When my sending unit got squirrely, Chevy replaced the whole pump on their dime. I should think if the sending unit were available separately they would have gone the cheaper route. But maybe it's cheaper to have the tech just R&R the whole pump than spend time repairing the unit, I don't know.

XO.....I agree but the pump is the heartbeat and the sending unit board looks like it can be changed out. When I get some time I’m going to see if they are available.

UPDATE....they are available for $18. I just ordered one for my used pump. They are PLUG & PLAY ad come with the tank gasket as well.

Specialty order through GM or available from 3rd party suppliers? Part number for archive purposes?

I googled Chevy SSR fuel sending unit and several aftermarket suppliers came up from $18-$28.

I came across a Technical Service Bulletin or Recall about this same issue some time ago.
Unfortunately, I can't find it. But, it was up to the discretion of the Service Department
to fix it at no cost. This is the reason that I replaced my Fuel Pump when they had to drop the tank.
Preventative Maintenance prevents future problems. If I find it again, I will post it.

The recall was good for 10 years or 100K from date of in service. I’m three years past that....but the pump did not fail which is fantastic.

My letter says 10 year from date of service(bought an '06 in Nov '05 so from then) or 100,000 miles, and GM would pay 50%.
But when it happened to me when I picked it up they said GM decided they would pay 100%. I read some where the mileage was extended also but can't swear to that. Oh, they did say you don't have to be the original owner to qualify.
