Have 2001 Sportage,manual trans.; the temp. gauge reads normal at idle, but goes all the way down when accelerating, goes back to normal when clutch is used,then back down when clutch released. Not over heating, radiator full of fresh antifreeze. Maybe thermostat?

Agree w/ Wry Cuda, would check the electrical connector on the dash cluster coolant temp sensor (front of motor, follow top radiator hose -> thermostat housing, dash temp sensor is on left side),

re: thermostat, recheck & turn the heat on w/ control set over to Hot & no A/C, if the heat varies when accelerating / as above, I'd suggest replacing the thermostat.
