How do you adjust the calibration of the thermostat sensor readings to the dashboard gauge readings on a 1993 Dodge Spirit The gauge says it's overheating yet the car continues running properly?

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.
