hi again everyone...as you can see from my last post, i am having problems with my temp' sender...i have just fitted a new sender and thermostat and the guage still doesn't move.the 'stat is working perfectly.
i have tried many different actions and have heeded all advice...my car is a 1997 escort ghia x 1.8
this question is gonna sound totally stupid!!, but when i screwed the new temp' sender in,i screwed it in exactly the way the old one was in...what i mean is, the old sender had about a 1/4 inch of thread still visible, so i screwed the new one in the same way...i am getting a little leakage from the new one, so it seems logical to me that i need to screw it in [u]all the way[/u].....however, i am afraid of going too far and risking cracking something!...i know this question sounds totally dumb!!, but i would rather know beforehand,and save a big bill for repairs.
so, in short....should i screw the temp' sender in fully?.
thanks in advance guys.
