see that hot first radiator hose. big one?
that goes right to the the thermostat housing
and the ECT will be near there, screwed in with 2 wires min.
in most cases..
find out what engine it REALLLY is, and google photos of THAT engine
and find this out. easy.
If you are "lugging" the engine, you will get increased exhaust temperature (EGT), this will trigger your "turbo" light(not a good thing), ideally you should have an aftermarket "pyrometer" fitted to your car, this will show you the optimum revs etc you should be using in any given circumstance.Or revise your driving technique, ie change down gears earlier.
The turbo should be idled down after long trips or heavy towing, this allows the oil temps to stabilise and turbine speeds to stabilise, thus idle for 2-5 minutes.
