My Corsica's temp gauge went out, and to replace the OEM gauge would have required buying the whole instrument panel. We bought an aftermarket gauge and mounted it under the dash. It cost much less, and hey, it's not a show car so I don't mind that it's not 'perfect'. Just find the temp sensor on the engine (driver's side of car on back side of engine), and either use the sensor wire there or replace with one that works with your gauge.

Connect the freon can and a gauge to the low side AC port. With the AC on high and the engine running, open the freon valve. When the gauge reads full turn the freon off and unhook the gauge.
