My temperature gauge isn't working and I was wondering if you guys could post a pic of the sensor that most likely went out???? I bought a sensor from advance but couldn't find where it went................Chilton's Manuals Suck
Hmmmmmm, never thought to check the drivers side, the stupid chiltons manual didn't say where it was but I saw a pulley in the pic and assumed the sensor was near one. Maybe I was looking at the wrong sensor picture.
The gauge sending unit is on the driver's side lower intake (as noted). It has one wire going to it.
Ensure you got a gauge sending unit from the parts store (not an ECT).
The item you broke looks like a smog system solenoid. The car will run alright without it but the AIR system will not. If you have stock cats, I'd fix it so the cats get their extra air injection.
FWIW....I would at a minimum block that hose....or get an lenght of hose and reconnect them...Its a vacuum leaks of sorts...in (2) places to boot....The other end may be sucking air?? Its connected to these up in the pass side fender..
I'd take the time to block em off...
