My temp gauge started acting up the last few times I was able to drive the car. It would be running at operating temp, then drop to minimum for a second or two, then go back to normal.
The time it would stay at minimum began lasting longer and longer. Now it won't come off min at all (except, of course, when it does the normal starting high peg).
I did a search to test the sending unit.
I found that the pin for the gauge should read about 1365 ohms @ 100*F and the other pin should read open (the one for the light).
BOTH pins read open all the time.
Does this mean that the sender has gone bad?
I need to fix this before going to the club meeting Saturday. Any help would be appreciated.
