Question about 1987 Suzuki Samurai
After starting the cold engine, the temp gauge quickly rises to over the top of the readings (above hot) and stays there while driving until the engine is shut off and cools down again. It does not run hot. I replaced the sending unit and did not change anything.
There's two sending units in the intake. The little on with single prong at the t-stat housing is for the guage and the bigger one plastic connector is for ecm.
Your signal is getting grounded somewhere.

If you disconnect the guage sending unit what happens? Are you sure that there is only one sending unit, many Japanese cars use 2, one for normal zone and one for overheat, the last makes the guage quickly go to hot to alert the driver of a problem before the engine is ruined, let me know what you find.
