Okay... not sure, but maybe the change in the heat coming out of the vents was my imagination.

But, I happened to catch the gauge in action, and going from norm to hi or vice-versa takes no longer than 15-20 seconds. That seems awfully quick if it were a thermostat... wouldn't the deflection happen slower if the t-stat stuck?

So, perhaps this is a sender issue? Oh well, the shops gonna take a look-see tomorrow.
