Make sure the air in the cooling system is bled out,and make sure the cooling fans are coming on,and going off on there own.If they come on,they have to go off too,when it cools down.If the cooling fans do not come on,bled the cooling system,and replace the coolant sensor,this tells the computer to activate the cooling fan relays.Also check the fuse,and the cooling fan relay.

The overflow reservoir is not the Radiator. The radiator has its own filler.

Remove the electrical connector from the sensor. Slide the proper oil sender socket over the sensor and unscrew. Reverse to install. If you don't have the right socket, rent it from an auto parts store.

The dip stick has markings on it showing the level it should be at.

There may be an access panel built into the underbody panels, either under the rear seat cushion or slightly further back in the forward trunk area. That is exactly what they are used for: to get to the fuel pump module assembly without dropping the tank. Under any padding or carpeting, a little round metal plate with screws holding it on. A lot of Buicks of those years had the access plates, a lot of cool imports have had them for years, maybe stop in and ask your friendly Cadillac service technician if your car is so equipped. It is a real time saver, so easy that every owner could do it themselves. Just like changing a fuel filter in the gas tank of your lawn mower, it's almost that easy, compared to dropping the gas tank, now that is a real job, only outgoing optimists should try. I'm retired now from such endeavors, that's all a pleasant (?)memory, but I have sure contributed a lot of vocal outpourings against rust. and the worse the frustration gets, the louder the venting. Alas, why is cursing so common and quick to thought? It took me years to understand timelessness. Yeah, that's it, take your time if you have to drop the tank, it's really not that hard a job, not like rocket science where a bolt takes days to conceptualize, a nice afternoon enjoying the late sun while you change out a ***** fuel pump.

Putting gas has nothing to do with you fuel gauge problem
Must problems to add fuel and comes out can be cause by air flow in the tank, also it is recommended to fuel with the engine turn off so the pressure from fuel pump going back to the tank will not affect the fueling , about you fuel gauge not working properly can be cause by a electrical problem such wiring or defective gauge or can be fuel sender problem with most the time it is install on fuel pump assy.

The security, antitheft or lock picture/icon is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. This link explains it pretty well.

Your fuel sending unit inside the gas tank probably needs replaced. If you are mechanically inclined, you can do this yourself. If not, and you don't like living with it, you can go to a repair shop. I am not sure what they charge right now for such a thing but I am guessing close to $150.
