It sounds to me like either you are low on coolant or your cooling system has air trapped in it.u must remember steam is hotter than water.

Why does temperature gauge only reach a little past half?


Larry, If the cooling system was not bled properly, the temperature could fluctuate up to 3/4 then normally back down to 1/8 on temp gage.
If your gage is just staying a little over half when running, that is actually normal and acceptable.

Smoke from engine and clugging noise then cuts off


I would trust the smoke and noise from the engine rather than a faulty temp gauge. have you checked the coolant level in the radiator and not the reservoir. The temp gauge will not give you any indication of overheating if there is no coolant to make it work

It's very possible that the gauge itself is bad, it is common for the stepper motor that drives the gauge to go bad.

Temp gage reds hot for a second and returns to


I would check the wiring to the temp sensor. Make sure that it's connected properly. If so, and it's still giving you that problem, I would replace the sensor. (That's of course assuming you can't live with it's eccentricity/quirk.)

Temp gauge off charts


Are you mistaking the engine temp sensor for the engine temp sending unit? The temp sensor is for the fuel injection system and the temp sending unit is for the gauge. If you asked for a sensor thats what they sold you. You need to ask for a sending unit.
