Temp gauge is goofy when I hit the gas?

Very odd, on my 96 when I hit the gas the temp gauge flutters all the way up for a second or two then goes back to the half way point and stays there. Does this even when it's cool so I know it's not running hot. Anybody ever see this before?

Check the 1 wire sensor above the oil filter (1st sensor to the left) it might be loose

yup, sounds like block motion due to torque reaction might be involved together with a bad connection.
Should be easy to find.
Good luck.
