Dash fuel gauge /system problem. pls help
Hello everyone, Well, have a bit of a problem I'm hoping someone has come across, and knows how to fix. Over the last month, the dash fuel gauge seems to occasionally start to visibly drop. Kind if like there was a fuel line rupture, or somehow loosing fuel very fast. Well, it turns out I'm not losing fuel. If I shut off the truck, and restart, the gauge goes back up. It's now happening about every other day, so it appears to be getting worse. Great thing is, it seems once the gauge hits bottom, the pump or something ells shuts off, and the truck starts to sputter and dies. I have a Trax's duel tank system, and digital gauge, so I know there's plenty of fuel available. Being if I shut the truck off, and it corrects the problem temporarily, we are thinking it's not a stuck float. But just do not know.
Being intermittent, myself and a trusted mechanic are unable to locate the problem. You assist in this is greatly appreciated.
