently fails causing indicator needle to constantly swing across face from 'E' to 'F'. Chevy dealer says this is happening many times in blaser/S10 vehicles. Chevy dealer says it's a bad sending unit that needs to be replaced and will fail again in a short amount of time. Chevy dealer says that the manufacturer is well aware of this defective part problem that fails when used.

The gas guage on my vehicle has recently started bouncing around on my vehicle so most of the time I have no idea how much gas I have. Two days ago I ran out of gas on a main highway and had to take my life into my hands to go get more. I'm not happy, I haven't had vehicle very long!!! I've been told it's the sending unit responsible for this and now I'll have to pay in excess of 600.00.

Fuel gauge fails to function properly. Truck has no gas, yet gauge shows over a quarter tank. Sometimes gauge fluctuates from full to empty randomly without reason after below half a tank. Have run out of gas several times on highway. This seems to be a serious issue and costly repair. I know plenty of others with same problem as well as seeing numerous postings.

Fuel gauge does not read accurately. When I fill the tank the gauge goes to full. It seem to read accurately until getting to half tank. At that time it remains right at half full no matter how much further I drive. I have noticed several other identical complaints with the same vehicle. Running out of gas is a very unsafe possibility! the repair for the sending unit was quoted to me $750 which is outrageous for something that is a common problem and should be recalled.

Fuel guage failure on 2000 Blazer. Teenage son stranded on middle freeway lane during heavy traffic. Guage showed fuel. Tank empty. Estimated repairs= $600. This has happened to friends with same year Chevrolet. Internet full of complaints. This is a serious safety issue, and a very costly repair that many cannot afford. Please, please help. I am submitting the same complaint for 1997 Chevrolet!
