I have a high mileage 2002 Buick Century.

My gas gauge is acting very weird in how it reports fuel level.

I know it is common for a fuel level to vary when you are parked on an incline. However, mine is out of control. I can be below E, with a warning light on in my slightly pitched driveway, and be a half tank or better when I start to drive up the road (which is a slight incline). At times, I have seen the level show a variance of E to F, depending on the incline.
As I mentioned, this is an old car with a lot of miles on it, so I am not looking to spend a lot of money here. Any ideas?

To whom this may concern I'am so so sorry it was not my brake light it is my antilock light.

My brake light came on about 3 days ago, it has not gone off but it does go off when I turn car off and then it will come back on ? The low traction comes on sometimes when I drive slow not all the time I just would like to know if I need brake fluid or what even though I have not checked it out yet. I'am just soooooooooooo scared about the brake light. Please do let me know Thank you very much.

temp gauge goes to red line at 203 degrees (temp is 203 at computer according to my scanner).thermostat works fine.Just replaced lower intake gasket,thermostat waterpump due to leaks.Also replaced temp sender at this time due to high reading,but problem still exists.Any idea what resiatance or other readings should be at temp sender?

pfmills problem solved; plug wires were arcing, plus in bad need of new plugs.

This car leaks gas everyday no matter whether we park on flat ground, up on a hill, or facing down. We don't really know what it's from, but I figure it could be a hole in the gas tank. How much do you think it would cost to replace the tank? We're trying to figure out if it's worth it to replace the whole thing or to just keep on driving it until we need to get another car.
Thanks very much.
