Crank position sensor should be in the area of the crank pully the largest pully on the front of the motor held in by one 10mm bolt
The fuel tank pressure sensor can be bought separate but usually comes with a new fuel pump so the sensor is on top of the fuel pump exterior of the tank
4.0 'shortstars' do not have a bleeder screw, they are filled at the surge tank which is higher than the coolant anywhere in the engine compartment-fill it to the full level when COLD, and check for pressure in the system when the engine is hot (squeeze the top hose, it should be solid, not easy to callopse). Your surge tank also holds pressure so your cap has to seal tightly with no leak through the overflow tube.
Oldsmobile fuel gauges are notoriously bad (I have an Intrigue and an Aurora) and they get stupid as they get older, not knowing how much gas is in the tank. The sender units are fairly easy to replace (remove the back seat bench, remove the plate covering the fuel pump)-the sender units are not cheap, and you might as well do the fuel pump while you are there-I am going to wait until I need a fuel pump to replace mine, in the mean time I fill my tank no later than 250 miles from the last fill.
Hi- The computer 'system' is actually 4 or 5 modules, or controllers tucked into the dash, under the backseat, and in the engine compartment. First, the clock is easily affected by momentary drops in voltage or loose connection at battery. The monster battery installed in the Aurora is expected to run a small city, but have it tested to eliminate it anyway. As far as the fuel guage goes.... notorious for dropping like a rock below 1/2 tank. Guage is not controlled by computer but sends low fuel signal when float bottoms out. I have owned a 95 'Ourora for 8yrs... Please acknowledge this post if helpful. Have more info if needed- Thanks--Ed
The anti freeze goes into the radiator, if the fluid level is really really low, otherwise it goes into the coolant expansion tank which is a black plastic tank on the passenger side of the vehicle, and will say engine coolant on it. You just pop the cap and fill to the line. Leave some room for the liquid to expand when it gets hot.
