because the engine in that car does not cool down
The most likely cause is a broken wire or blown fuse.
If the gas gauge stops working is there a fuse for it?
more then likely it could be the temp, sending unit. or a bad wire to temp, sensor!!
the sending unit is attached to the fuel pump in the tank.
It is inside of the fuel tank.

$600 for a new pump, sending unit and labor
The fuel sensor in the gas tank is bad.
If you want a metric speedometer simply hold the info+return buttons down simultaneously for a few seconds, then you can switch to imperial units and vice versa. The better question is "where was that in the manual?" lol
What is the problem with the gauge? We had a problem with my wife's 1997 Malibu fuel gauge following a trip to the mechanic, where the needle was stuck below the resting pin, therefore the gauge no longer worked properly. We thought it would need to be replaced, or a major tear out of the dash to fix. After some researching on the internet, the problem was easily solved by flipping the needle around manually, using a bent paper clip through the hole in the dash. It was a 5 min. fix.
your gas gauge float is in the gas tank you have to drop your gas tank and take out sending unit but if the gas gauge is not reading right you should check the ground wire on the gas tank
The temp sending unit may be unplugged or faulty.
It could be: Bad sending unit, bad gauge, faulty wiring, corroded connector or a bad ground wire. But that's probably the ONLY things that can cause your particular problem.
In my experience with my Chevy it was a ground wire
Why does the temperature gauge on your 2001 malibu not work and the cooling fans run all the time?
Check for power and ground to the sending unit . If you have that then ground the sending unit and see if it works.If the gauge works then the sending unit is defective.
The sending unit in the gas tank is bad.
a bad sending unit in the gas tank.
I am willing to bet that you have had someting inside your gas tank or dash worked on recently. The issue is that the plug for your sending unit is on backwards or the wires to your gauge are reversed.
Probably around 40 psi Check with manual gauge - electrical gauge is just anguide and not gospel
Answer to Gas gauge thermostat 98 MalibuI just recently had this same problem. Under the hood open the fuse box. In the center of the fuse box there is a red 10amp fuse its # 37 if your looking at the diagram. Labeled A/C BFC. Replace it with either a 10 or 20 fuse and everything should be back up and running. -Serial
