Default EGT gauge problems

The EGT has been installed for about a year. Its an autometer sport comp series.

I get in my car this morning and the gauge is pinned all the way to the right. This is just turning the car on. Its not just all the way to the right, the needle is basically pointing due south. I only have a 10 min ride to work, so I start the trek, taking it slow.

The gauge stays pinned the whole ride to work (all highway). I apply the brakes as I get ready to slow down for the off ramp and the EGT gauge jumps to 1400 F (which is what I am usually at for light highway driving. But as soon as I touch the gas again to accelerate off the ramp, the needle dips back down to due south.

Anyone had this problem or can think of what it could be? I'm hoping its a gauge related issue and that the probe is still fine. Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks

Check to make sure you gauge is grounded good. Otherwise it kinda sounds like your sensor went bad. Be happy it's not a Defi sensor.

Default What he said ..

Also be aware that autometer makes different probes.
Typically the faster acting probes are shorter in lifespan.

ATM5249 Severe duty slow acting probe
ATM5244 Standard duty fast acting probe with open tip
ATM5245 Severe duty fast acting probe with open tip
ATM5247 Same as 5244

hope this helps!

Check the ground, but if you have had the gauge for more than 15k miles it may be shot. EGT probes must be considered a consumable item and to be replaced.

I have the 5249 on a Sport Comp gauge and I get needle movement within a second or so of starting my car and it reacts fast enough to be useful, IMO...it is also reccomended for turbo applications....no problems in 10k miles.

Default Sorry Nate!

I do not know what probe came with your gauge. I actually got that list from I-club! I am also perplexed as to the same probe having 2 numbers...
Call Autometer and see if they can tell you anything.
(815) 895-8141
I don't even see a # on my probe! I got a Z-series EGT...

The 5247 and the 5244 are the same except for cable length the 5244 has a 10' cable and the 5247 has a 6' cable.
