Flickering tranny temp gauge

I finally got the gauge pod installed with a set of AutoMeter gauges thanks to Gagfish. The tranny temp gauge seems to be acting up though. At first the temp would rise slowly then once it reached around 160* it would start to be affected by braking or accelerating, jumping up and down. John thinks it might be a bad gauge. Anything else to check? Not sure if this is the right forum for this problem, so feel free to move it. Thanks.

Question about grounding. In Fubarian's thread in the WIP forum it's mentioned a few times about grounding the sender. Could this be the problem? If it is, any tips on doing it?

I found this article a while back; it may be worth reviewing, though it doesn't say anything about grounding the sender. However, in the instructions on the gauge I plan on installing, it states to ground the gauge itself to the engine block.

Quoted: "For the most accurate reading, connect the gauge ground wire directly to the engine block, to ensure that there is a good ground between the sender and the gauge."

Just a thought....
