If you’ve viewed the links below you’ll know that there are a few glitches that you need to be aware of with the some of the C6 Corvettes and most you can live with….at least for a while.
One of those is the fuel gauge issue mentioned in this posting C6 07 Corvette – Fuel Gauge/Low Fuel/Service Fuel System http://wp.me/p2YxYx-I4 . So here’s the rest of the story.
The gauge issue started out as an intermittent annoyance, which only occurred when I filled the tank(s). As you can see in the above posting and subsequent postings/comments that there was a common ‘solution’ for the problem. Most owners believed that the use of Techron gas additive would clear that up. But I’m betting most of them discovered that it wasn’t a dirty sensor, but a defective on. I tried the Techron solution for months and it never seemed to clear up. Eventually the gauge failed to work at all, except every now and then it would kick up and hang at a position on the gauge for a few miles and then drop back to the empty position.
Recently (within the last month) it began to work in the opposite direction, steadily showing some sort of fuel level, but inaccurate.
Here are the offending pieces – (there a long back story on how I got the old parts and I’ll share that in the past part of this post).
The sensor run about $150 depending on where you find them and the fuel pump it’s self from $499 – $600.
More of the store coming up.
