No but it sounds like you need to have a talk with the in-tank fuel pump.

We have an anomaly with our other buick (similar fuel pump) that when it's parked nose down (not level or nose up) the fuel tank if below about 1/3 actual fill will read empty and sound the warning.

I wish the beancounters woulda left the fuel pump module the heck alone.

How are your motor mounts? Engine rocking maybe causing a small exhaust leak making it sound funny?
