Customer Question
It's full of gas...

It's full of gas, gage reads empty and it did start but shut off

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Nope not a gas hog, it start like normal and just died, gas gage reads empty, but tank is full

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

S10 20014 cylinder automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your S10?

Sorry fat fingers 2001

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S10 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I added gas cause gage read empty, thinking gas was siphoned, it was not, gage still reads empty, it did start and I drove for a very shirt period on the drive way ... could it be the float is stuck?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
