I recently noticed that my fuel gauge is stuck at 3/4 and does not move. My oil pressure is always pegged at max. When stopped, it does go down just a little until I accelerate again. Finally, the temp. gauge is stuck at 80. This just happened all of a sudden. What is the problem? Is it something I can do myself? Your help is appreciated. Jim.

When you turn on the car and it is cold outside, the temp reads 80? Well I have seen the wire harness fail in the alternator circuit, that will take out the oil pressure gauge, but the temp gauge could be its own problem......Be sure to check the fuses! They will have hairline cracks in them at times.
