Re: Temperature Gauge Question
There are no numbers on the stock gauge, so I can not tell what temperature the needle represents, regardless of where it shows. This is why I am asking where do normal ones sit. So if the car is running normally and I can measure the temperature of the area around the sending unit using an infrared temperature tool, let's say that turns out to be 195F, on a gauge with no numbers, where would the needle normally point (middle of the graduated area, lower half, upper half, etc. )?
The sending unit I'm talking about is the one mounted in the intake. I've looked all around and see no other sending unit. I just got the car and I have no idea whether this is a stock setup or whether people have changed things. I just wanted to know if stock setups use one or two sending units and which one runs the gauge and which one runs the warning light, if it is set up that way.
