Why would the temperature gauge not raise after you installed a new water pump on a 1998 Pontiac Grand AM?

It sounds like you may need either (a) a new thermostat (b) a new radiator pressure cap, (c) the temperatiure sensor sending unit is disconnected from the wire - or, (d) you need a new temp guage My bet is either on the disconnected sensor wire OR a new thermostat is needed.
