    What is the max reading on the amp gauge?

    You probably want to measure everything except the starter motor current. There is usually a terminal block somewhere on the fire wall. The amp meter is connected in SERIES with the wire where a voltmeter is connected in PARALLEL (across) the circuit.

Where is the oil pressure sensor on a 1995 Chevy Truck? V-8, 5.7 L. I have the new one, just can't find the one I need to replace.


If you go to a parts store, I prefer CARQUEST, they will gladly print up a schematic or just show you where it is if that is all you need.

What size breaker


Rule of thumb:
Typical residential water well is 1 to 2 Hp @ 240volt
Use a double 20 amp breaker and 12 gauge wire up to 2 Hp pump/ within 100' distance
Use double 30 amp breaker and 10 gauge wire for 3-4 Hp pump/ within 100'

For residential water heater, 30 amp is best... but must have 10 gauge wire.

If you have 12 gauge wire, then use 20 amp breaker and install 3800 watt elements in place of 4500 watt elements

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)

My car keeps overheating. My coolant is draining out all the time so i refill it about every other day. Oil lights on and i got an oil change so its new oil but the light is still on. So i took it in and...


If you don't repair the water pump you will be walking, A used motor runs around $500-$750 and the labor to put in the engine is $500-$1000 so you dicide if you want to spend a couple hundred now or $1500 later, I would fix the water pump and install a new thermostat and coolant.
As for the oil light= check that the wire connector is attached to the oil pressure sensor located by the oil filter, replace if the wiring is good, now if it is still on, put an oil pressure gauge on where the sensor is installed and check to make sure the oil pump is producing pressure

I need to know the breaker size and wire gauge and number of wires needed for a bosch ae125 water heater


According to the user manual below, it's a 50 amp heater, therefore, you need 6 AWG electrical cable and a 50 amp double pole (220 volt) breaker in the main service panel.

You need two hot wires and a ground wire. The cable would be specified as 6/2 w/ ground. The 2 hot wires in the cable would be red & black or black & black -- these attach to L1 & L2 respectively. ( L = Line )

More info, let me know.

Guages on 87 olds cutlass are not working properly. fuel does not work, temperature works but goes strainght to hot as soon as the car warms up, amp gueage discharging oil pressure not working


Hi, you will have to replace all sending units for these gauges in order to restore them to there original state. i will list the sending units and there respective locations below.

1. Fuel gauge sending unit- you will need to replace the fuel sending unit on your Olds. its located inside the actual fuel tank. there's a floater attached to this Assembly and , its broken. you will have to replace the entire assembly. you will also have to drop the fuel tank to access it as well.

2. Temp guage-- normally when this guage starts to malfunction, its because of a bad coolant temperature sensor. Inspect the sensor's wires and connections. ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor problems are often caused by faulty wiring or loose or corroded connections rather than the failure of the sensor itself. If the wires or connections are bad, replace them. If you think the sensor is defective, it should be tested.

This sensor is located Under hood, center, upper engine area, front of carburetor, passenger side of water outlet, mounted in intake manifold.

3. Amp gauge --- OK, this can be caused by a bad voltage regulator. i would also trace every single wire from the amp gauge to the sensor and regulator. check for corroded connectors and contact clips. replace any wire that may seem worn.

4. Oil pressure gauge-- This gauge will malfunction if the Oil pressure switch is faulty or not working. This is an Information relay unit for the indicator light or gauge on instrument panel. It contains a diaphragm that responds to changes in oil pressure. When the oil level is over a pre-set limit, the diaphragm opens the switch, turning off the light. When level is below the pre-set limit, the dash light comes on. In later model cars, if the oil pressure drops, the switch turns off the fuel pump, to stop the engine and limit damage to internal parts. Oil pressure switches can be grouped into two categories, units for electrical gauges and for mechanical gauges. If this switch is defective, it will have to be replaced. Once replaced, it will fix the dead oil gauge.

This device is located Under the hood, passenger side, front engine area, mounted rear of water pump. If the wires are worn or there is an oil leak near the switch location, replace it.

Inspecting all the above areas and replacing parts if needed, will fix your gauge issues.

Please rate and god bless:)
