Is there an access panel for the fuel pump on a 95
Hello magarrrcr: My name is Roger and I will help you. Yes you can gain access through the trunk area. Remove the spare tire cover,jack and tire. Pull back the trunk liner. Remove the fuel sender access cover.Disconnect the fuel lines and the power wires. Remove the retainer ring and lift out the unit. It may be necessary to rotate unit as you remove it. NOTE (module will jump up when you remove the lock ring). Replace the pump and reverse procedure to reinstall the pump. Also beware that fuel system may be under pressure and is flammable. Watch for fuel spillage upon removal of the sending unit. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Lossing water but you
It may be a bad radiator cap or the top radiator hose is loose or worn out. Water may be coming out as steam which is difficult to trace. If you have white smoke at the back or check your engine oil for water content, your head gasket may have gone bad. If you have coolant mix that at 50/50 ratio into the radiator. It is colored green or pink and should be easier to trace to make sure the leaks are not in the other parts of the cooling system. It could be on the other hose, radiator or the engine.

Car will not start. I can spray starting fluid in
FUEL SENDING UNIT
there is an access hole under the carpet in the back right corner of the trunk. access this compartment and have someone else turn the key but not all the way to start the engine to check if the unit is operational it is easy to tell because you will hear it. humming you will probably need to replace it- here and here are detail instructions on replacing a pump similar to yours.
Best of luck

My battery keeps dying its
something in the "always on" circuitry is drawing too much current. find the fuse for the power door locks and remove it and see if that helps. power door locks seem to go bad and cause this in a lot of GM products. if that does not do it, then you are going to have to pull the fuses one by one and leave it sit overnight until you find the magic fuse. when you find that it starts, something on that circuit is bad, and you are going to have to live without it or pay to get it fixed.

I just brought used
Regular is not causing your problem, while it is recommended that you use premium fuel, it will adjust timing for regular-your issue is something else. If it stalls at a light, is there any check engine light? Things that might cause this are Idle Air Control valve, the Throttle Position Sensor-it might also just need a good old-fashioned tune-up, plugs, plugs wires, air filter, oil change. fuel filter-since you just bought it, you have no real way of knowing what is good and what isn't, so you should either find a honest mechanic or do the work yourself. I have a 2001 Aurora, they are great cars and have great engines, but they can be a challange to work on, so first determine if the basic stuff is good-air filter, clean the throttle body, if the plugs and plug wires are old, change them. that's a good start, from there if you need an IAC or TPS, local junk yards are full of them (they use Caddy components too) so you can save a lot that way.

How often should my 1995
you should have a tune-up done every 30-40 thousand miles(50-60 thousand kill).this is probably shorter than what a manufacture will say because they market low cost of repairs over time.but when the plugs are left in too long they will(can) seize in the heads causing more aggravation and money to fix.

My battery will not keep
You may or may not need to replace the battery. To check if it is a drain from one of the systems on your car; unhook the battery overnight and see if it kept the charge till morning. If it is still charged in the morning then it is not the battery.

Drives fine for about 5
This could be due to a fuel system problem, perhaps a clogged fuel filter. Since any debris in your gas tank would be settled to the bottom for the initial startup, the fuel pump picks up clean gas and has no problem supplying the injectors. As you drive, the circulation of the gas from the tank through the filter could cause the filter to plug up with debris, gradually losing power until fuel pressure is not sufficient to keep the car running. Try replacing the fuel filter and running some fuel injector cleaner through with your next fill-up.

My car is overheating while
turn your a/c on which should send signal to cooling fans to operate, regardless of engine temperature. check for voltage on cooling fan wires. if voltage is not present check relays and fuses located passenger side front of vehicle under hood. if voltage is present, then i would replace the cooling fans

Oil light keeps coming on
these 'shortstar' engines are well known for low oil pressure at idle, so look first to be sure it is full on the dipstick-it takes about 7 quarts to be full. If you are using 5w-30 oil (recommended), consider changing the oil and refilling with 10w-40, and buy a good filter like purolator Pure One, or a K&N, Wix or Delco. If theis happens even when cold, you have a problem that will be a lot more expensive-oil pump is going or gone, or you have worn bearings and this is going to require a rebuild of a used engine, very expensive.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY ON THE OLDS 95 SO I
Be sure the ignition key is not in the ignition, and the headlight switch is in the "Off" position.
Locate and remove the two headlight assembly screws on the top rail of
the headlight assembly. Use the nut driver to remove them.
Place a rag between the headlight
assembly and the bumper to protect the paint.
Wrangle the assembly outward. There is a guide pin behind the assembly
on the fender side that holds it in place. This needs to be popped out
of its socket in order to remove the headlight assembly. Pull slightly
outward from the side, then forward and away from the car.
Locate the correct bulb socket (high-beam/low-beam). Disconnect the wire connector using the flathead screwdriver.
Turn the socket 1/4-turn counterclockwise to remove the socket from the headlight assembly. Remove the old bulb.
Insert the new bulb into the headlight assembly, and turn clockwise to
lock into place. Be careful not to touch the glass bulb of the new
socket. This could degrade headlight performance.
Reconnect the wire connector to the bulb. Test the light before
replacing the headlight assembly, then turn off the lights again.
Reinsert the headlight assembly, making sure to align the guide pin
into the socket. Replace the screws and tighten.

My power steering fluid is
Hi and welcome to FixYa!
Where does it leak? On the rack and pinion or on the power steering tank? If it's from the tank then it's just gonna be a hose problem will surely need replacement. If it's underneath the rack and pinion then the oil seals are surely worn out. This will need to be pulled out to gain access to the rack and pinion oil seals. Once they are replaced it will surely stop the leak.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
