Colin - The '86 CGT I just sold to a friend (and new lister - Hi Chris!) had the
same exact problem when I first bought it. Lived with it for a while, then
invested the 25 bucks in a new temperature sender from TPC. Problem solved.
Except for the remorseful "kicking myself" for not doing it sooner.
Call Rod. If it's something else, you're only out less than $30, and you'll have
a good sending unit anyway - they all seem to have very limited lifespans.
My $0.02. Hope this does it for you. Great car you bought. You should really
like it once you're finished bringing it back to life!
and maybe one or two other cars... ;^)
