The temp guage shows very cool. It never makes it to the N in "Normal". I had replace the T-Stat, and a temp sensor, but didn't make any difference. The sensor I had replaced is in the center of the intake, on the drivers side of the intake runners. Are there any other temp sensors? And also, when I had taken that sensor out, there was no coolant visible, it was an air space, and there was some "blackish gunk" on the tip of the sensor? Any clues or suggestions?

It's not pink......it's IRIS.
Does anyone know if there is a seperate sensor for the gauge only? I did accidently change the act sensor, but had corrected it. The gauge still reads just at the first line before the N in normal, barely make it into the normal operating range.
I found it. Thank you. The problem is taht the post of the sensor was corroded, causing a bad connection. I had cleaned it, and the gauge started reading more normal. If it seems to hang low, I'll just replace it. It was quite bad for the corrosion.
