Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture

2 Answers

I have a 97 Chevy Venture Van with a weakening fuel level sensor.

I have a 97 Chevy Venture Van with a deteriating fuel level sensor(fuel guage moves erradically).
Is this a sign that the fuel pump will fail in the near future?

I've read that the fuel sensor can be replaced independantly from the fuel pump without R+R of a new complete fuel pump. Is this true?

Thanks for all your efforts in answering my questions:)

To the 97 venture fan not blowing. You asked three question that need verified. get your self a 12 volt test light. there simple then you verify voltage at the fan.if so most likely its your fan if you can use a volt ohm meter ck resistor at the motor usealy any reading is acceptable. The resistor you spoke of is most likely your speeds. If nothing else run a jumper to the fan from the battery.

No it's not, if your van is running fine, fuel pump is good, just the fuel gauge sending unit is bad, to repair, the gas tank will have to come off, the sending unit sit on the same hanger the fuel pump is on.

2000 chevy venture. wont start. change fuel pump runs perfectly for one day. next day the van start and drives out of driveway sputters and dies. starts and sputters back home. change the fuel censor. ...


Testing is the way to a fix . Fuel pump pressure testing , electrical testing . Viewing engine sensor data on a scan tool . Instead of guessing as to the problem learn to test or take it to a qualified repair shop . Changing ECU without doing it correctly can cause problems that were not there before . PCM - engine computers need to be programmed , dealer only.

I have a 1999 Chevy Astro Mini Van, the fuel gauge shows that it is empty when I just filled it up , it is always moving from full to emtry , is my fuel pump sending unit going bad?


Hi, typically, this would resemble a faulty sending unit, when the computer sets a code for this sensor, it will set your guage to empty as a result. A new sensor may correct this condition.Good luck...Coop

97 CHEVY ASTRO VAN - NON WORKING FUEL GUAGE


When you replaced the fuel pump, did you have you switch to the new harness? Check your wiring.
Could it simply be a relay?
My dash gauges went nuts but the car runs.
Do you hear the fuel pump running?
Did you replace the fuel filter? Should be on the frame under the driver.
Bosch fuel pumps are the way to go. The ret seem to **** out after 60,000.
Good luck.

97 Silhouette Fuel guage not working correctly


drop fuel tank. if guage moves all around its probably the fuel level sensor on fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank. If the guage stay's in one spot its the guage , replace instrument cluster assembly. you can take just the glass off the cluster and move the fuel guage needle and it will work (if stuck) but for how long? The wires to the guage come from the sending unit to the power train control module to the instrument cluster. pray its not in the wiring.
