temperature gauge not working can be caused by a bad temp sensor in engine, a bad gauge in dash, or a bad fuse
Yes, special order.
Nothing as long as it is within normal operating range Gauges are just and indicator--not gospel
Coolant Temperature Sensor
Because it is a Pontiac. Sorry, man.
The gauge does not cause the heat; it only shows what it is.
Check to make sure that the temperature sensor is good. A bad sensor is commonly the cause of the temperature gauge not working.
There are several things that can cause your 2001 Ford F2 50 outside temperature gauge to quit working. The most common cause is a malfunctioning outside temperature sensor.
Answer location of check gauges lightthe check gauges light is on your instrument panel when it comes on it lights up saying check gauges

A gauge glass may burst depending on the gauge itself. High temperature and pressure situations may cause the glass to burst.
Yes, there is a fuse for this. It should be labeled INST.
Probably the temp sending unit.
I haven't towed with a Sunfire, but would suspect that it might slow going. I'd keep an eye on the temp. gauge. According to Edmunds, the towing capacity of an 05 Sunfire is 1000 lbs. I'd certainly try to stay well under that ceiling. FriPilot
There are two...one that sends a signal to the gauge and one that sends a signal to the computer.
Normal opperating temp would be just under the half way point, so around the bottom to middle of the symbol on the temp gauge.

Yes, because your vehicle will overheat.

A low coolant level could cause the temp gauge not to read correctly. A faulty temp gauge sending unit could also be the cause. The coolant leak, you would have to find the source of the leak to determine the cause.
An inoperative temperature gauge will not alter how an engine runs, but the operator will not know if the water temperature has risen above normal without a properly working guage.
The temperature sensor is malfunctioning
Most likely the sensor in the motor.
