    did you ever get an answer? My 03 suburban (5.3L Z71) has 80k miles and the temp gauge
    started acting up. 24 hours without driving on a 25deg F night and it read 220F upon startup then
    proceeded to climb past 260. Fluids are good. No holes, no smells, suspecting sending unit or gauge itself.
    Anyone have the diagram for a '03 5.3L with wiring?
