If it doesn't move, the problem probably exist with the sending unit. Unfortunately, the work required to get to it may not be worth the trouble. First you must remove the unit from the the fuel tank. This requires removing the tank-major undertaking; estimated at $500. Once the unit is out of the tank, open the casing and clean it thoroughly-debris is the most likely culprit for it not working. Re-assemble and install.

For the fuel gauge? In the gas tank on the fuel pump.

There is no fuel pump shut off switch on a Pontiac Firebird. Instead, it has a fuel pump relay under the hood in the power distribution box.

The fuel pump in any car is tricky, using its diagram can make the repairs easier. The diagram for a 1995 Pontiac Firebird fuel pump can be found in its maintenance manual.

Does it crank? do you have spark? fuel?

Most of the time it is the sending unit inside the fuel tank. This is a single pump. sensor assembly. Drop the tank and replace the pump and sensor.

i have the same problem in my car, the fuel gage doesnt work and i have to go by miles to fill up, the problem is, is there is a floater in the gas tank which measures how much gas u have in ur tank, that is prolly bad, but it also costs alot of $$$, u have to drop to gas tank to get to it.

You don't want to know, If you are asking this question you should take the car to a shop and have them do it as the rear axle and exhaust both have to come out of the car.

It's located in the fuel tank. You need to remove the tank. Make sure you replace the fuel strainer, filters. Make sure the relay isn't bad before you begin. Good luck.
