is this what the gage is telling you or have you felt the engine it might be for this problem a bad sending unit gage is messed up or broke wire unless you have a fail safe termast in wich when they fail they fail in the open position as to not over heat the engine
good luck i wish i could help more but you are a ways away :beer:


it was the gauge...due to coolant leak... found and fixed. everything is now fixed except for oil leak. its very small as I am not losing a noticeable amount of oil however *from a novice's perspective* it appears to be dripping on the header which makes for a nice plume of smoke.

it is probly a vale cover gasket or cam seal is the head an they 8 valve g60 or have you put the 16 valve head on
i can't spell but if you stare at it long enuff it looks like a hiden vr6
