: temperature gauge going crazy!!

11-28-07, 11:42 AM
My temperature gauge has been acting very strange lately. When I'm driving it'll show the car heating up then all of a sudden drop all the way down. When I'm idling the temp goes back up but when I accelerate the gauge drops to the bottom. Sometimes it doesn't work at all. It just started doing this when it started getting colder around here. I was wondering if this is a electrical issue or my thermostat. Thanks.

most likely is the temp sender. i had the same problem with my temp gauge not working at all until i check it and discover that the single wire was loose, put it back and it's working again, no problems so far.
