Normally it's on the thermostat housing at the front of the engine.(I have also seen some models with a second sensor on the l/r of the cylinder head) but the therm housing is best bet!!!

Peugeot 307 1.4 2004 temp gauge isn't lifting? Oil ok water ok dash giving an alarm sound off?

Have the system pressure tested first, next any rust is bad news, it usually means that you have a seeping head gasket, the combustion gases are very corrosive and that causes the coolant to turn rusty fairly quick. To verify the engine is reaching proper temperature use a manual gage, if it is then check the gage sending unit for proper resistance value. That gunk you call Mayo is oil mixed with water in most cases.

My 1990 k1500 temp gauge shows max temp all the time even if I unplug it from the sensor

you may have a temp sending unit for the temp gage, one wire and then a separate cts sensor that sends info to the computer, two wires.

With the one wire unit, take the wire loose, key on, see if any voltage on the wire, use digital multimeter. If no voltage, it could be wiring circuit or gage itself.

Water temp gage sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't

Likely the temp sending unit has failed. They aren't very expensive. One on 4.0 engine is on the thermostat housing but don't know which engine you have.
Blower problem could be the resistor pack but not sure exactly where it is on yours, it is always on the heater box and generally looks like a flat fiber plate with four wires going to it.

What is the check gauges light

CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Cooling fan wont work

The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.
