Does anyone know why my 06 MCX temp sensor is reading around 140 F this year when last year at temp was 160 F? It is not lake temp as it is up to 74 F already. Too much resistance in the wiring? I am pretty sure that the resistance goes down as temperature goes up. Maybe the gauge? Anyone have some thoughts?

get an infrared external thermometer from harbor freight to check - $10 - $20 - good tool to have

Was the thermostat. Finished installation today. It was a crusty mess and stuck open. After 700 hours, who would have thought....

For copper wire, as temperature increases, the resistance increases.

Yeah Blackhawk. I should have clarified the sensor, not the wiring. Sorry about that. I think the sensor is temperature up, resistance down. Or as I like to call it, a TURD sensor!
