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.

The holy water comment, well....I'm sure you get the jist of it by now.

Someone here should have something more useful to tell you though.
