Temperature Gauge

I think my jeeps running hot but my tempature gauge isn't working. I changed my temperature sending unit and still nothing. It has to be my gauge becase if I hit the dash it will to move up slightly but only a bit.

I have two questions if it is running hot or overheating will it start to steam, or stall or do anything that I would be able to tell after driving for a while. I only think its hot because the floor behind the passenger seat gets so hot which I belive happens to alot of people, I checked under the Jeep and nothing is red hot or anything but I don't think I have a heatsheild.

and second I am having trouble finding the origial temp gauge by it self everyone I call wants to sell me the hole Jeep cluster. If I can't find an original temp gauge by itself, how hard is it to put in a aftermarket temperature gauge, and is there anything special in a gauge I need to look for hope that isn't a stupid question but I really don't know.

Thanks for anyhelp

Are you sure you changed the temp sensor for the gauge and not the one on the thermostat housing for the computer? You wouldn't be the first person to make that mistake. The heat you are describing sounds like it is coming from the exhaust and not the engine.

You can buy a temp gauge by itself almsot any where. Walmart, autozone, discount, napa. I know this becuase I just bought one and compared all these stores for price.

I will have to check which one was changed a buddy did it. I ordered it as the sending unit for the gauge. It was a like a little brass fitting that measured the coolent tempature. Hope the right one was changed, he did it while he was fixing the manafold gasket.

Although I think it may be the gauge because it will move up if I hit it, but not very far.

In my cluster the amp gauge didnīt work. I took i apart and cleaned the connectors with spirit and the gauge start working just fine. But the temp gauge didnīt work until you knocked on the instrument. I did the same thing took it apart and cleaned the connectors and it started to working just fine!
