1994 T-bird questions?

I have 1994 T-bird. I just changed the old battery to the new one a few days ago. The car has 96,000 miles on it. It has a little hesitation to go from second gear to the next one. I would be happy to fix that problem.
But when I was driving today, the water gauge went almost all the way up to red mark.
I wonder if I blew the fuse after I changed the battery, that controls the fan or something else in a cooling system.

First thing to check would be coolant level .Check fan is cutting in as suggested. Could be a sticking thermostat .Could verify it is running hot and not just a faulty gauge reading .

Re: 1994 T-bird questions?

under most driving conditions the fans wont be on unless you are in stop and go traffic or sitting at idle for a while. If you want to see if they are working turn on your a/c, they will come on at that time. Like the other poster said check your coolant level as well as condition of the coolant. You can also check the temp sending unit and make sure the connection is nice and tight.
