Odd fuel gauge behavior
I have a year 2000 Chevy Tahoe Z71 that is showing some very odd behavior
with its fuel gauge. It is annoying because a few days ago the vehicle ran
out of fuel, so I would like to fix the problem. Perhaps someone here
could make some suggestions on the subject. :-) Please.
When the vehicle engine is running, and the automatic transmission is in
PARK or NEUTRAL, the fuel gauge jumps around--- anywhere between
completely full to completely empty. When I put the transmission in to
DRIVE, the fuel gauge stops where ever it was when I do so. If the needle
is near empty when I put the transmission into DRIVE, the needle stops
near empty; ditto if the needle is near full, or in the center, etc.
Why in the world would the automatic transmission have any connection at
all with the fuel gauge?
If the scientific consensus is that Earth isn't flat, why
are there still astronomers?
