Noise is usually the stepper motor, you can pick them up on Ebay, as far as false readings you will have to fix the stepper motor first.

do I need to replace all the stepper motors or just the fuel gauge. all the other gauges are fine

It might be a good idea to replace them all while your in there, that way the units all start out new. just make sure you follow the directions.
