Fuel Temperature Gauge Reading Correct Or Not?

Recommended Posts

Should i trust my stock fuel temperature gauge Reading during traffic jams for long periods? It is dialing 3/4 of the gauge!! and 160°F with a laser heat gun! Anything to worry? Also when you accelerate the acceleration becomes sluggish and the car misfires.

take off the sender wire turn ign to on, it should be 0, earth sender wire and check it should be hard over on high, it could be thermostat or the sender unit, 3/4 in heavy traffic stop go sounds pretty normal but you would expect it to drop when cruising, you need to check the thermostat operation in pot of boiling water, replace it if its been in there while not expensive. Acceleration problems no clue take it to a professional I am not psychic.
