Hi my 03 kia has a 1.6L. The temperature gauge dosent seem to be marking. The lights work for the gauge but dosent seem to move even when turning on the key. I replaced the thermustate, But didnt do anything. It also seems to be pretty cold inside the cab but I just bought the car and im not used to it. My friend has basicaly the same car but in a hatch back and his heats up so much more. I made a winter front and plugged the rad pretty good to try and stop some cooling but didnt do much. The intake for the cab in the front is free and clear of snow. If you tell me its the gauge what else could it be. Thanks

Check the sending unit wire. It could be dislodged.
