Is the engine running cold? that is the usual problem, this is caused by a stuck open thermostat.

Temp.gauge not working and the fan runs constant with poor fuel economy.


The most likely cause is due to the radiator fan constantly running and the engine not getting to operating temperature, thats why your temp gauge isnt going up, check all related wiring to the cooling fan and make sure there no bare wires that could be causing a short to ground causing the fan to constantly run, secondly check the fan relay, if all of that checks out check the coolant temperature sensor because the information from that sensor tells the computer when to turn the fan on and off, if the sensor is bad it could be telling the computer the engine is hot when in fact its not.

Failed CA smog test "MIL/Check Engine Light", computer data wiped


No this is not right. If you remove the battery everything resets anyways. If they are talking about relearn procedure, it should only require 50 miles. But if the light is on than either they did something wrong, created another problem, or there was already another one existing. Have the code read and let me know what it is. I'm in Ca too and used to prep european cars for smog, so I do know what I'm looking for. How did the rest do? What were the readings(if possible)?

Have you tried replacing the overflow tank cap. These don't hold pressure as it should which will cause the temp to rise. EX: the cap rating is 15psi, and the cap has a defect which only allows the cap to hold 10-12psi. That water has to be pressurized by the cap for the water not to flow out. Also, does the temp gauge reach a high level or just the temp light comes on. This will give a better idea of the problem. If the gauge is normal but the light is on, sounds like a temperature switch is bad.

the wire from the bulb to the ecm needs to be verifed good, a easy way is to find which terminal number the ck engine light is on, and see if that pin provides a ground when the key is on. if it does, the wire may be bad, if no ground, the ecm is bad.

Temp gauge and gas gauge not working


I had the same problem with my 2001 Pontiac Montana and the intake manifold gasket. This is a major problem with these 3.4L engines, if you are in the states I'm pretty sure there is a class action law suite against GM for this. I had my manifold gasket replaced and it was about $1000 CAD. You need to get your vehicle looked at right away as this could cause major engine damage, coolant will leak into the engine and soon enough you will be replacing that too. Good Luck
