Question about 1992 Nissan Pickup
When the vehicle is first started (cold engine - 6 cyl) both fuel and temperature guages move to extreme right far side. After driving approximately 10-15 miles the guages adjust back to the proper readings.
Have your alternator output checked; the voltage regulator might be failing.
You can check it easily across the battery terminals.
You shouldn't have any more than ~ 14.3 volts at any revs., and about 12.6 with the engine off.
If it checks out OK, the next step would be to access any plugs to the instrument panel, pull the connectors apart and then replug them.
You may have a flaky ground under the dash too.
