Fault in the fuel sensing rheostat in th tank , it can be faulty dur to an open resistance or the floating tank can be damaged.
It must be taken out and cheked with a meter to show the variable resistance. if not change.
check the lead to the dash board guage if there is wiring or connection issue the meter can be faulty.

My gas hand is going a little crazy, it will go to full and stay a while then move to empty, and I just put a new fuel pump and sender in it, what should I do now ?


I can only think of two possibilities:
1) The Ground Wire (goes from the sending unit in the fuel tank to the frame of the car) is not getting a good connection or
2) The fuel gauge in the dashboard is bad.

If your description means that the change in the gas gauge is random then check the ground wire. If you have a volt-ohm meter, try checking the resistance from the wire where it attaches to the sending unit, negative side. Remove wire from sending unit first. Make sure negative wire on V_O meter is connected to frame of car. Reading should be almost zero. Anything else and the wire you are testing does not have a good connection.
If your description means that you turn the car on and the gas gauge is reading full for awhile and then goes to empty, the gas gauge is bad.

There is no reset for that and to replace the fuel guage you have to change the fuel pump, now there is another way where you can clean the guage reader (patanchio) meter with a pensil eraser and it will work.

I can give you something to try. Since the Jeep is a chrysler product, chrysler vehicle computers run off of the battery and in most cases at idle the alternater is not pushing a ramped charge. Try cleaning the battery terminals and see how it goes. I have found that it works in most cases and is the easiest to do. Let me know how it goes.

The meter will jump when the engine isn't running proper. It sounds like a fuel pump issue to be honest.
