hey, here is a way to test if its the sender, find the thermostat housing the sender sticks out of the side near the bottom at about 45 degrees and has a block connector on it, push the pin thing in, and remove the block, using a piece of wire connect the two terminals in there, go back to drivers seat, turn ignition on, it should go all the way up to the red, if so its the sender unit.

hope this helps
