Ever since I bought the car the Temp guage pegs as soon as I start the car and doesn't come down untill I turn to car off. I'm sure there is a simple fix to this...but I don't know it. Do you? Care to share?

I'd check the water temp sensor before I did anything, don't have anything here to tell you where to find that, but I'm sure you could find it somewhere.

You have a dead short somewhere, find the sensor it shuold be somewhere near where your top radiator hose goes in to te block, turn the IGN on and remove the wire from the sensor, (it will just pull off) If the gauge changes then replace the sensor if there is no change then you need to look for a damaged wire. the colour of the wire will be unique to that item.
