ok so installed basicly a edelbrock air gap intake. i put new gaskets on and such and got the intake installed with out any problems. when i got everything together again and was running the car i relized the temp gauge never read anything even after long idling and what not. also my electric fans turn on at 160 degrees. and they as well were not turning on. my thermostat was also closed but my manifold and heads were very hot. the gauge is not broken because when my radiator hose shot off today and my car was running the temp went up real fast. but this annoys me becasue i dont know what went wrong. any one ever deal with anything like this? could it be something with a head gasket? becasue i have oil leaking and spraying on my fenders pretty bad but i dont think its coming form the valve covers becasue the headers are clean in some spots where in some spots it looks like oil is shooting from the flange on the primary, Sorry for the constant problems. my brand new motor with less than 3000 miles on it is way to problematic.
