The gas gauge is going haywire. It pegs to the "F", and then immediately pegs to the "E", even though the tank is half full. The gauge then jumps around the middle form one side to the other side. It is impossible to tell how much is in the tank. This happens while driving and also while sitting at lights or stop signs.

I have a Z24 and my car stalls out and turns off while driving I have contacted a Chevy dealer who stated that the Cavalier's do, but my type of vehicle(Z24) isn't affected. Explained it is and they should see about this. And I would have to pay to get this fixed. Also, when researching this information on the internet I have found many other customers who have had the same problem as I with my type of vehicle. Why would 1 type of car of the same year have the problem and not all of them? it has the same components just designed a little different.
