Im looking for the coolant temp sender that operates the temp guage on my 90 s/c parts car. There is no interior left in the car right now so grounding the wire doesnt help much.
I just wanted to swap the sender into my LX but want to make sure its the correct one and not the temp lock out switch or something. Unless they are the same part?
None of the local parts stores have the sender in stock and its getting colder so I'd like to fix it before its too cold.
I'll add that I wouldn't reuse the old one - there's a nice TSB on ALL of them failing due to a manufacturing design defect. Well, not all have failed, but it's more like "not all have failed YET"
Get a new one instead. They're cheap, and cheap insurance against burning up a motor because the temp gauge pointed to "N" when it was at 270*F ...
I am only looking to use it until the local parts place can get one in. I just dont really like not having a temp guage. But good to know there is a TSB on them. Did it affect the cold engine lock out sender switch for the heater as well?
They look like they could be the same senders.
I ordered a new one for the guage the other day, just waiting on it to come in. Hadnt thought to check availability on the CELO. I do have a couple from donor cars that had working climate control though.
