If you unplug temp sending unit and turn ignition on check guage. It should read all the way hot or cold. If so then replace temp sending unit.

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

93 k1500 alternator won't charge over 13.8 goes


I need more info for your problem. Never should an alternator charge over 13.8 and they will charge less depending on demand. As long as the battery voltage is above 11.5 volts the car is probably within min operating specifications.

Temperture Gage


First of all, it doesn't sound like your thermostat is working correctly to keep good hot/warm air coming , so I would change that, or have it changed for better heating inside. If you lift the hood & look in front of your radiator, On the engine side, you'll see a fan attached to, or in front of the radiator. It won't come on until the coolant temperature gauge gets up to proper operating temperature. Without getting in to too much detail, have your thermostat changed, and my guess is everything else will start working as it should, and whoever does the work, should know enough to check the fan operation when they do the thermostat.
