JIMMY/ FUEL GAUGE PROBLEM

2000 GMC Envoy

86K miles.
Wife's car.
When she fills it up, gauge reads full.
Then, gauge will read wherever it wants.
We just left a store and gauge read 3/4. 2 miles later pulling into our driveway it read 1/2.
Any recalls or anyone else have this problem and know the " fix"?
TIA

Replace the fuel sensor and fuel pump for about $750.

No thank you.
New sensor arrived.$64 plus shipping as opposed to $130 plus tax @ the STEALERSHIP.

Just waiting for my wife to burn off some fuel before I lower the tank. : D

Good job Jonny: I have the same problem but my stealership told me the fuel sensor and the fuel pump are one unit and have to be replaced together for $750. I told them to forget it and use my odometer to know when to full up.

All stealerships can burn in Hell as far as I'm concerned.
I shopped around and got various answers from Stealers.
" Whole complete unit only= $575" " $130 for the sensor" " I don't give out part #'s" (hahahhahah " click" )
