Gas gage is not working rite

The most common cause of a erratic or incorrect fuel gage reading is a defective fuel gage sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace the sending unit requires that the fuel tank be removed from the car and then the fuel pump module which contains the sender be replaced.

Fuel pump replacement, location and tools needed please

the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace it, u will need a good hydraulic floor jack and safety stands to support the car, no special tools are required except the jack, just a really good set of hand tools, 3/8" ratchet and sockets, both deep sockets and shallow, metric and SAE.

Fuel pump

On your fuel pump question between 1997 and 1996, the Fuel pumps are different and are not interchangeable.Some vehicles and years are, and some are not.And there is no way that you could possibly modify the pump safely enough to make it work.I hope I could help!!

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

Remove Fuel tank w/o removing subframe?

found answer.
You can access it though the trunk under the carpet, right side toward the back. There is an access pannel then under that is the fuel pump. You'll need a new lock-down washer. About 10 dollars from AC Delco. Take precautions. This is a dangerous job. Fuel tank should be as empty as possible, take off gas cap and you need to relieve the pressure in the fuel system. If your lucky the lock-downs on the gas tank won't be totally disintegrated

Fixing a fuel pump on a 1997 oldsmobile aurora

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.
