ive got an issue with my car. i have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. on Thursday I preformed an engine degrease and sense then my fans won't run, my car uses more gas then it should (and by that i mean when i tap my gas peddel i go up to 3000 RPM and slowly drop back down), and my engine temperature gauge only goes up. it used to bounce around Ive narrowed that last one down to the Thermostats. despite whats going on if i unplug my engine temperature sensor it the fans and the gas work normal again. Ive already replaced the sensor so im up for any suggestions.
