Probably the temp gauge itself. Most of the time it doesn't have a problem but sometimes they do go bad. Did the car ever overheat prior to changing the solenoid?

The P0218 Code is primarily intended to indicate a faulty thermostat.
Have the thermostat replaced
Other possible causes that could trigger this code would be:
Low engine coolant level
faulty cooling fan
faulty coolant temperature sensor
faulty intake air temperature sensor

there are 3 cooling fan reays in a 98 aurora and they are computer controlled. the low speed fan relay should turn on when the ecu detects a temp of 229 degrees and should turn off when the temp has dropped to 216 degrees. it is best to check the temp with a computer monitor so you can see what the computer is reading. If you turn the a/c on you can see if the fans are operating. If they don't come on with the a/c you may have a problem with the high side a/c switch. A bad thermostat can cause the fans to come on late.
