I have a water temperature gauge that is not working.

(1991 Ford F-250)
in Indianapolis, IN on October 29, 2012
The oil pressure and battery volt meter gauge work fine. I was told that these gauges are all on the same fuse. The heater works fine so I don't think its a bad thermastate. Any advice would be very helpful Thank You

Check the coolant temperature sending unit on the engine, it might be unplugged or defective. You didnt say which engine is in your truck. If its a 4.9 6 cyl its near the last intake plenum runner, if its a V-8 its on the left side of the intake manifold near the distributor.
