Dash Temp Guage Stays Low
My dash temp gauge is staying on cold. I have just finished replacing the temp sensor, (on the side of motor) temp switch (near thermostat), and thermostat. I even tested the plug by bypassing the sensor and the temp gauge went all the way to the right.
The motor gets hot but I noticed that I can easily squeeze the coolant hose and there is no resistance. I am at a loss. Can anyone help?
