Mine was a bad gauge. You would get an engine under temperature code if the coolant
was too cold when driving. Also, if it blows heat, then it's not the T-stat. You can buy
gauge replacement kits on eBay. You can buy a cluster, then you devalue the car if you
do not get the mileage put into the replacement, but it would be a good time to upgrade
to the 6-gauge cluster, with the readout. You need the three button module too, but people
are selling them cheap enough on eBay. Might be able to get a MyColor cluster too...

THANK YOU!!! Iím so happy you replied. You are the only one who has ever posted the same exact problem and you hadnít been on here in so long, I thought this was a long shot. I searched and searched. This really threw my engine shop since my wires once had a break and were reconnected multiple times. I will replace the cluster. Thank you so much for replying to me. 😁😘
