It's a Quadzilla. LOL They all do that. I just turned off the water temp readings in mine and watch 3 parameters.

Some say that you can solder the wire going to the temp sensor instead of using the T tap and that will fix it. On mine, it didn't make any difference.

The head gasket will probably be wearing either a little white beanie hat or a big spade-shaped hat, and your truck will likely be leaking holy water instead of coolant.
