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.
Thermostat probably needs to be replaced.
No, but it has a temperature gauge that you need to check regularly.
The Temperature sensor for the computer is on top the head. The temperature sensor for the temperature gauge is located under the Thermostat housing.

On a 1997 Ford Contour : ( No ) Just the engine oil pressure warning light located in the upper right area of your gauge cluster ( above the fuel gauge )
Defective temperature gauge or defective temperature sensor?
Bad gauge or defective coolant temperature sensor
why is the temperature gauge not moving on a 2007 Lincoln mkz
An automobile temperature gauge can fluctuate when the thermostat is opening and closing erratically. The temperature gauge can also fluctuate when the ground wire is loose.
It is possible that the temperature gauge has stopped working in a 1992 Tempo due to a blown fuse. It is also possible that the temperature gauge stopped working do to the temperature sensor in the engine having a short.
The temperature gauge on a car fluctuates because the car's thermostat is opening and closing. The gauge goes up when the thermostat closes and the gauge goes down when the thermostat opens.
It will usually run with a gauge temperature of around 200-210 degrees.
Check coolant temperature with a thermometer- could be a bad gauge reading or a defective fan sensor
Temperature Fluctuation simply
temperature gauge, temperature measurement device
A temperature gauge, that always read the maximum temperature, is usually not connected to the temperature sensor. The wire between the gauge and the sensor must be broken.
Low Coolant? Weak Temerature sensor? Weak gauge Gauge working properly and recording the thermostat opening and closing as engine temperature fluctuates
There are two kinds of engine temp gauges available for VWs. One is the Oil Temperature Gauge, the other a Cylinder Head Temperature Gauge.
