Re: water temp sensor problem

Maybe try buy from the dealers and dont touch the top of the sensor or drop it as they very sensitive when installing it and put some tread tape on the treads, when screwing it into the block have the new one ready when you screw out the old one as coolant will come out then bleed the system and job done
