  • Q:

    Can you please advise resistance values for sender part number WT762?

    I'm looking for a sender with similar electrical characteristics as part number WT367 - specifically with 91-109 Ohms resistance at 220F - but I need it to have the same mounting features as WT762.

      The BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor - Part No. WT762 has a normal resistance range of 2200 - 2700 Ohms (ohm x 1000) at 50 - 80 Degree Fahrenheit. Unfortunately I do not see a similar sensor with 91-109 Ohms resistance at 220 F range available online. However I would recommend that you check with the nearest Advance Auto store or call us toll free at: 1-877-238-2623 and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
