When this happen,did you try to jump start it with another car?And if so did it crank and run?

No it would not run at all but it would crank i had to stay in the gas to keep it running

Sound,s like you may need a set of plug,s in it fouled plug,s will cause it to flood with gas and not crank,and even when running will run ruff.The cranking issue when guage,s go crazy,is a weak battery,or cable,s going to starter and the body ground,

One more thing to add,the starter will do this all so,meaning the eratic guage jumping,starter may be going bad.
