Temperature guage going crazy!
This is my first post. I'm (recently) the proud owner of a '99 156 V6 and I love it, I can't believe the sound. Thanks to this forum I've already replaced the MAF which has cured the problem of it sometimes cutting out when the revs dropped too low, so thanks all for that.
When I got the car the temperature guage on the dashboard did what it liked, slowly swaying from 0 to half-way, and back to 0 etc. However starting this week, it has completely gone crazy and flips from 0 to max and back again in less than a second, flipping from left to right really quickly and constantly, making an annoying ticking noise as it bounces off the stop and the guage wall.
I've searched the forum but couldn't find anything similar. Do we think it is the guage itsself or the temperature sender?
Any suggestions welcome, thanks in advance.
