Make sure coolant is full .check thermostat .check sensor and its connection .wiggle the wiring harness as a helper watching the gauge for you.Check if there is any coolant leak.Also check if radiator cooling fan is working or not.-- But if actually the car is not overheating, then either the temperature gauge sensor wire has been disturbed and is giving a false reading or maybe your thermostat is defective. Have you added coolant lately? If so, you might have air in the cooling system that needs to be bled out. But first check your engine temperature sensor and make sure the connection is good. You can always test your coolant's actual temperature with a mechanic's thermometer.--------------

The temperature gauge goes up when car starts to HOT like its out of calibration. the engine is not overheating


check that the wire to the temp sender unit has not fallen off and is shorting out on the head/block. The power comes from the ignition switch through the gauge down to the sender unit and because the sender is a temperature controlled resistance unit the voltage is very low and so the gauge reads cold . as the temperature heats up , the resistance is decreased and so the voltage is increased though the gauge and the needle reads higher.. Hench if the gauge goes directly to hot on start up the wire is shorting out or the sender unit is faulty.

Temp gauge goes all the way to hot replaced the sending unit worked for a little while. still goes all the way to hot


Was this the original problem with the gauge? If so you have problem with a wire shorting to ground from your sending unit to the gauge. If the problem arose as a result of the sending unit replacement, the new sending unit is defective.

Running hot?


2 possible things. 1st(cheapest) you have air in cooling system. Need to burp it. 2nd(expensive) you may have blown head gasket. I tend to think air is in cooling system and your level is low.
