I whole heartily agree Scott. But the gauge being the
problem is like way down the list. Could all so be the
Serp driven fan bearing, t-stat like Andrew suggested,
 The IC triggers the rad fan. If the gas & coolant
gauge's aren't working then the rad fan doesn't kick

 But I think Dag has a 4.2 car?..memory loss..but I've
found the 4.2 clusters not to exsibit the same IC
wakyness as the early 3.6 cars.

 But it is a good idea to test all the system
parts..it get"..or just "toss parts" at the car till
it's fixed.s expensive when you try to "shot gun

 Maybe take a look at this Dag....
