      Hi Goldie, I'm glad to assist you. This Dorman - Champ Water Temperature Gauge - Mechanical (Part No. 7-120) is universal and not a vehicle specific. It is a mechanical gauge that is not removable or serviceable. It does come with a 96" lead wrapped in braided line.

      A:

      Hi Allen, I'm glad to assist you! This is a universal coolant gauge. We do not offer any vehicle specific installation instructions for these. You'll have to look on your motors for a threaded hole in the coolant system to be used on that you can screw this into.

  • Q:

    My Ranger has a plug on the driver side of the block.
    just to the right of the oil fiter.
    is this where the sending part of the gauge whould go?

      A:

      The plug on the driver side of the block on your Ford ranger is for the freeze plug. To install the Dorman - Champ Water Temperature Gauge - Mechanical - Part No. 7-120 you will have to drill a hole, install it, and get it nice and sealed. You will have to install it in a location where it will have contact with the coolant so that you can figure out how hot/cold it's running. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.
