Hey CSIPD I was wondering did you take out your dash to do your gauges? Because I think I have to fix my coolant gauge by replacing it and don't know how to do it.

Would be awesome if you could help me change this gauge. I have changed so much and now I have to go to the gauge itself. I think I have to pull the dash or something. Let me know what you think I would like to get this fixed asap.

There is no way for the factory PCM to see water temp. It can see oil temp and may make a guess from there, but the auto truck do not have a water temp sender.

Okay I put in the plug though that plugs into the back of the t stat. It threads in plugs in and then that wire goes to the gauge.
