    ok i was driving my wifes LS and i noticed that the engine temp gauge is not moving it stays down at the cold postion all the time. now the car has heat so i know that the car is not staying cold and i have fresh anti freeze in the car. i was wondering if it is my ect or etc sensor that is just bad but wouldn't i get a cel for that?

    I don't htink you would get a cel for the ETC, You thermostat might be shot, Or the ECT sensor it's self.

    the only reason why i ruled out the therm is because it is getting warm in the car but i think it could be the ect know any sites where i can order one? there is no local acura dealer around here

    My needle broke..[maybe that happened?] and today it fell off....
    I use an aftermarket rice-pod gauge instead, it works good. :)
