I had a water leak on my 1996 GMC K1500 and ran hot. Fixed problem truck running good, but the temperature gauge is pegged high even with a new sensor. How do I fix the gauge?

Pull off the negative battery cable and unplug the sensor. See if the gauge needle returns to normal. Try tapping on the cluster to unstick the needle. No luck? Replace the temperature gauge.

Heater is not getting hot and the temperature needle isn't working

First I would have said your thermostat is stuck open. But if the engine is overheating and the gauge reads cold the cooling system is probably empty. Or there may be alot of air pockets in the cooling system instead of all liquid coolant.
If the system was full and the water pump failed the heater might not work but the gauge would read hot.

Having heating problems, don't get hot enough and/or quick enough

Hello sounds like the thermostat is stuck open. This device opens and shuts depending on the temperature of the engine. When the engine gets to a certain temperature it will open allowing hot water to circulate to the heater matrix which warms up the car interior. As yours is possibly stuck open the cold water is just being circulated, hence blowing cool air. You should notice the temperature gauge stays very low unless you are stuck in traffic where it will rise. This is a cheap fix so no need to worry.

Engine temp guage shows cold

Let the truck run for about 15 minutes. If the engine temperature does not come up turn the heater on and check to see if the air coming out is hot or cool. If it is hot the engine's thermostat is operating fine and most likely the problem is with the temperature sending unit for the gauge. If the air is cool the thermostat is stuck open. Try replacing the thermostat if the air is cool.
