I was the other direction (although my brother wound up in Columbus for a year - USAF). My first flight was in a crop duster out of Roscoe Turner Field.

I appear to be having this same problem. I noticed 2 weeks ago my gas gauge went from showing between 1/4 and 1/2 tank of gas to E (with light and beeps) within 2 minutes. I restarted the car, and the gauge was normal. It did it again last week. This morning after putting $60 of gas in the car (tank was between 1/4 and E) the light came on showing it is on E! The car even seemed sluggish to start. Is there any recall on this? What is the cost of the repair? I have a 2007 Envoy.

Your sender is SHOT. I just did my wife's AGAIN..for the second time this past weekend. I went to Advance Auto..bought entire pump/sender assy. and did it myself. cost= $290.00
If you read every page of this thread you will find more info on it. Stealerships charge $800 to do the job (parts included)
P.S. I started this 16 page thread back in Sept. of 2006.
Good luck...you're gonna need it.

I just started to have the Fuel Gauge problem after my last couple fill ups. I'm at 96/97000 miles. I also have the problem with the electrical that causes the car to surge every now and then and the lights dim or brighten when you step on the brake or hit any switches (window or unlock switch). The catalytic converter went when at 82000 (of course just after the warranty expired). I have had nothing but issues with my 2005 Envoy since I got it and it seems that something is always going wrong with it. It's unbelievable that GMC (General Motors) won't take care of issues that can (and has) caused accidents when parts fail that are obviously OEM parts. I've had issues from day one with my car and have dealt with it but when is enough enough? I don't have a lot of money and I'm tired of sinking money into something that is an issue with GMC and not me! I have always been on my soap box and promoted "American" made vehicles but after all the issues with my GMC Envoy I won't be buying American again and especially not GMC. I can't take all the issues one after the next after the next. I can't get out from under the bills of maintaining this car even though the issue is GMC's and not mine. Frustrated at GMC and disappointed in their taking responsibility for defects in OEM parts. Something's got to be done about this before someone gets hurt due to faulty equipment!
Very dissatisfied 2005 GMC Envoy owner!

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy in almost perfect condition. I love this vehicle, but recently I have been having an issue with my fuel gauge. I put 60.00 worth if fuel in and my gauge reads empty and I get the "low fuel" light and chimes. This has been happening for about 3 months now. When I drive about 20-25 miles, the fuel gauge starts bouncing from full to half to empty. Is there a recall or safety issue regarding this problem? I personally think $600.00 to pay the dealership is a bit excessive. Please help. I have ran out of gas 2 times now and I don't want it to happen again. Thank you.

Go back and read the FIRST page of this thread (which I started in 2006). Your fuel sender is bad.
All your questions are answered throughout this entire thread.
I replaced my sender myself for $68? Yes, Stealerships want $600 & up!!. Good luck.

GMC did a recall on some of this stuff. I posted about 2 years back (on this site) about all the troubles i had. GMC finally did a recall, not sure if your model year or timeframe still fits the recall period of time. The recall wasn't even that good...i had spent about $600 for a local mechanic to do the work and only got about 1/4 of what i spent back from GMC. If you have the right equipment and can do the work, then much cheaper. The parts aren't much, it's the labor that is the killer! In my case they had to drain the gas tank and lower it to get the parts in/out. I also had a bad throttle body (which seemed to constantly be an issue on my 2007 Envoy) because it isn't covered and dust/dirt can get in. I no longer own the Envoy - i had way to may problems for a "Professional grade vehicle".

Fill up and the gas gauge goes to empty and the check engine light comes on. Is there a recall on this problem that many people are reporting.
