    If you'd like, I'll give you a good one for free! How's that sound? You just pay envelope shipping.
    I work in a wrecking yard, and got mine here at work, and it works well. Just a bad sensor from Holley.

    RockAuto has a half dozen different ones for less than $10, but I got the Standard TX3T locally for less than $10, including tax.
    When I got mine, I didn't know the one that came with my kit was going to be non-functional after two weeks, so grabbed the cheapest one I could find, as a test...and it works great ever since.

    If you are an O'Reilly Auto Parts customer, their sensor part number is WT3000. Picked one up today and now both my water temp gauge and the temp in the monitor match perfectly. Also, maybe it's just in my head because I read it from someone else, but I swear it idles better with this new sensor.

    It's probably finally idle Learning consistently.

    Yes, a failing coolant temperature sensor will wreak havoc on an EFI system.
