Two responses to this.

Consult cable. I matched my coolant temp sensor to the gauge above to verify. Both are BANG on accurate.

Went to the stealership this morning and purchased a oem thermostat. Now I have to get my compression tested ASAP.

test your thermostat before installing - tie a string around it and boil it in water. if it popps open, great. use it.

I've had more than one thermostat directly from the mfg be faulty!!!

I got it started again about an hour ago, but it needed to be revved to stay alive. If compression is Fubar - Is there a chance that more damage will occur if I started it by revving it constantly and driving it up on driveway? This might be a dumb question. LOL!!!
