I'm sorry, I did order the sending unit. But now just this morning with 15 gallons showing, she cut out on me. Starting to think it's just the fuel pump. Of course, buying the sending unit and fuel pump should get me covered. If it happens after that, tank or electrical. I had a Cadillac guy tell me today that he suspected the fuel pump. Huh!!!!!!!!!

Has there ever been any ride height issues associated with this fueling problem? Here's why I ask. Say you have 2 adults (300lbs) riding in the front of the car with no weight in the back, so that you initially change the ride height, and you're still having the cutting out problem. Then you head to the grocery store and add a 100lbs or so of them to the trunk. Our trip is 40 miles round trip. No cutting out whatsoever occurred on the trip home. Anyone checked this?

I take it that the "Level Ride" is non op. because if it works that would have NO effect whatsoever.
Is that 300 pounds each or 300 pounds total? If it's the former...Them's a couple "O" big'uns. If it's the latter...Them's a couple "O" little'uns!:D

Or maybe one of both... I weigh more than double my wife, but together we're still just 330 pounds. :-)

that's 300lbs total. i'm going to pick up a sand bag and run awhile with that. am replacing the fuel pump, as everyone has suggested to me, and the fuel filter. the sending unit should be ok sense the guages (digital) works fine. i ran the a/c and the stereo on the trip into town and it starting surging and cutting out 10 miles down the road with 15 gal showing. we made it to town, bought groceries and headed back. the car ran like a champ however, we didn't run the a/c or stereo. the stereo has the power antenna.

Replaced the cam sensor and ignition module first. Sent the sending unit back and bought the right fuel pump. Problem solved. Running like a champ. Thanks for your thoughts guys.
