CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG sgtsasser13 (I'M MORE INTO CARURETED STUFF. JEEPS AND OLDER FORDS)

I LOOKED FOR YOU A DIAGRAM IN "MITCHELL I". BOTH DO NOT SHOW THE "SENDER". THEY DO SHOW THE "ECT" SENSOR. WHICH IS THE ONE FOR THE COMPUTER, NOT THE GAUGE. THIS ONE IS SHOWN IN BOTH "DIFFERENT ENGINE" DIAGRAMS

SO. YOU GOTTA LOOK FOR THE OTHER ONE

MANY TIMES AT THE PARTS STORE. THE PARTS GUY MAY GIVE YOU THE WRONG ONE

. TO BE FAIR, WHEN THE PARTS GUY ASKS, "WHICH SENSOR". AND THE CUSTOMER WAS ONLY AWARE OF ONE. TERMS SUCH AS "TEMPERATURE" COUPLED WITH "THINGEE" AND "DO-LOLLY" AND "ET CETERA". OUT OF THE CUSTOMERS MOUTH (WHO MAY BE CONFUSED FROM THE GIT-GO) MAY AID IN GETTING THE WRONG SENSOR TOO!

WITHOUT YOUR INFO.I GRABBED A DIAGRAM FOR THE "2.2L" AND THE "4.3L"

1) 2.2L

2) 4.3

LET US KNOW IF THIS HELPS
