91 Town Car - How can I tell if my temp gauge is bad. Right now

How can I tell if my temp gauge is bad. Right now it is below the cold mark and does not move but the sensor behind the gauge is war. Is there a way to test either the engine sensor or the gauge itself?

The best way to test it is to replace th sending unit.Reove the wire off the sending unit,and see if the gauge pegs out,or falls down.Then ground it,it should have the same effect.It should peg out if you ground the sening unit.When removed,it should fall.This is with the key on.If thi gauge does these things,then replace the sending unit.

How do i know my thermostat is bad?


if the heat blows cold *AND* the engine temp meter stays well below the 1/2 way mark, even after driving around town for 20 minutes or so, changing the thermostat would be the appropriate next step.

Temperature gauge is fluctuating while driving.


I'm thinking the coolnat level is low, and this might be caused by a bad head gasket - At least $800 to fix - sorry.
