My niece just bought an 05 rendezvous. the first time we drove it the temp gauge didn't move off of cold. I shut it off and restarted it and then it seemed to be fine. As soon as we were on our way home, we stopped for gas. When we resumed the temp gauge spike all the way around way past hot. We checked it out and the engine showed no other signs of being hot at all.

Any ideas where to start? what is the likely culprit? does this gauge have or sensor have anything to do with the mass air flow sensor or how rich or lean it will run? It seemed to run fine for a hundred miles back home.

Almost always ends up being a cluster on those. Get a scanner and monitor your coolant temp sensor. If the gauge freaks out but the sensor is reading correctly do a coolant gauge sweep test in the functional tests portion of your scan tool. If it doesn't sweep clean replace the cluster.

Took it to Larry's electric in Bay City. Gauges are fixed.
