It is common for the sending unit to read the fuel level incorrectly. This is due to a defective module. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump and sending unit replaced because the module is currently not offered separately from the pump and sending unit.

Oldsmobile Aurora Fuel Level Sensor Failure
Oldsmobile Aurora Problem
Model Year Affected: 1997
Visitor, 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora, 129,000 mi
I had the issue of no turn over when cranking on the first try about every 20 stats if the car was on a hill. One day it just did not turn over for anything when I was going home from work. I had it towed to the dealer and needed a new fuel pump assembly. When I had asked them about the erratic fuel readings before I got an inconclusive answer. It took a new pump to fix this at 112000 miles.
