If the motor not overheating,then does the gauge go up a few min. after starting up, if so check temp. sen.unplug it if gauge goes down change it,if not check wiring circuit,for idle pro blem if you dont have check engine light on,could just need tune up,if light is on,check code it will point at problem area.

Hi, take the connector off the temp sensor, turn the key on, and have someone watch the gauge while you insert a paperclip to short the terminals together inside the connector. If the gauge goes from one extreme to the other when the terminals are connected, the cluster is probably OK. It may just be that both sensors are bad.

1996 corvette didn't pass emissions codes po117 and po300 i just put new engine n tune up what could be wrong now


p0300 is usually a random cylinder miss-fire code, and i think that p0117 is coolant temperature sensor? Try replacing the sensor, could also be the reason for the other code, as a malfunctioning coolant temp sensor will affect engine timing.

Temp guage not registering


Probably the sensor. I think you can test by removing the wire to the sensor and shorting to ground (with the ignition on). I believe it will show HOT when the wire is grounded. Perhaps an auto parts store can test the sensor if you take it in, or just get a new one to try. I doubt they're very expensive.

Temp guage in red' dummie light on engine not hot


Sounds like a faulty sensor, if the actual temp is 195/215. The ICM is processing the information it receives from the sensor and performs accordingly. A complete diagnostic scan would be helpful in determining the proper repairs needed to correct the problem.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

Temp guage dont read


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.
