Under the battery tray is the pull-in cabble and vacuum diaphragm for the front axle. Check the diaphragm for any holes and see if the cable is moving freely. Sometimes I have seen acid from the battery drip down and burn through the diaphragm. I have also seen the cables rust up and not move because of the poor location of this unit. I have also seen internally in the axle the collar for the locking gear break so check both places.

How to fix the gas gage on a 1995 gmc Sonoma ?

The problem is probably in your tank. The wiper on GM's has a habit of wearing through then the gas guage won't work. It is part of the fuel pump assembly.

I have a 1995 gmc sonoma,2.2. i have the radiator and overflow box filled with coolant. the truck will overheat.the temp.gage goes all the way to hot

Check the thermostat and also check to make sure that the fan clutch is working correctly. My guess would be the thermostat is stuck and is causing the vehicle to over heat

Gas gage does not work and truck will not start

It's probably the wiring to the fuel pump. Remove the wiring from the top of the fuel tank and clean the connections (it's a lot easier with the bed off)

Had a similar issue with my 99 Cherokee, after a lot of money wasted at Jeep dealer with the issue returning after a few days. Jeep replaced the gages, the wiring harness for that led to the gages twice. Took it to a friend of a co-worker shop and he made a custom wiring harness, the issue was the wiring harness was over heating and then failing.
