    I Have no reading on my temp guage it used to work i have a b16a and idk what to do or where to start really it is burried in Cold and nvr moves

    if im not mistaken there is
    vtec oil presure sensor ( green plug 2 wires one is a ground)
    vtec sylinod (1 wire)\
    engine temp sensor ( 2 wires)
    and engine temp gauge sensor (1 wire)
    which are all on the passager side of the head

    well i have cheched the temp gauge sensor and cleaned it up
    and i have cheched all contections to the back of the gauge cluster
    i have opened the gauge cluster and cheched the needle to see if it froze
    i have no other ideas

    can i chech to see if the sensor is bad?
    i heard somthing about removing it and heating it ?\\\

    well thx in advvanse for the ideas
    ps: i have no codes

    i would buy a repair manual (preferable a helms) because it will help you diagnose these issues. There are step by step walk throughs to troubel shoot things like these.

    you can probably use one from a usdm b16. Also, is your motor warming up? It could be the gauge itself that's not working. Maybe you need a new cluster?
