I don't know this car, but it could be that an intermittent short in the fuel gage doesn't give enough time for the fuel needle to move, but does effect all the other dials intermittently. Or maybe the instrument panel has a ground wire that is intermittent. Good luck.

Bought a used 99 cavalier and the fuel gage goes from near empty to half and fluctuates as i drive is there a way to figure if it is the gage or the sending unit?


It is more likely to be at the fuel tank end of the system as the fuel level float is the consantly moving part and likely to become worn and give erratic readings. Replacing the sending unit should fix the problem. Also check for a loose connection in the wiring loom near the sending unit.

Fuel guage not working


Testing the fuel gage requires accessing the harness from the fuel pump and grounding the yellow / white wire with 160 ohms resistance this should cause the gage to read full, and with the circuit open you should have the gage reading empty. If the gage works in this order then the likely failure is the sending unit in the tank , and will require replacement.
