SOURCE: 2002 Grand Prix Sending Unit

the fuel sending unit is located on the top of the fuel tank, On the grand prix you will have to drop the tank down (remove the tank straps) and the remove the ring that holds the unit in and then you can just pull the unit right out of the tank. You then place the new unit in and the installation is the reverse of removal

when the tank gets low on fuel(under 1/4) or less.. the pump, which uses the gas to keep cool, will get hot and start to cavitate(run at slower speeds and cause a severe fuel pressure surge)..the engine will respond accordingly..most will do this as the system gets avoid it and possible premature pump failure, keep the tank at least 1/4 fll..

Tips For Fuel Saving _ Hypermiling

T i p s f o r H y p e r m i I i n g.
The points indicated will help a long way to improve performance of vehicle, engine life, reduce maintenance bills except the periodic checkups, and lastly improve a great deal in going that extra mile for your costly fuel. Regarding Driving habits: Never ride on the clutch. Never ride on higher gear at lower RPM- avoid the engine pinking as one tends to waste fuel to power the engine. Avoid accelerating and braking at short length. Decelerate using lower gear without powering engine unnecessarily on seeing an obstruction, junction or stop. Highway driving - keep a steady average in top gear without over /under powering. Wind up window glass at higher speeds to avoid drag. Cut off a/c moments before you stop as sufficient cooling will remain also reducing strain on engine. Regular washing/waxing/polishing of body will improve aerodynamics reducing drag. Cut off engine at longer duration traffic signals, level crossings, traffic jams. . Fill with best grade of fuel as it improves power/performance of engine, incrementing the mileage ratio. Different grades are available but one can choose the better grade to give a longer life span specially for diesel engines. It has better octane value and purity. If possible try to fill up the tank as it reduces: Avoid Trips only to fill fuel. Built up of volatile gas over a dry tank leaking. Loss due to the numerous short fills -a percentage could be expected. Check up only at a determined period. Air Pressure confirmed as specified not less. The multi point check up including Engine oil, fluids, coolants, etc., Avoid changing workshops but keep the log book updated. Confirm with the service manager of spares changed- only with Originals. Brake pads, bearings, hubs are to be checked for obstructions to free rolling. Any new noise should be monitored getting worse wanting an inspection/rectification. Many faults go unnoticed by new users but will require the assistance of a friendly auto enthusiast.

Draining radiator

Terrific question!
First, fill the radiator with coolant, do not fill to the top, just fill about halfway up in the tank.
Start the engine and turn on the heater full blast.
Probably would be good to give it some gas to about a medium idle and hold it there, might require 2 people.
Very carefully watch the level in the tank.
DO NOT put your face over the hole. When the thermostat opens , the coolant will drop quickly.
Try to keep adding coolant as that happens.
After about 5 minutes you should be ready to go.
The way you will know is the heater is blowing hot air.
Now fill it up and replace our cap.
Be Blessed.

Run out of gas and refilled but the engine vibrates a lot now

Not positive, but it's very possible that you damaged the electric fuel pump by running out of gas. Its always a good idea to fill up when you are at a 1/4 of a tank to avoid damage to the pump.

Gas gauge fluctuates frrom high to low and back again on my 1999 GMC Jimmy. I fill the tank every 220 miles to avoid running out of gas.

You almost certainly need a new fuel tank sensor. It is thin resistance wire wound in a spiral onto a form. as the float moves on a pivot, a blade sticking out form that same pivot slides across the windings of resistance wire. The current that flows through the gauge then flows through the tank sensor to ground. If the sliding blade makes poor contact, the resistance in the grounding circuit from the gauge will vary wildly, and it is that current that the gauge is reporting.

The tension of the blade against the resistance wire is very light to avoid wearing it out. With every bump and corner you take, with every acceleration and braking, the float moves around, and if there were any appreciable tension against those windings, they would wear out shortly.

Petrol (gas) inlet is very slow it seem like an airlock have somebody else had a simmilar problem

Yes it's a common problem. You have two options: 1. fill the tank very slowly or; 2. (more tricky) put a short length of 3/8 fuel resistant PVC tubing down the filler neck before you fill up. make sure it is long enough not to disappear down into the tank & short enough not to reach the fuel when the tank is full. It is a good idea to hold onto this tube with you spare hand. Let any fuel in the tube drain out before removing it though & be careful not to spill petrol on yourself. To avoid this bend the tube gently back into the mouth of the fuel filler.

there will be a cap on top of your radiator and also a reservoir tank near the firewall that will be a semi transparent container holding either orange or green coolant (do not mix the two colors)

Stalling (The best I could think of to describe my issue)

Hello tirckydad_4: If this problem begun, immediately after filling your gas tank, my first guess based on your description would be that you bought some bad gas. Try adding some fuel cleaner to your tank. This should help, but the only way to get rid of the bad gas is to use it, or siphon it out and put some gas in from a different gas station. As a tip, try to avoid filling up when you see a fuel tanker re-filling the tanks at the gas stations. Theory goes, then when the fuel tanker is re-filling, the gas station fuel tanks, it is sirring up old sediment that usually has settled at the bottom of the tank. Sediment that has been pumped into cars can cause cars to run sluggish.

Fuel spills out when I fill up.

It is the filler neck it causes splash back.

My dealer told me that if you fill up beyond the first "click" of the gas pump it will mess up the sensor in the gas tank. It might fix it's self eventually, but can be avoided if you anly fill the tank up to that "click".
