Sounds like you have a faulty sending unit which lets you know how much gas is left in your tank. First thing I would do is determine exactly where the sending unit is located on your vehicle. Some are located in the tank while others are underneath the backseat. Then, depending on what you've found out, you would have to remove the sending unit and replace wherever its location. If its in the tank, I would just hold off until the next time you replaced the entire pump, but that decision is up to you. Good Luck

Fuel gage not working

Check the work. The fuel level wiring might not have gotten plugged in. Also, if the fuel pump was a pain to get out for whatever reason, the wiring on the inside might have gotten broken off or the arm that holds the float got bent. Lastly, it doesn't happen a lot anymore but sometimes the float just sinks and stays there. The newer floats are made of foam so they tend to last.

My fuel gage works sometimes and sometimes its all over the place and now my tempature gage is doing the same

I am no expert, But:

The sending units could be dirty, both wires could be touching where insulation has failed if both are in same wiring harness, or both sending units have went bad.

2 beeps when stopping or turning corners 1999 Durango also message check gauges. sometimes fuel shows empty when fuel tank is full and gauges shut down. restart corrects gauge problem

sounds like pcm. When this happens, does it restart right away or do you have to wait? If you have to wait, try wiggling the 3 connectors on the pcm ( located on the inner right fender under the hood). If you do this with the key still on, you should hear the bing again and the fuel gage should come up again. If this works you need a new or rebuilt pcm.

The fuel gage works some times and some time it dont ..the gas tank can be full and the gage show empty are maybe half full ....after driving 15 or twenty may go to the correct level

This problem is caused by only thing, it is a defective fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank. To replace this part requires the fuel tank be removed from the vehicle.
