2004 Silverado Gas Gauge

3 posts in this topic

Filled my truck a couple days ago when it was about -15 out. Next morning, I noticed the gas gauge went well above the full position, probably about 1/4 revolution past full. When I shut off the truck it reset back to somewhere in the 3/4 full range. Over the course of the last few days it has gradully been working its way around the dial. Now its almost reading at the E when its running and it is resetting to a point above the F. It seems to me that its probably the gauge that is B/O, but I was wondering if you folks have any experience or suggestions. Anyone know if there is a TSB on this? How difficult is it to remove the instrument cluster and replace the gauge?

Sounds like the cluster may be going bad. They are simple to remove....not cheap to have repaired. There is a place in NE Mpls that does them for 200 with a one day turn around if thats what it turns out to be.

How many miles are on it? There is an issue with the clusters on the 04's that can be taken care of under a special warranty if it falls into a certain VIN range. The warranty goes up to 70K, but if you're not far out of it they may do a goodwill repair. If you're still around or before the 70K range, you'd have to call a dealer to see if you qualify.

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!

    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
