Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • 41,000 miles


Fuel gauge started not working properly. Initially it would show half full when filling up, then the gauge stopped working completely causing me to be stranded on the interstate. The cost involved to fix it at the dealership was too high so I have chosen to calculate my mileage when I fill up.

The fuel gauge would have different readings while driving. GM replaced the fuel level gauge at a cost of $400.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • 46,500 miles
Fuel gauge reads incorrectly and shows incorrect amount of fuel intermittently. Very distracting and unsafe when you are not sure how much fuel you actually have. This has been a problem for some time, and the dealer has indicated it can't make a repair because General Motors doesn't consider this a safety issue. This problem began in October, 2010 and continues because of the cost to make repairs. The dealer indicates a parts cost of $500 plus labor.

Fule gage shows empty. Same also occured on my 2006 Envoy. GM will not repair either Envoy unless I pay approx $600. I would like to see a recall and the parts used to last. Safty is also a concern as check light goes on and off and you have to estimate fule used. I see on line that this is a problem for GM. Has GM improved this fuel sender?

The contact owns a 2007 GMC Envoy. The contact noticed that the fuel gauge displayed an inaccurate reading and she was unable to determine how much gasoline was in the vehicle. The failure began three weeks ago. The dealer was notified and informed the contact that there were no related recalls. The manufacturer was contacted and agreed to pay for the parts but not the labor. The vehicle was not repaired. The current mileages were 42,000. The failure mileages were 41,600.

The contact owns a 2007 GMC Envoy. The contact stated that the fuel gauge continued to increase and decrease displaying an inaccurate reading. When gasoline was added to its capacity the fuel gauge displayed that it was empty. The dealer stated the fuel sending unit on the vehicle failed and needed to be replaced. The contact feels that was a safety defect by the manufacturer because the vehicle has so few miles. The failure mileage was 29,000 and the current mileage was 31,000.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • 43,000 miles
The gas gauge on my 2007 Envoy has been acting very erratic lately. Each time I fill my gas tank, the gauge remains at empty for maybe a day or so. Eventually it goes from empty to full and back to empty several more times. Sooner or later it will remain in the full position and seems to act normally. I have also noticed my service engine light coming on for a day or two and finally goes out. That seems to happen after I fill my gas tank. Nobody at the dealership seems to be aware of any problems with the fuel gauge in the Envoy. But after reading a few of the complaints to this website, I realize there is a problem that General Motors does not want to address.

GMC Envoy fuel gauge goes to empty at approximately a half-full tank. It happens every time it falls to a half tank. I have to reset the odometer, so I know when I am truly getting near empty. This started around the beginning of August. I've called GM & they want me to pay $100 to diagnose the problem when googling the problem there are many Envoy & trailblazer posts with the same issue. I have an appointment for diagnosis.

Hello, did GMC will do something with the fuel sensor? I have GMC Envoy 2007, and fuel sensor stopped working properly. I contacted the dealer and the representative sad that fuel sensor replacements work will cost you $600. It is not fare. I found that a lot of people have the same problem, and GMC did not responded to that problem at all. One investigation already opens for this fuel sensor problem recently for trailblazer. I was driving on I-95 and my car started to send message 'fuel level is low' and fuel gage show 'empty tank', but I have a full tank of gas! I made an emergency stop on I-95, which creates a back up traffic and not safety driving conditions for other drivers. Right now I driving with that problem and let me tell you, it is ¿nightmare¿. ¿fuel level low¿ signal disturbing operation of the car, you have to press controls button on steering wheel and always check ¿how many miles you drove already¿, but if mileage counter will be working or you forget to ¿reset¿, you can stop immediately on highway and create badly accident.

About one month ago, after I filled the gas tank in my 2007 GMC Envoy, the gas meter would shift from F to E as I was driving and the light would come on. I would pull over to the side of the road, turn it off and back on. At that time, the meter would raise back up to the F but as I am driving again, it would drop back down and the empty indicator light would come on again. It has been doing this for a month now and I was even stuck on the side of the road once, njdot came to give me gas, thinking that was the problem, and the car still would not start. Had to get it towed to a gas station, where it then started and I was able to make it home. The car also hesitates (drags) when I'm trying to give it gas, as if it's going to cut off. I was told it was a clogged fuel line and will have it checked but this can cost me $600-800 that seems to be a problem with these trucks. I have read many stories from others who have the same vehicle.

The contact owns a 2007 GMC Envoy. After filling the fuel tank, the contact noticed fifteen minutes later that the fuel gauge was still on empty. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership where the contact was informed that the fuel sending unit needed to be replaced. The vehicle had not been repaired at the time of the complaint. The failure mileage was approximately 44,000. The current mileage was approximately 46,000.

  • 48,000 miles
I have a 2007 GMC Envoy slt with 49,000 miles, still owe $6000 and fuel gauge reads constant empty. I have been told that to change a fuel level sensor, that the gas tank would have to be dropped and sensor replaced @ $91 per hour plus parts. I feel this to be a safety issue because I travel to alot of unknown locations including high crime areas of baltimore city to complete real estate appraisals. I have actually witness drug deals take place less than 100 feet from my vehicle. If I run out of gas in one of these undesirable locations death is not out of the question, at a minimum there would certainly be robbery and assault. What I don't understand is why after several 100 reports of this same issue why GMC will not help with the expense of repairing this issue or recall the vehicle for this very common expensive issue. Please help!

After purchasing a supposed "certified pre owned" GMC 2007 Envoy, the gas gauge has gone bad which is causing the check engine light to remain on less than 1 yr after purchase. This problem is causing an automatic failure in NY dmv vehicle yearly inspection. After taking this to a private mechanic and plugging in the obd, he informed me that this has become a major issue. The fuel sending unit has to be replaced. The cost of replacement is outrageous for a vehicle I have owned for less than 1 yr. This has caused me to run out of fuel several times due to not knowing how much fuel is left in the tank. Once was on a major interstate in NY. Please help myself as well as the many other people I have read about on the internet who are forced to make these costly repairs due to GM negligence just to be able to have the vehicle legally on the road. This is a safety issue that could kill someone on a major highway if they were unable to get to a shoulder or off the highway quickly and safely.

The fuel light (gas gauge) reads empty and the indicator light stays on constantly. The dealer says this is a common problem, but it not under recall by GMC, so the fix would be nearly $350. GM is aware this is a common problem on the 2007 Envoy.

Fuel sending unit failure. Vehicle has only 42,000 miles on it. Many forums list this as a problem, so it is obviously a common defect, yet GM will not address the problem.

  • 36,000 miles
Fuel sending unit is defective after 40,000 miles. Tank readings inaccurate. I live in an urban area where it is not safe to be out of fuel and broken down on side of road. Dealer admits this problem is common for GM Envoy/rainer/trailblazer - numerous online forums list this as a defect - yet GM does nothing to rectify the problem. Item is out of warranty and GM won't cover it.
