keep your posts together or it's going to get confusing.

you should have two sensors

a 1 wire sensor for the gauge

a 2 wire sensor for the computer

which did you replace

Working on a 1995 beauville 3/4 ton van . 350 Just cant get the temp gauge to work. Checked gauge with new and the sensor next to the thermostat housing. Both show good.


Thanks for the interest.

Make sure you are changing the right part! Typically there is a sender for the gauge and a coolant temperature sensor.

Have the dealer point out the right part for you on their parts microfilm.

The temp sender for the gage is located in the cylinder head most likely on the right side behind the exhaust manifold.
Following is the test procedure for checking the sender and gage:

TEST
Disconnect the engine coolant temp sender connector. Ground the dark green wire at engien coolant temp sender connector.

RESULT
Temp gage indicates HOT
ACTION
Repair or replace temp sender

RESULT
Temp gage does not indicate hot
ACTION
Locate and repair open in DK GRN wire if wire is good replace temp gage.
Hope this helps ya,
Billy
