If electrical then usually there is a spot on the passenger side head to thread the sending unit , if mechanical then the transducer would thread into a provision in the gooseneck on the front of the intake manifold

Installing temperature gauge 1999 Mustang 3.8L


Congrats. Sarcasm is free.
I didn't see a question, so let's play the guessing game.

Air temp?
Water temp?
Oil temp?
Trans temp?
Your temp?

Do you need to know how to mount a gauge to the dash?
Do you need to know where to run the power wire for gauge light?
Do you need to know where to install the sensor on intake and or engine?
Do you need to borrow some tools?

I feel better after unloading sarcasm.

Now, I'm going to assume it's water temp.

if it's electronic, you can just remove the stock sensor wire from on/near the waterneck/thermostat housing and plug in the new wire.

If it's mechanical, you will need to install the new probe into a port where it can contact the water.

On my old 3.8 (1997) I changed to an aftermarket waterneck that had a spot to screw in a temp probe.

On my 2003 gt, I haven't upgraded gauges yet, but the water sensor is on the front passenger side of the intake. I will add a pic of my gt so you can see the placement.

With this type, you can just add your wires to it (splice them in) and keep both the stock gauge & the aftermarket.
Or just remove the stock wire, then the stock sensor, then install the new stuff.
it's the black wire near the alternator. (almost center right of the pic to the right of the pink fuel injector)

2003 ford f-350 trans temp gauge shows hot, tow / haul light blinks steadily....what could be the problem


From what i know of these trucks, its a "common problem". There is a tsb on this and the gauges arent really accurate. The tow light is blinking due to heating(not really), its trying to tell you to stop towing. Ive read that some guys gauge is reading 250 which if it really were, the truck would be running. Water boils at 220(im sure u know that). Suggestions ive come across is adding aftermarket gauges that give "accurate" readings unlike factory ones that are controlled by computer. Aftermarket will give you independent readouts.Heres a temp check you can try on your truck, im not sure if it will work for your model.




This is for the regular dash, like in XLT.
key off
push trip button in and hold
turn key on
"test" will appear in message display. Release button.
Gauges will sweep
then just push the button each time to scroll thru various modes.
Mostly junk info, but eventually you will come to temp, it is in Celcius so you have to convert to Farenheight(temp x 1.8 + 32)
Normal temp for mine at idle is 88, so 88x1.8=158.4,+ 32=190.4F
You can also view digital tach. All these modes are real time, and will remain on until you cycle the key on/off.

1984 FIERO 4 CYL STICK. had a aftermarket elec temp gauge mounted on console, replaced with a mech temp gauge. after replacing temp gauge is when the fuel gauge messed up. now when you turn on the key or...


I assume you replaced the temperature sending unit when you installed the aftermarket gauge? You need to put the proper sending unit back in for the OEM gauge to work.

You can find a sending unit here (and a gauge if needed):

I have a 1991 Chevy Silverado with a 350 5.7ltr engine. I have recently replaced the waterpump, thermostat, electronic coolant temp sensor and a heater hose. The Temp Gauge in the dash still isn't working....


The connection at the gauge,or the gauge is bad,one ,or the other.Just make sure the sending unit is good,I know it is new,but make sure anyway,and check the connector on the sending unit,and the wire.

Oil temp gauge goes low middle high


probably clogged ports... there is a tsb that says not to use any aftermarket oil filters on the 5.4l engine... peices of the gasket on aftermarket filters break away and clog passages in the engine. always use motorcraft filters for that engine...

Strange guage surges on Ford 350.


I think the ford 350 might be a loose ground wire. This can cause the erraticness within the gauges.

The windstar is a faulty sensor switch on the brakes master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires that are connected to it causeing a short circuit and resulting in a blown fuse that powers the AC, cruise control, odometer, speedometer and the ABS light to remain on. This issue can also cause a fire. This fire can occur even when the car is off. To fix the problem go to this URL - http://www.fordwindstarrecall.info/
