The good news first!!
No need to drop fuel tank!!
Lift carpet from trunk ... just in front & a little to the right of spare wheel well is an access cover. When screws and cover are removed you have complete access to top of tank with pump and sender assembly mounted below a twist off clamp ring. When replacing Delphi fuel pump unit make sure you also replace gasket.
The bad news!!!
New pump unit over $300!!! ... try junk yards.

Hi, my 97 aurora has a fuel gage problem, when I reach say half a tank it go's wacky. Sometime reading full and empty can you give me an idea how to fix it??? George

the only solution is to replace the sender unit, they are notorious for being wildly inaccurate as they get older-some people have had success putting technitrol fuel system cleaner in when the tank is low on fuel, as it can clean off the years of accumulated buildup on the sensor. I have a 2000 Intrigue and a 2001 Aurora, and both are sometimes not accurate (especially the Intrigue) and have researched it, it is a known issue with Oldsmobiles. I use my trip meter to determine when to put gas in, never let it go past 250 miles without a fillup.

According to my parts guide, the fuel pump for your 97 Olds Aurora fits only that and the 97 Buick Riviera's and nothing else. The pump for a 99 Park avenue comes up as a different part number. Hope this helps!

Replacing fuel pump on 1995 oldsmobile aurora

The GM 1995 Aurora repair manual, says to use the access hole under the carpet in the back right corner of the trunk. You are best to buy a new fuel sender locking nut or ring at the dealer for about $8.

Forgot to add this - to relieve the fuel pressure, just use the press the center of valve on the fuel rail (for pressure testing) and a rag to catch the dribble. Really no big deal.

Make sure disconnect the battery cables too
