The temp gauge on my revived 86 2M6 SE pegs to max shortly after start up. A search found this fix:
www.michiganfieroclub.com/files/tempgauge.pdf.
Would like to know if anyone has implemented the wiring changes described and had successful results.
Don't want to pull the dash apart if it doesn't work
Thanks

Yes. Many, many people have performed this "fix" with much success.

Here's another how-to for reference.

I did this repair and my gauge still reads what it did but my temp gauge works like it should now. Temp gauge never goes over the 2 little notch.

It works. You only need to pull the cluster.

What I found that worked best for me was too just "lengthen" the wires behind the gauge cluster instead of trying to take the pin out of the harness and stretching the wire across to the other side of the cluster.

I snipped both wires in question leaving myself plenty of room to play with. I used two different colored wires to avoid confusion but this of course is not necessary. Just a matter of a few quick solder joints and heat shrink. Button it all up and you're done.

I also did this mod, works great. My temp needle would get stuck because it pegged so hard but everything is OK now.
