A restricted fuel line could be a problem.

kilroy when you replaced the fuel sender was there a conector or a sensor for the gas gauge? My tank and sender was replaced today by my mechanic but now the gas gauge doesn't work......just wondering if I can fix it or if it needsto go back for him to get up in there to do something.

all i seen was just the connection that came out of the sender which was a three wire conection which is out of the tank and two wires that bolt onto the pump itself, i have a 92 not sure what you have or if they are different. if i would of took it to a mechanic i would take it back to him.

This looks like a good thread for my prob. '96 SSEi, pin hole in the plastic line on top of the engine,first bend back from the quick disconnect on top of the blower. GM shows the entire line back to the filter as the $80 part. This line turns to steel behind the shock tower, so isn't there a way of just replacing that last piece of plastic from firewall to engine?

i know they sell repair kits at the parts store i was going to do that and they didnt have the right piece that i needed so i went to a mechanic that had the kit to repair them, not sure if he just wanted my money he told me that they sometimes dont work when you cut and splice so i had him make me a new one which was only 35 dollars which was cheaper than the one i would of got from the dealer hopefully somone with better experience will help you out.

Thanks Kilroy. The Name Brand parts stores around here have fixes for the standard Bonny fuel systems, but none for SC. It'* not so much the cost as laying on cold asphault for an hour :( Thanks.
