The fuel pump has little to do with the fuel level sensor. I could attach some photos but my computer with the pictures is in the computer hospital....You have a bad sending unit...depending what is wrong it might be fixable or you may need a replacement

The sending unit is part of the fuel pump module. Sounds like an intermittent bad ground. Probably at or close to the fuel pump plug. The Delphi FT0041 is correct for your car. HTH. -Jim

Oops, I meant FG0041. Sorry! -Jim
