Don't do that. Get the entire dash assembly from a wrecking yard and use Ford parts. it's possible that the voltage regulator in the dash is defective: that runs those gauges.
Temp sender could be bad,also. What '98 Ford.

SOURCE: 1970 Ford F100 Gas Gauge Not Working

It may be the sending unit in the tank that needs replacing. Here's how you can check: Turn the key on and disconnect the sender unit at the gas tank. Ground the sender unit's wire with a jumper wire from the truck's harness to ground. Watch the gauge. If the gauge on the dash is good, grounding the sender wire will cause the gauge needle to react and should move to full. This would indicate a new sending unit is required. If the gauge doesn't move when the sender unit is grounded, the gauge is bad and needs replacing. Pull the instrument cluster out to replace the gas gauge. Likely any old ford gas gauge might work-back then, there were not so many production changes.

its probably the gauge in the tank if they put the pump in and not moved the wiring when fitting it get court on the float so does not move, had this before, but if it been like this for a year i would remove the gauge as its not been moving about to keep the resistance board clean so would need to be cleaned up, oil spray and a cotton bud should clean it up ok with out damaging the board.

98 ford wind star running hot


Warm the engine up to operating temperature. Does the upper radiator hose get warm? If no, then cange the thermostat. If yes, then the thermostat is working fine. On the thermostat housing, there is a sensor. Some engines have 2 sensors. One goes to the computer and the other goes to the temp needle in the dash. Unplug the harness and put a jumper wire in the harness. Turn the key to on, and see if the temp needle goes up. Which ever harness causes the needle to go up, replace that sensor. Hope this helps.
