How does one determine whether or not he has a bad temp gauge or a bad temp sending unit???...

A cheap way would be to remove the Therm, toss it in a pot, boil it with a thermometer in the H2O. See when it opens, reinstall it and watch the gauge. Hey! I said cheap, not fast!

Thanks for the advice guys but unfortanently it didn't help...this is due partly to myself and a understanding...The understanding concerns that I don't need to fix the thermostat...The problem was from me becuase I forgot to state that this is not a stock gauge but one that was added one...I have heard about gounding something out to check???...Is this where I begin???...

Ya.......ground the wire that goes to the sender......the needle should peg.........remove the wire......the needle should be at zero. If this ocurs...........$hitcan the sender........if it does not do this ....and after checking out the wire and the supply........$hitcan the gauge.

Re: BadGauge Web Site

Taz and anyone else interisted.
The "CJ Gauge & Sender Diagnostics" page on the Off-Road Tech section is out of date. Due to the recent shake up in that organization. There have been no updates to my article posted there.
For the most up to date and accurate version, please bookmark it's originating address location.
