    Hey, just this morning when I got up and started my truck and drove for about 20 minutes, I had noticed that my temp. guage hadn't moved at all, what could have caused this and what can I do to fix it, do I just need to replace the gauge or is there other stuff to it?

    Try checking your connections, you may just have a loose wire behind your gage.. it happens. BTW, I just figured out your username...THATS A GOOD ONE...

    Could also be the wire coming off the block-mounted sender unit........mine did that all the time when off-roading due to the bouncing.........replaced the end and crimped it to stay on, problem went away. Make sure the wire going from it up to the gauge didn't hit your header/exhaust manifold and burn through too.......

    I would say the same the other guys have said check out the connection first before spending money. I like your user name. It took me a minute but figured it out, hey a little slow.

    I would check the fuse, then all the connections first.
