The earlier engines had two sensors, one for the gauge and one for the PCM. The later engines only had one. You should use the sensor from the 99 in the driver side cylinder head and either plug the other hole or just leave the sensor from the 98 in the hole.

Like I said, swap over the sensor from your old engine into the same location on the replacement engine. This should result in a properly reading gauge. The sensors may be different resistance ranges for the given engine temp range.
