What is the cost to replace fuel sending unit in a 2001 Buick Century?

Price would depend on where you live and where the part is purchased. The tank would need to be removed to replace the sending unit and the pump is usually included.
Cost of parts could be over $400 plus labor.

Fuel gauge not working

The problem is almost always caused by a defective fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace the sending unit you must remove the gas tank from the car and replace the fuel pump module which contains the fuel level sending unit. Repair cost is about $600.00 USD's

My fuel gauge doesnt work on my 2002 grand prix. how do i fix it?

Usually this problem originates from the sending unit, not the gauge. It's unfortunate because the sending unit is located inside the fuel tank. It's even more unfortunate because the sending unit is integrated into the fuel pump assembly, which costs ~$200. Sometimes the sending unit contacts can be cleaned / sanded, but most often, because the labor is about the same cost as a new fuel pump assembly, people opt to just replace it.

Good luck.

My gas gage dont work someone said its the float and that i would have to replace the sending unit is that true and how

Typically, your friend is correct, the sending unit fails the most often. You have to drop the tank to access the sending unit. If your car has fuel injection, be ready for a costly replacement, as the fuel pump is part of the sending unit.... Test the old sender with an ohm meter....

Car has a hard time starting only for the 1st time of the day it starts after 3 times, we replaced the octopus we did a tune up complete still does the same thing

there is a check valve in the tank, part of the fuel sending unit. these go bad and let the fuel run back into the tank, that is why it takes time to start. you can't buy it separate from the sending unit. It will cost around $300.00 to fix it, plus labor if you don't do it. I would live with it till some else on the unit went bad, ie.pump.

your feul sending unit is bad. everybody replaces the whole unit nowadays because it includes a new feul pump as well. that is a good price if it is the pump and sending unit together. our suburban repair shop was $1238. we did it our selves for $300 and it took 8 hours to do

The gas guage does not work on my '97 S10 pickup (it shows about 3/4 tank.) Is this something I can fix myself ? If so, what parts do I need and what will it cost, approx? If NOT, how much will it cost to...

The level sensor in the tank has gone bad. You can buy a fuel sending unit for about $100 (you used to have to replaced the whole tanks for hundreds of dollars, but they had so many issues they started selling the sensors on their own).

You can fix it on your own, but you're going to want the tank to be pretty much empty before hand.

Here is an example of replacing one on a S-10 blazer. Should be similar for your truck:

Fuel gauge stopped working

Can't say for sure since you did not include year of your car but more than likely it's the fuel sending unit that requires replacement. Some years you can replace just the level sensor on the fuel sending unit but both repairs involve dropping the gas tank and opening to remove the fuel sending unit.
