Engine Cooling problem
1998 Ford Contour 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive 109, 00 miles

My 1998 Contours gauge reads hot even when the car is operating at normal temperature. My mechanic tried to charge me $150 for a coolant temperature switch. My son replaced it for me since it just screwed into the top of the engine, (and cost me $20) but the problem still persists. The gauge does not drop into the red but just above it.
Do you
