be sure the sender is the correct unit suit the gauge

early 70's rx uses different sender to late 70's / early 80s , and different again to s4,, and to s5

using incorrect sender on incorrect dash usually throws things out a lot..

for example.. a 1st gen rx7 sender put into an rx2 or rx3 will put the gauge to 3/4 at normal running temp

I have always wondered why my temp gauge would go up that high in my rx2.didnt think there was a difference from the oldschool units to the rx7 units.
Good info to know.

Install an aftermarket mechanical gauges for a second and better opinion. Back in the 90s, i fried a motor due to malfunctioning factory gauges.

It could be an air bubble.
