Default TJ Check Gages light

I have a 97 Wrangler 5 spd 4.0. As I was driving today the speedometer shot up to 100 mph and then dropped back to the speed I was driving (40mph). This happened a couple of times and then the check gages light came on and the volt gage dropped to 9 volts and stayed there until I turned off the engine and restarted. After I started the Jeep again the check gages light was off and the volt gage went up to 12 volts. I took it for a test drive and the the problem occured again. A couple months again I had a puddle of coolant under the Jeep and when I started it the check gages light came on and the volt gage dropped to 9 volts. I had the alternator checked at Autozone when I bought my new water pump and it checked out fine and it hasnt been a problem until now. Please give me your thoughts on what to look for and possible causes. Thank you!!
