I passed through about 3 Chinese brand ones in about a year (three years ago). Two out of those three gauges I faced the exact same problem that you're now currently enduring. Don't even bother trying to use another sensor with the gauge as most of the sensors calibrated to work with the gauge it came with. Others will give you erroneous readings. I now have a digital Celsius water temp. Prosport gauge two years running with no problems.

depends on budget
If you want good quality, give Tuner Imports a call and see what they have
