there is a kinda like a bobber type thing in your gas tank and well if you have that kind it will move around and your fuel guage guage arrow will go up and down when the car moves i have that kind also it *****. you can replace it like i did not a small process to do but worth it in the end or there is also electronic one's those are just a b*Tch.

yeah there probably talking bout the fuel guage bober in the tank i guarntee you if you go to a shop or read up u could do it by yourself just have something in hand and big bucket or something to dump your gas in.

well amoffitt , you have to first disconnect your fuel lines running to the gas tank be very careful cause even though you have the car off battery dis connected there is still fuel sitting in those lines ones you have those off and out of the way then take off the gas tank there is usually two hold down straps underneath im not exatcly sure but i think usually 4 bolts take those out gas tank will drop after that u will see the top of the tank undo the screws off of that but make sure u have the tank stable on something like ground something that wont like the tank is on an angle or something like that for the fuel to tip out then once u do that take off that top i talked bout previously and u will see the part try replacing that.

on my intrigue, you can take out the fuel pump behind the seats and have access to the float. Its a gm, so might be similar on yours.

check under your carpet in your trunk, by the rear seats there should be an access door like 99olds said,.
