Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
I have a 1996 ford t-bird. The temp gauge will show hot, while the volt guage will show real low, and the oil pressure guage will be all the way topped out. Doesn't seem hot, never boiled over, never needed water/coolant. Could it be a bad ground?
Possibly, i would check the sending unit and of course the wires that connect to the temp prob. They often become worn or even short out on other wires. I suspect that the gage is telling the truth and you have a blown head gasket. Check the oil for water. Check the water level and see if you are losing water. good luck
