Did you put any teflon tape around the sending unit's threads?

That is how my gauge gets its ground, via the sending unit. Once I removed the tape, it started working just fine.

What guages did you go with?

How long did you drive it? If it was around the block or just a minute down the road, you need to drive it longer.

Is the accu sensor on the fwd line that has the short piece of black hose on it?

Cruising down the highway with temps 60°F or below it doesn't read anything for me. Lately with the temps around 80°F I see around 140° cruising down the road. When i come up to a long stop light I can physically watch the gauge rise in temp. Tons of stop and go traffic it will sit around 200°F but drops right down when i get moving at a decent speed. When I drove through Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in TX, the outside temps where in the 90's and I saw as high as 220° putting around at walking speed with the A/C on.

What is the highest temp you have seen?
