  1. Sounds like your engine temp sensor or the wiring from the sensor or the cylinder temp sensor/wiring.

    The engine should have a sensor for the engine and one for the gauge.

    What was the exact code you found when you hooked up the diagnostic computer? This should help us narrow it down. Post it below in the comments.
