First is the gas gauge , this sounds like the display is bad so i would start of with the display, the display is not clear so start with that first.

Why is my gas gage reading empty after I installed new fuel pump module in 97 deville

Sounds like you didn't hook up the sender wires, or for whatever reason, the float in the gas tank is sticking.

Fuel pump is making a noise. Also when we put any amount of gas in tank it doesn't seem to want to start

first off, it seems that you may have two issues at once. 1) the noise may be from water in the tank from condensation (winter time and not filling up all the way) run some gas drier with a full tank to see if that helps. or there may be dirt of some kind in your tank clogging up the pick-up line/ sock/ filter. in that case, change the fuel filter(s) and or wait til the dirt gets filtered out of the tank.
Also, you may want to have a pressure test done to see if the fuel pump is going bad, if the noise is worse when it is hot outdoors and there is not much fuel in the tank and there is a "buzzing" sound from the pump, then the pump is likely going bad.

2) it sounds like you may have a loose connection to the fuel level sender (usually at the unit on the tank itself) I'm not familiar with this model myself as far as getting at the wiring for the sender, but it should be available in your Haynes/ Chilton, etc. manual.

Good Luck!!

1993 Grand Marquis fuel gauge problem

Not sure what your asking but the fuel gage sending unit is in the gas tank. Most problems with fuel gages that read incorrectly are there. It may need to be replaced.

Gas gage is not working rite

The most common cause of a erratic or incorrect fuel gage reading is a defective fuel gage sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace the sending unit requires that the fuel tank be removed from the car and then the fuel pump module which contains the sender be replaced.

Gas gauge doesn't work

The no. 1 cause of the gas gage not reading or reading incorrectly is that the sending unit for the gas gage inside the gas tank is defective, this is esp true on older cars and trucks, In order to replace the gas gage sending unit requires the gas tank be removed.
