Temp gauge doesn't work. fuse or?

The gauges should get power from the same circuit. So if the gas gauge works, the temp gauge should have power.
Could be the sending unit on the engine, or the gauge itself.

The temperature gauge on my 98 mazda stopped working, just sits a the cold end.

This could be a few different things. First off I would make sure it's full of coolant. Low coolant will not let the temp sensor function correctly. The temp sending unit could be bad, or possibly unplugged. Hope this helps, TJ

Hi, I have the following problems that suddenly started to occur on my 1997 Mazda MPV. 1. Every time i turn the ignition the car deposit what looks like blue smoke this is happening regularly now. 2....

1. This is probably the result of oil leaking into the cylinder through a bad valve stem seal. 2. As long as the coolant reservoir is not indicating a loss of coolant (ie the reservoir is not low) and the cooling system is properly blead than I would not worry about the intermittent slight increase in coolant temp. 3. I would first try greasing the track and regulator. 4. does the key lock move freely?

The temp gauge goes from cold to hot in one min of driving and engin starts to overheat has plenty of coolant in

It sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed. You can remove the thermostat and test it on a stove with a pan of water, to see if the thermostat opens before the water boils in the pan.

Car stalls changed spark plugs still wont start

Not a lot to go on! Remove the distributor cap and see if turns when the engine is cranked. My guess is the timing belt is shot. Frankster016
