GMC Jimmy 2000 fuel gauge not reading the correct amount of fuel. This is a ongoing problem. Running out of gas is a big problem if you don't track mileage. Very unsafe as one could be stranded.

My 1998 Envoy had thie same issue (which I bought new) as the used 2000 GMC diamond edition Jimmy I bought to replace it after I was T-boned in Aug 2009... fuel gauge is totally faulty and I have to reset the tripometer every time I fill up or will run out of gas due to false readings. As a single mommy with two kids I am scared of the idea of getting stuck on a dark highway headed in or out of town because of this. If the tripometer ever goes I will be at a loss. The key sticks in ignition and I have to turn the vehicle of and on sometimes 30 or 40 times while others only twice or so... with hundreds of complaints posted on the web... )and that is only at first glance) I have seen with these known issues I do not know what to do.

The contact owns a 2000 GMC Jimmy. The contact stated that the spider port injector was leaking gasoline between the firewall and the engine. There was a recall for the previous year, make, and model vehicle, but not for the 2000 Jimmy. The contact smelled gasoline in the vehicle and took it to a personal mechanic. The dealer stated that gasoline leakage was a common failure. The contact feels that this is very unsafe due to the fact that gasoline leaking on a hot engine may cause a fire. The failure was noticed while driving 25 mph. The current mileage was 115,000 and failure mileage was 93,000.

I continue to have constant problems with my 2000 GMC Jimmy. First thing that happened was the gas gauge just started messing up. Giving false reading. I ran out of fuel two times because the gas gauge showed I had half of tank of gas and apparently it was empty. Leaving me sitting on the side of the road way out in the country. The second time this happened it cost me my current job. My employer did not believe that my gas gage would give such false readings!

The gas gauge does not work once the amount of gas is below half a tank. I have a GMC 2000 model. There are many complaints about this on the internet, yet no recall. The gas needle either sticks, bounces around or shows a full tank when empty. I never know how much gas I have or if I will end up stranded on the road at night. I guess if someone has a deadly accident due to their vehicle cutting off due to an empty fuel tank with a gauge reading full in high speed traffic, someone will look at this widespread problem then. I hope that I am not that person.

Was driving down highway all of a sudden ran out of gas, car behind me almost hit me because I slowed all of a sudden, gas gauge showed I had half tank, gas gauge bounces back and forth, it was a bad fuel sensor, I feel it is a safety issue because consumer is not aware how much gas they have and could cause an accident if they run out all of sudden.

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy with 49500 miles. My gas gauge started to malfunction, and was displaying inaccurate readings. I was quite concerned since this was a fuel related problem. It turns out an electrical component in the fuel sending unit GM part number 25314231 had failed. From what I was told by the GM dealer, this component is submerged in the gas tank of the vehicle. I am reporting this to you for investigation as a possible safety related issue.

When driving, windshield wipers are needed, and windshield wipers are smearing up the center portion of windshield, causing poor driver's visibility. Consumer has contatced dealer. Dealer has replaced blade and arms on five different occasions, problem still occurs. There is a gap in the rear tailgate window, however it can not be adjusted because the hinges are welded in place by a robot. Vehicle experiences poor gas mileage, however dealer stated this was normal.
