Check your fuses if they are all good you'll need to check the wires that connect to the fuel pump for signs of damage. If they look good the problem is the float in the tank. Its probably stuck.

My gas guage is stuck on 3/4 tank being full what do i need to do to fix it

If the problem happened right after you replaced the pump, I would say the sending unit in the tank is not connected to the harness.
You could check the circuit to the gauge at the connector for the tank.

When im driving my 1999 Buick Century the gas gauge doesnt read right, it moves all the time and i never know how much gas i have. what could cause this?

I have a 1989 Park Avenue with the same problem. It's most likely a problem with the float in the fuel tank. Check and clean the wiring and connectors coming from the sending unit in the gas tank. If that doesn't help then you will need have the float and sending unit removed from the tank and replaced.

Gas guage not working

Sending unit in the gas tank. Although sounds like possible loose connection considering that it did work momentarily

If you remove the sending unit in the gas tank, move it manually by hand as u saw done earlier, the gauge on the dash should also move. As long as the sending unit in the tank isn't 'stuck' at the half full level, the gauge should register empty to full as it moves. To be honest, I'm not sure if I would bother taking the sending unit out. 1st, u must be very careful not to blow yourself up when working on the gas tank (no sparks, etc), all u really need to do is fill up your car, see how many miles a tank of gas will go (carry a can of gas with u to see how many miles before u run out). If it's 350 miles, just set the trip gauge to zero every time u fill up, and get gas every 300 miles so u don't run out. If the sending unit moves freely, everything (wiring ) is connected properly, then it probably is the fuel gauge. good luck!
