Yes it sure can.
Fuse location for temperature gauge for a Malibu
To avoid false readings due to rainwater running into the gauge from the surrounding ground.
Generally the fuel gauge sending unit located in the fuel tank is at fault for incorrect fuel level readings.
Most oil pressure gauges operate by a varying voltage. The oil pressure changes the resistance in the oil sensor, causing the gauge to change readings.
Improper readings could result because of rain being diverged from the gauge by the trees leaves, or dripping water could also affect them.
Most likely the problem is with the Pressure Sensor in the engine block.

Yes, but if your gauge is showing full when it isn't, then it's probably either a bad gauge or a stuck floater in the tank.
The fuel gauge in a 2001 Cherokee could be having different readings due to a bad fuel sensor. The sensor is mounted inside of the fuel tank.

Check engine light : Gauge cluster without tachometer ( under the engine oil pressure gauge ) Gauge cluster with tachometer ( just to the left of the battery voltage gauge )
Probably a defect in the gauge cluster. This old a car, you can pick up a gauge cluster cheap at a junkyard.
you have one of two problems. either you have a bad gauge or a bad sensor. I would go to a pick and pull junkyard and get a new sender off of a car at the junkyard, if that does not help, I would go back to the junkyard and get the gauge of another car and replace it. This will solve your problem Dodge Spirit and Plymouth Acclaims have issues with the temp sensor. Also, you could have a leaking head gasket which is my current problem on my 94 Spirit.
Did you do the air condition service yourself? If so did you add proper amount of 134a and compressor oil? What are the gauge readings on the hi and low pressure sides? (and include outdoor temp on the day you take readings)
Weathermen use readings from thermometer, barometer, hygrometer, and wind speed gauge. While a thermometer measures temp, the barometer measures air pressure. A Hygrometer measures water vapor. Each of these produce readings which together give a picture of the atmospheric conditions.
make sure that floating thing in the fuel tank is position right or working. The fuel gauge won't be working right if its stuck in one position. Hope that helps...
There is much controversy over whether psychics legitimately have a sixth sense or whether they are just great actors. While many people are curious about psychics, few people have ever received a psychic reading. Psychic readings are fun and interesting experiences that can be enjoyed alone, when you need a little extra guidance, or with friends, for a unique experience that will be remembered for years. The Different Types Of Psychic Readings There are a wide variety of psychic readings available to those interested. Some popular types of readings are tarot card readings, astrology readings, horoscope readings, psychometric readings, numerology, palm readings, past life readings, aura readings, or distant readings. Most people are probably most familiar with palm readings, astrology readings, horoscope readings, and numerology readings. These readings are based more on ancient belief systems or sciences, than the sixth sense of the psychic conducting the reading. Psychometric readings, past life readings, aura readings, or distant readings are based on the sixth sense and special abilities of the psychic conducting the reading. These types of readings offer the customer a chance to gain insight on past experiences, hear messages from the dead, or even gain knowledge on what is to happen in the future. While many people imagine a psychic behind a crystal ball, this scenario is more cliche than what will actually happen during a reading. Most readings will be conducted either over the phone or in a private area, and will seem more like a normal conversation, than a quirky crystal ball reading. Should I Really Believe What I’m Told? Whether you believe what is told to you in a psychic reading is up to your discretion. While many people are very doubtful of the legitimacy of psychics, others are completely convinced of their validity. While receiving a psychic reading, you will be able to distinguish whether the psychic in question truly knows specific facts of your life and gauge whether you believe in the reading and what the psychic has to say. Psychic readings are a very unique experience that can be shocking, interesting, and fun if received with an open mind.
A manometer with two ports (digital or magnahelic), is best. Compare readings to published values or what is stamped on switch. One will be positive and one will be negative. If only single port gauge used, add positive and negative readings together, to get total.
a dead weight tester apparatus uses known traceable weights to apply pressure to a fluid for checking the accuracy of readings from a pressure gauge.
Look for a manufacture that supplies a mechanical gauge and check directions for location it depends what the size fittings they use.
You can place it on the roof, but not on the sides. Blowing wind can create a "rain shadow" on one side, with drops blocked as they fall. Alternately, projections from the building could funnel rain from a large wall area into the gauge.
Sounds like a new pressure gauge sender is in order. That actual pressure would be virtually unattainable under normal working operation in your motor (10 psi per 1000 rpm is a good rule of thumb for proper oil pressure, a greater ratio at lower rpm is fine, the opposite, not so much), so it is definitely an improper reading of the gauge. If it is the factory dash gauge you are obtaining these readings from, it is also possible that the needle itself on the gauge cluster has simply loosened slightly, not enough to fall off, but just enough to swing into the improper location. If it is an aftermarket gauge, again, re-check the pressure sender.
Gauge is a measure of how large the opening of the needle is. The larger the number the smaller the hole. Most venipuncture is done with a 16-24 gauge needle, depending on the size of the patient and the location of the vein. A 10 gauge needle would be huge.
There can be several causes but as a starting point check the pressure gauge. These are inexpensive and they do fail after a while. Just replace it with a new one and see if the pressure readings return to normal. IF they do it was the gauge. If they don't then check for channeling in a sand filter, a ripped or damaged or improperly seated cartridge in a cartridge filter, and worn or torn grids or damaged fingers in a DE filter. IF it was not the gauge then you now have a backup gauge for when it does fail (and it will!)
