You may have a bad ground in that case, the ground is at the top of the gas tank or the float inside the gas tank could have sunk or got stuck. Check your wires going to and from it not have a power or ground could do it as well.

Check to make sure that the temperature sensor is good. A bad sensor is commonly the cause of the temperature gauge not working.

Check gauge? Never heard of a check gauge light. If you are referring to the check engine light it is on because there is a problem with the emissions system. You need to have the ECU scanned by a professional.

The sending unit may be faulty. The year, make, model and which gauge would help.

Yes they did make a Chevy Silverado SS. In fact they still make them. You can check out the new Chevy Silverado SS at it's own official site at http://www.chevrolet.com/silverado-family.

If available, it would be a custom build.

Yes it will but you will have to change the computer and the wiring harness to make the engine run. You will also have to change the fuel pump that is inside of the gas tank. Alot of work to make that year engine work in the 93 truck.

The largest EVER made was a 2 gauge. It holds a 2 pound metal ball, if I remember correctly. According the gauge index, a 2 gauge shotgun would hold two half pound balls since the diameter of the shotgun tube determines the gauge, the number of balls to equal a pound going down the barrel in this case would only be two to make a pound. Whereas in a 12 gauge, it takes twelve lead balls of the barrel size to make a pound. A two pound meal ball going down the tube would make for a .5 gauge.

On a car, there is a float inside your gas tank. It is attached to a switch that sends the empty.....full signals to your fuel gauge.

Currently it would be a custom order.

There is a sensor inside the fuel tank, that's mounted on the sending unit. It is called a levealing valve sensor and todays fuel has a high content of sulfur in it that coats the senor, and it will need replaced. First you need to make sure that the electric connectors on the top of the tank are clean and tight.

The voltage gauge on the Blazer is not the most accurate (cheap) When using the signals the voltage draw on the system is enough to make the gauge move slightly.

Chevy does make a dually with a flatbed. It's called the Silverado. You can find a Silverado at your local Chevy dealership or online at the Chevy website.

Either the temperature sending unit or the gauge or the wiring in between is bad. I would put my money on the sending unit if the wire harness is plugged in and has no apparent damage.

Sounds like a broken window regulator, if its electric or manual check and make sure it hasn't jumped out of track. I agree, definitely the regulator. Most common thing to go wrong on a silverado. Both of mine have went out on my 99. Expensive.

could be lots of things but have you changed you fuel filter lately?

User Avatar

NO it has nothing to do with the engine dieing. You have other problems.

Bigger tires and raised suspension are what a make a lifted Silverado. Lifted Silverados are above the original suspension of the truck when purchased.
