About how much would you estimate the repair cost to replace a fuel gauge on a '97 Buick LeSabre? The indicator doesn't move at all. Thanks!

Well it could be gauge or the sender in the fuel tank, if sender you will have to drop tank and most senders are not available as a seperate part, they must be purchased as an assy. With new fuel pump.

It's hard to give a estimate when we don't know if it's the gauge for sure.I would say more then likely it's the fuel sending unit in the gas tank. But with out trouble shooting it we won't know for sure.
