for some odd reason my tempretur gauge and fuel gauge go haywire, for some reson they go up and down when they feel like it and somtimes sit on empty and boiling hot until you either hit the dash (in anger with them) or hit a bump in the road and they will go back to normal and then after a bit of time they go back being haywire, can anyone help me out y they are doing this and how to fix it :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

Sounds like a dud ground wire. Pull the cluser and check all connections. Also pule the back off to access the circuits and check for any loose nuts that may be holding a ground wire or connection. Clean all the contacts and cross your fingers.

Or as he said ^^^^
