Question about 2000 Buick Century
I was adding freon to my mom's 2000 Buick Century. It was up past 35psi on the gauge, then I heard something else kick on and it dropped below 35psi and the needle on the gauge was moving back and forth.

Sounds like you've got a defective fuel level sending unit. It's in your tank, probably attached to the boost pump assembly. Normally the top of the tank can be accessed via the trunk where you should be able to remove the assembly for replacement. While you're in there, look around in the tank with a very bright flashlight for any debris or pieces from the assembly laying on the bottom.
Horrible gas mileage can be caused by very many things. Try to buy an OBDII diagnostic scanner to figure out what's malfunctioning. Sensors don't last very long, and can wreak havoc on performance and economy.

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

You're either looking at a short in the wire that goes to the fuel sender, or a bad fuel sender. If it was just a broken wire, it would read empty instead. The fuel sender is a permanent part of the fuel pump, so that has to be replaced as a unit.

The sender unit has a fine resistance wire with a slider to read the level, the slider or wires are worn and making intermittent contact, the low fuel light is a seperate switch so it will still work.access to the sender is usually under the rear seat cushon, under the soundproofing and a cover, have a look and describe what you have .
