It may only need a coolant temp sensor to be fixed not a new gauge.

That was the case on my 98 v6 - the sensor tip basically fell off - or I helped it fall off while doing the water pump.

NOTE: You will need to know what type of connector the sensor has: the old-fashioned type that looks like a screw versus the alternative, referred to as a 'two blade' connector - a plastic wire connector cap.

Funny thing is that there is still only 1 wire going to the sensor.

It may be the cooling temperature sender not cooling temperature sensor, I had the same problem. I replaced the sensor but that didn't fix problem, I replaced the sending unit and that fixed the problem.
