How to change a fuel fliter on a 1995 a uroua

A bad fuel pump in your Aurora can keep your engine from receiving fuel or cranking. Replacing a fuel pump is not an easy task and will probably require an hour or two or your time. The Aurora fuel pump is part of the fuel-sending unit assembly, so the entire assembly must be replaced.
Lift the vehicle, lower the fuel tank and remove the sending unit.

Hi, my 97 aurora has a fuel gage problem, when I reach say half a tank it go's wacky. Sometime reading full and empty can you give me an idea how to fix it??? George

the only solution is to replace the sender unit, they are notorious for being wildly inaccurate as they get older-some people have had success putting technitrol fuel system cleaner in when the tank is low on fuel, as it can clean off the years of accumulated buildup on the sensor. I have a 2000 Intrigue and a 2001 Aurora, and both are sometimes not accurate (especially the Intrigue) and have researched it, it is a known issue with Oldsmobiles. I use my trip meter to determine when to put gas in, never let it go past 250 miles without a fillup.

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.

Wrong fuel level.

The fuel sending unit is probably bad, and that is in the gas tank, which has to be dropped to get at.

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.
