Question about 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser
I have a toyota land cruiser 83, and i'm facing some problems with my oil temperature gauge, as soon as i turn the car on it goes all the way to the top and stays there.... i checked for electrical current on the sensor and it shows a constant and steady current, is current the way its supouse to be? I never had this happend to it, so right now i really don't know what the problem could be..... the sensor? or maybe i'm lossing some electrical current in the way to the sensor and thats generating the problem?
Nice job keeping this thing going for 26 years! Wow, I thought my 97 Astro was old. Odds are pretty good that it is the sending unit (sensor). You checked the voltage to the sensor and that's definitely where you want to start. It's not all that unusual for a sending unit to go bad. My advice is that if all the other guages are working correctly and there are no other electrical issues with the vehicle, that you replace the sending unit (sensor). Hope that helps, please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
