Sounds like a bad switch if wiggling it around causes the gauges to jump around.

Fuel gauge says full when it isn't

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.
