Question about 1996 Pontiac Grand Am
The temperature guage does not read in a 96 pontiac grand am and the computer reads that the temp sensor is bad but that has been replaced and it still dont work, and once the motor is warmed up the car wont start unless you press the gas as it turns over.
U are talking about two different sending units, one is the Engine Coolant Temp sensor, the other is the temp guage sender, sounds like you have a bad thermostat, if the engine doesn't reach the proper operating temp it will set a code for the engine coolant temp sensor, and the guage will not move or move very little, replace your thermostat and both problems will go away.
