Yes....another GM flop is the sensor is built into the tank and cannot be serviced. If the tank is full and whacking it does not help you, rather than spend $100 on a new tank, just unplug the sensor underneath and occasionally check the coolant as with all other fluids.

just and fyi...

Our tanks are getting older and some are splitting at the seams. I would be careful how hard you whack them.
