I donno 'bout you Pontiac guys, but I scored a OEM fuel sender on Ebay for 79.00 for my '95 88. Similar problem 'cept it seemed be stuck on 3/4 full. I figured there was an issue when I was pushin 250 miles on a tank and it still was on 3/4. I figure in another 80 miles, I can drop the tank without the help of a jack. :o
The part I got was ONLY the sender unit so I will hafta transfer my old fuel pump. Having a working fuel gauge is a big issue with me since this rig is my "road" car. IF this thing works, I will report back the results with the part number and manufacturer of the "sender only". I to was choked when I saw 300+ for the "fuel module. I figure the fuel tank in the Bonnies can't be much different form a lead sled 88.

Has anyone had success with Advance Auto Parts Fuel Sending Unit for $57.48? Seems like it would be missing something for that price, but the picture shows a complete Sending Unit

Just so you know, you're on the completely wrong path. Your problem is your tank baffles are defective. If your gauge reads anything, and your car runs with no problem, and your fuel pressure is good, then you have no problem with your sending unit OR pump, you need to replace the TANK. now if you want, while you're under there, its not a BAD idea to replace all three since you have it apart, definitely will save you alot of time from having to do it, or have it done again.

Older OEM tanks are either not baffled correctly (1992 usually) or have broken baffles. Cheap quality aftermarket tanks can be worse.

This isn't a pump or sender problem at all, and never was. WJcollier is right on the money. This is a tank baffle issue.

so what would be the solution to it since he was just stating that aftermarket ones are worst? because i already replaced the tank when i replaced the unit. i got both from the JYor should i just try nad find a tank from a newer year? it should fit right?

Get a tank from a 94/95. Swap your pump and sender into it.

Make sure the baffling is intact when you do it. Make sure the baffles are no worse than this:

This one causes me no problems except at the dragstrip when I'm on fumes and under hard accelleration. I have to maintain about 1/4 tank to keep things fed right at the track (lean under boost is a very bad thing......very very very bad)
