the cooling system has to be bled. Did you bleed the cooling system ? first you fill the radiator with coolant and water. Then turn on the engine and and run to operating temperature. Most cars have a bleeding screw located at the thermostat housing. Turn of the engine and with a fairl long screwdriver turn the screw counter clockwise and remove the air until coolant is the only thing coming out. Refill and repeat procedure.Refill with coolant until full. Be careful not to burn yourself with the steam coming out with the air.

Although you didn't mention it, the speedometer probably bounces also. Replacing the speed sensor on the side of the transmission should solve both your problems. Good luck

oil pressure sending unit is close to oil filter.temp sending unit on front of intake.check fuses for temp sending unit and coolant temp gauges if all is good make sure grounding is good.if grounds good your gauges is faulty.

Not sure if there are two thermostats, I know of one that I changed, it sits right above the starter and right below your air box. I had the problem my guage was reading hot on a cool night so I went and popped the hood and (after cooled) opened the radiator resivoir and the results were dry as a bone. I had steam coming from the cap. if you so this be sure to slowly release the pressure from the red cap that reads HOT WARNING DO NOT REMOVE. that is where you pour the coolant/water mix.
After I did that I took it to a shop and had it flushed, cleansed and refilled.....then I was runnin a beutiful bright green. Cost about 69.99 for flush then I found out my water pump pully was locked up and not rotating (not pumping coolant). So I fixed that last night and she's runnin pretty good after 190,000 miles.
Good Luck Mazda's
