I have a 3s engine in a 92 GT and the temp gauge worked for like two days and know it doesnt work, I bought the thermistor/cooler, it was broke, from the dealership and put it in, but it still doesnt work. Also the fan doesnt work either. Is there any other sensors i should check? Need help fast!! Dont want to overheat anything. I dont think anything is, but i just want to be sure. I have the fan jumpered out so when i hit the lights it comes on.

The fan runs off the sensor in the bottom of the radiator. The sender for the gauge is in the water neck. Sounds like those two are the ones you need to check. If the sender is fine, then the guage issue could be the gauge itself or wiring.

First off, it's a technicality, but the fan uses a switch, not a sensor.
It's on/off, not variable.
It is not the only thing that actuates the fan. The ac pressure switch does also.

Check the BGB for how to check out the fan circut and the temp sensor.
