My Trucks fuel guage is dropping to E then back up to the correct level when I first start the truck and when I come to a stop. When the truck moves again, the guage goes back up to correct level. What could be wrong and how doI fix it? Thank You!

Hi:

This is a very common problem. The fuel float on the pump is malfunctioning. The only way to correct the problem is to replace the fuel pump. The float is a part of the pump.

If you can live with the problem, it'll save you a couple hundred in the cost of the pump. If you want to replace it, let me know and I tell you the easiest way to relpace it.
