Envoy 6-cyl

  • 76,000 miles


My fuel gauge stopped working over a year ago and I do not have the funds to repair it. The engine repair light is continuously lit and I have run out of gas on a major interstate. This as a major safety issue for a woman in today's society( kidnapping, rape, runover by another vehicle) I have learned to fill up every 3 days regardless of miles driven. I was driving on the interstate 3 days ago and the car just dies, with a full gas tank, 103 degree temperature and 2 children in the car. Try crossing major interstate traffic @ 80 miles an hour with 2 children, if this is not a safety issue I don't know what is. We had to tow the car and took it to a mechanic and he said the problem with the fuel gauge is located in the same mechanism as the fuel pump and caused the fuel pump to become so corroded that it stopped working. The need exists for an immediate safety recall, before there is a death or serious injury due to a mechanical default that has affected thousands of GMC Envoy and GMC refuses to stand behind their products because it is not a safety issue. It is a safety issue......

Envoy lost power while driving 55 miles an hour down the road. Because I didn't realize it was out of gas I had it towed to a shop thinking there was an engine issue. Shop discovered that it was just out of gas and that my fuel sensor is bad and quoted me $1500 to fix. The gas gauge is never accurate and I have ran out of gas multiple times with two small children in the car. After seeing all the complaints of other people who have the same issue I called GMC and they said that they will only fix for free if it has less than 100,000 miles on it. I only had 108,000 on it when the issue started. How fair is that?

The contact owns a 2006 GMC Envoy. The contact stated that while refueling, the fuel gauge would display an inaccurate reading. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The dealer stated that they needed to replace the fuel gauge senor. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure mileage was 65,000 and the current mileage was 84,000.

Fuel gauge stays on empty even when the tank is filled. Check engine light comes on occasionally. I found countless others with the same problem on other sites. www.fixya.com/cars/T1004109-2006_gmc_envoy_xl_gas_gauge_reads_empty www.automotivehelper.com/topic893628.htm townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.F1F29E4/138 #139 of 151 GMC Envoy 2006 gas gauge by edmunds42 Apr 26, 2012 (9:47 am) I had 2006 GMC Envoy which is giving inaccurate gas level readings. This is known problem with GM SUVS from 2005 -2007. The NHTSA has gotten 668 complaints. GM agrees to pay 1/2 the fee to fix it. My half was $194. The dealer stated they will not paid 100% because it is not a safety issue. I told them -"try running out of gas on the entry ramp to the george Washington bridge and see how safe it is". GM should recall these vehicles and fix them.

Fuel gauge has stopped working properly. When tank is filled, the gauge reads empty and fuel light is on. When the fuel level begins to decrease below the full level from driving the vehicle, the gauge fluctuates between the completely full mark and the empty mark. This fluctuation can occur during a trip that is less than a few miles.

  • 80,150 miles
While driving vehicle, started to rough idle and almost caused a vehicle accident because I was unable to stop the car while driving, engine shutdown while driving and lost all power and braking & steering ability, restated vehicle and got burning gas smell from vehicle exhaust pipe and check engine light on with code P0014, got vehicle serviced and had new sensor installed but now getting pinging sound from engine under load and while driving at speed and minor vibration while at idle. I feel this is a serious issue with this vehicle where almost feel unsafe driving vehicle due to running risk of engine shutdown while at speed and unable to steer or brake when engine stalls due to this condition with code P0014 in cars computer. Would really like to be contacted about this issue, GM should have a recall to inspect these systems and provide free repairs of any faulty sensors and provide a full service check on this vehicles. I felt real unsafe to drive this vehicle due to worrying about causing engine damage or having a accident because of this high end failure of this componet
