2002 Chevy Venture

My fuel gauge registers either full or empty and rarely anything in between. I assume the problem is the sensor in the fuel tank. Is this a DIY job and if so how do I proceed?

It will be a pain. It usually requires the disconnecting of the fuel lines and electrical harness, then the dropping of the tank.

A floor jack with a small piece of ply would is advisable to have to help lower it.

It will be the fuel sending unit in the tank.

Not to difficult, but time consuming.

Some cars you can access the fuel tank parts from within the vehicle, like mine. I can just remove my back seat and a access plate to have access to mine.

I work for a chevrolet dealership and taking the tank out of a Venture Van is one of the easiest to do. If you are doing it on the ground it may present some difficulty but if you have an automotive lift or know of someone who does it will make removal alot easier. The sensor is inside the tank and very easy to replace.
