When I owned my sedan, I once had a situation long before my BHG that scared the crap out of me. The gauge spiked up near the top, and was stuck there. A quick trip to my then mechanic and he quickly solved the problem. On top of the area over by the thermostat there is a little piece called the breathing water bolt. (19616-PC1-000) It has something to do with the thermostat and also the temperature gauge. It has some internal wax membrane that makes it work correctly. He had one laying around, it was put in and my problem was solved. Since then I've pulled several from junkyard cars...

are you referring to the temp gauge sending switch? I have replaced it and the single wire that it connects to. I even replaced the temp gauge in the dash as well.

Yes, that's the part.

When you add coolant with the Lisle funnel do you also crack open the bleeder bolt once you see coolant coming out close it back?
