PONTIAC GRAND AM ENGINE PROBLEM

1995 Pontiac Grand Am • 211,000 miles

I recently replaced my idle air control valve and now my car runs fine except my engine temperature gauge doesn't seem to read normal since then would changing this part possibly cause this problem

No, no relation unless you disturbed a connector.

I do not believe so it still runs fine and the gauge reads to a certain extent just never moves very far up there were wires around but I do not believe I touched any of them except for one that goes into the top of the intake towards where the throttle bore would be

You may have a bad thermostat

Good luck

I have one more question to ask the car seems to be messing up by reving really high when going down the road would it be possible that the iac needs adjusted again
