Where is and how do you change the gas gauge float on a 1999 Chevy Malibu?
your gas gauge float is in the gas tank you have to drop your gas tank and take out sending unit but if the gas gauge is not reading right you should check the ground wire on the gas tank
The fuel gauge is on what is called a float. The float rises and lowers according to the level of fuel in the tank. That reading will change.

Why would the gas gauge in a 1999 Chevy Malibu LS suddenly drop but go back when you turn the car off and on?
When the gas gauge stops working in a vehicle, the first thing to check is the fuse. This is an easy and inexpensive task and may end the problem right then and there. If that isn't the issue, there could be a lose or broken wire between the gauge and the battery, or the float could be stuck or need to be replaced. It is also possible that the voltage regulator is failing.
