That bad fuel sender will manage to cut the fuel, and it looks like it has done jsut that. If you remove the passenger front tire, and pull out the fender liner, look to the left of the crank pulley.

If you look at this pic, it'* the black thing sticking out the side to the left of the big hole.

Ok, sorry for bringing this up again, but I'm in some deep, uh, you know (family friendly ). Anyways, I went out to install the part today, and when I tried to unscrew the thing, half of it came off, and the other half just won't unscrew (I've tried everything). Now, my parents don't have a lot of tools, especially for cars (I go up to my uncle'*, usually, but that'* a 2 hour drive), so I don't have many options.
Options:
A) Max out my credit card and get it towed (again) to a mechanic to get it fixed
B) Someone from here helps me out so I don't have to spend all that money
C) Have my bonnie sit in my driveway while I'm at college

BTW, I am in Granville, Ohio for the time being, if someone wants to come out here

The widest part near the threaded end is hex shaped. You should be able to get an adjustable cresent wrench on it.

Done, and sadly, it wasn't the problem. Maybe the fuel pump died, maybe something else, idk. I'm sending it to the shop... Thanks for your help guys !

Did you check the fuel pump fuse? And try this: run a 8-gauge wire from the positive lead of your battery to the wire with the green connector hanging from the lip of the fender just above the battery. Listen carefully... does the fuel pump kick in? (no key in the ignition)
