What is going on with my fuel gauge?

What is going on with my fuel gauge? After a while it seems to go back to "normal"
but still does not register accurately.

Is this the Sender or the Gauge?

Re: What is going on with my fuel gauge?

Could be a loose ground on the sender or the dash. Check the fuel gauge diagnostic here, test the gauge in the first two steps to determine which - gauge, sender or wiring - is bad. https://www.camaros.net/forums/showpo...91&postcount=2

Yup - one way to find the issue - isolate and confirm.

Best of luck hope it is a loose wire gremlin at the tank sender as they are very easy to re-secure.
