Question about 1998 GMC Sonoma
You bought the wrong sensor
there car 3 types used on many engines.
and there are many GM engine options, every year.
so did you buy it in a store, o r online,?
most online buyer need to know what they are ordering.
(yes, buying parts can be a horror,for anyone.)
that is because online is not indexed by VIN, (dolts)
Some stores, list 2 of 5 engines and stupidly assume there are just 2. this really ges my goat.... end rant.
in a real store they ask for VIN, on GM there is a RPO sticker
in the glove box.and has engine code right there. (a build list)
some times the VIN gets it right the engine code there,, but not always.
the 3 sender are. (circa 98) ECT, dash guage, and A/C over heat.
post the engine size,.vin # or rpo sticker photo.
when you see the 3 wire, that usually means the sensor covers
2 temp senders in one. and is wrong for you.
try using smp cat. 2.4l or 4.3L it shows.
i looked there and both engines are 2 pins. 1998
tell me brand of sensor and box pn, and ill tell you every engine it fits
or go to rockauto, and do same.
i looked and not one 3pin ,just 2 and the 1pin gauge sender
if you have different engine. than the 2 listed above. all bets off.
