Oil temp gauge NEVER changes

Well, NEVER might be a lil severe, but my oil temp instantly travels to just above mid point and stays there regardless of driving conditions or outside temp.

Have people installed resistors on oil temp senders as a performance mod in the past? Do i need a new sender? Where exactly is the sender?

are you sure your not talking about the oil pressure gauge, cause those instantly move once the engine is running

I could be that stupid. I'm new to the truck. Upper left of the gauge cluster? I figured that would be temp and a dummy light would be pressure. Am I wrong?

and I AM that stupid =) The fact that the face has a "H" at the top and "L" at the bottom would mean high/low and not Hot/cold. Disregard =)

You are still right.... The gauge "should" move, because the pressure does change
from temp and RPM.... Ford decided to make it sit in one spot for some silly
reason. If the oil pressure is a little low, or high you would have no idea. It has to
be extremely low, or extremely high to make any change. All of the gauges are a
joke. If you really want to know what is going on, get a real gauge.

Fords trans temp gauge is the same, of it ever shows any movement it is already
too late.
