Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala
Disconnect the line somewhere and point it into a container, and power up the fuel pump with a jumper wire at the fuel pump relay. Put battery voltage to the fuel pump wire terminal where the relay plugs in. Careful you don't get the wrong terminal, or you could fry your computer! And for gosh sakes, be safety conscious. Fuel lines are under pressure, so relieve the pressure before you take a line loose.
Another way is to raise the car on blocks or jackstands, and take the filler hose off. Then you can put a siphon hose into the tank and drain it.
A friend of mine wanted 5 gallons out of his Suburban's tank. He disabled the ignition, and used the starter cranking to make the pump run. He told me he got about 2 gallons before the starter got too hot and burned up on him.

The level sensor is bad. They are easy to do. You don't have to pull the fuel tank down. There is an acsess hole in the trunk. Look in the rear of the trunk at the rear of the seats. You will notice there is a spot in the middle that the capet comes together, Pull them apart and there is metal plate with some 10mm nuts, pull that off and your fuel pump is there, remove and replace the sensor.
Also there will the a code in the pcm. you will need to clear it to pass emissions

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.

If you don`t hear the pump running when you press the washer button then it could be the pump.Make sure the fuse is good.The pump is located at the bottom of the washer bottle.check to see if you have power to the pump with a test light while someone presses the button your test light should light.If it does then the pump is bad.Also make sure the ground is good at the pump connector.If you can hear the pump then make sure the lines are not plugged.Hope this helps.Good luck.
