You need to have the gauge system checked with a variable resistance checker, that way you would find out if it was the gauge or the sender or a combination of both, the gauge will respond to different settings on the tester, if it doesn't respond properly it would have to be replaced, if it responds properly then the sender is at fault. The most common failure is the sender but you need to find out for sure.
