06 9-3 aero 2.8 issues

So trying to see if anyone else has had or seen this, I'm a 16 yr tech just reaching out before I Tare into it.
Temp gauge stuck all the way up. Not overheating I assume a faulty sensor but Saab only lists one (2) wire sensor from my exp cluster is a single wire ecu is (2). Thoughts?

Problem #2.
Random coolant loss. Not mixing or overheating, at random rhd car losses about a gallon, by the time I get it on my lift and moist areas are dry and it holds a pressure test only a 4 psi drop in 30 min with no coolant to be found leaking........

Again. 2006. 9-3 aero 2.8 6sp manual car. I am the first owner, 122k on the car.

My car has the same coolant issues. Apparently the turbo location sets many things up for failure with this car. I was pondering the idea of upgrading to the Gsaab coolant strut bar kit before my car started acting a fool.
