1st on my list is...
1.) temp control its acting up. first i lost one and now 2. air only blows on 3 and up speeds work.

2.) gas gauge. when gas is very low my light will pop on low fuel and it will read empty. if i put like 10 in the tank it reads full. never reads gas right. its either empty or full

3.) front struts make a bad plastic crunching sound when it cold outside. all summer never had a problem now when i hit bumps or dip it makes the sound....

Blower Motor Resistor. It's under the blower motor, inside the car on the passenger side right above the floor by the firewall.

Fuel Level Sender. It's attached to the fuel pump. A little more than $100 new, or you can get a used fuel pump with the level sender from a junkyard for about $80.

Fairly normal for squeaks - is it an actual crunch? If so, I'd say that your air dam is rubbing on the ground...

Had the same problem a while ago, the fix was quite cheap. 40$ canadian dollars that is. On the sending unit you can replace the float rehostat, a fairly simple job. I recommande reading the OEM manual before doing the job( releiving the fuel pressure in the lines). Took me about an hour and a half and the problem is gone. If I remember right, I did that a year ago.

Autozone or any big auto parts shop should be able to help. GM dosen't sell that part by it self or at the time I did the work anyway.

Hope it helps
