My gas gauge doesn't always work, and jumps back and forth. is this a simple fix?

Check your battery connections for tightness or possibly corrosion. Also, if you didn't hook the negative cable directly to the battery or engine block, you could have fried the negative (ground) wire to the body of your vehicle which would cause all kinds of weird problems with accessories. Check this connection to the body, also. (It's usually a short black wire from the negative side of the battery bolted to the body metal.)

Could Rear end damage from a wreck cause my speedometer and gas gauges to stop working?

You must understand that collision stresses the ENTIRE vehicle. Just because it was hit from behind, does not mean that there is not collision damage in the front. I had a vehicle in my shop several years ago that was hit from the rear. The engine began knocking shortly after. It turned out that the collision had jarred the engine hard enough to cause the crankshaft to crack. This type of damage is extremely rare, but can happen. Trying to convince the insurance company that this was collision damage was a real trick.... On the other hand, fuel sending unit failures are quite common (without any collision) and can cause your fuel gauge to stop working.

The only way to determine if your problems are caused by the collision would be to first diagnose the problem. Only then can it be determined if the current failure is caused by collision or possibly caused by a more commonly known failure type.

2003 cavalier was in a front end collision. I don't know were the switch is to turn the fuel back on.

Chevrolet vehicles don't have an inertia switch, the only American manufacturer to use these is Ford.

The gas tank on the passenger side wont pump gas to the carb. but the gas tank on the drivers side works good so im not for sure what to do to fix it. i cant find the fuel filter!! 1983 chevy

In 1983 the fuel filter was in the carburator. Unscrew the fuel feed line that ges into the frnt of the carb and then undo the really big nut. Inside the nut is the fuel filter. Pay attention to how it goes in spo you don't get it backwards when you put it back together.
There is also a sock on the fuel pick-up in the tank.
Your problem probably is in the tank selector valve. It is mounted on the inside of the frame on the passenger's side at the front of the tanks. I don't know if there is any way to fix it except to replace it. I never bothered, just used the tank that worked. The GM service manual doesn't show any repair procedures for it. Hope this helps.

I was in a front end collision last month which led to a new waterpump and radiator. ever since then my coolant has been "disappearing" (also the temperature gauge in my car doesn't work). Initially I...

The temperature indicator doesn't work because the temperature sensor is not connected or faulty.
The only other way your coolant can dissapear is thru boiling so most likely the fan isn't working - check it if it has power, its control sensor and relay are doing their job and the fan itself is in working order.

The gas gauge is not registering when gas is put in the van

I don`t know this particular car but I don`t think the dissy has anything to do with the fuel gauge. Did the fuel gauge work perfectly before?? If so, you`ll probably find that you`ve disturbed a connector which goes to the sender unit. It`s very easy to do, I`ve done it myself and it`s VERY annoying to find you`ve sorted one fault only to find that you`ve caused another fault. Just go over everything that you`ve touched and done to the car. Did you short something out when you were replacing the cap, if so, you`ll probably find that a fuse has failed and it`s not just the gauge that doesn`t work. All the best, Ian
