    Fairly common with cars these days. For this car in particular, you can spend a lot on a sending unit kit, then keep your fingers crossed you don't have a fuel pump problem later where you have to replace it all over again, or you can just keep track of your miles and fix it when your fuel pump pukes (what I've chosen to do). Good thing is that GM finally got smart and put an access cover over the pump on these W-bodies under the trunk carpet.

    I would look for either a faulty fuel tank sender ( measures in tank fuel levels and relays info to dash gauge ) or wiring. Sounds like dash gauge is working properly

Sokol520--Sounds like fuel pump/fuel guage sending unit. They are integrated and located inside the fuel tank, most likely.

2001 chevy impala security light keeps coming on


This is a problem with chevy vehicles that have the system theft light. after a couple of years of using the key, the lock tumblers inside the ignition switch tend to wear out and so causing the system to think it's being stolen. Now you have to put the key in and turn the ignition to the on position, without cranking the car and leave it for 10 minutes until the theft light goes out. Very annoying especially if you're in a hurry. The dealer cost to repair the ignition switch goes for about $600-$800. that includes re-teaching the key.
