    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Temperature Sender With Gauge:

    I need to exchange for another one. My old sender was busted during an engine swap, so I bought this as a replacement. It has been reading as overheating, but I had it checked with an IR temp-gun and when the gauge reads 240, the actual is 183; I have a 180 stat. Hopefully this is an isolated defective unit and a swap will take care of it. It goes to 260 on hot days after climbing hills, so I assume it's only going to 203 when that happens. At least I hope!

    Mine is for an 89 Camaro 5.7L.

    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Temperature Sender With Gauge:

    Simple installation; locate and remove old and replace with new. I bought the Coolant Temperature Sensor by BWD because I was receiving a higher than normal guage reading and was using a parts replacement procedure to acertain and correct the potential problem. I did see a reduced guage reading, but can not point to the temperature sensor alone because I also replace the thermostat; so it could have been a combination of both products.

    • Q:

      This sensor did not screw all the way in my block. I have a 1990 Chevy 1500 v6 (4.3). Is this ok, or should it have screwed all the way in?
      Asked on 9/6/2012 by John from Florida

        A:

        The coolant temperature sensor is used to measure the temperature of the engine coolant of an internal combustion engine. The readings from this sensor are then fed back to the Engine control unit (ECU). This data from the sensor is then used to adjust the fuel injection and ignition timing. On some vehicles the sensor may be used to switch on the electronic cooling fan. The data may also be used to provide readings for a coolant temperature gauge on the dash. The coolant temperature sensor works using resistance. As temperature subjected to the sensor increases the internal resistance changes. Depending on the type of sensor the resistance will either increase or decrease. Hence, it is necessary that the coolant temperature sensor should have to be screwed all the way in the block.

    • Q:

      the mech put antisieze compound on the threads when he installed the sensor will that cause an inaccurate reading on my gauage?

        A:

        No, the anti seize compound would not make inaccurate readings in gauge.
