my gas gage dropped to empty last night even though I know i had 3/4ths tank. it was raining a little so i assumed something got wet. well it is nice and dry today but it still does not work. there is gas in it. what do you think i should try
Sounds like the fuel sending unit has packed it in. You will have to drop the tank to check the wiring, etc. but this is typically the problem. There is a chance your gas gauge has died, this can be purchased separately from other dash components but I would suspect the sending unit first.
I would try replacing the instrament cluster first there were alot of issues with them in 95 and 96. You should be able to pick up a used for a good price.
i got the same thing on the same truck. my truck runs fine. mine has a bad float because on a half a tank the needle would bearly move. its a $1000 repair so i left it alone.
what if the gas gage come back on after u shut it off and turn it on I had went thow a mud hole then it started I was thank it was a wire
