This is the temperature sensor used by the engine computer (the gauge in the dash uses a different sensor). This sensor is critical to proper engine performance. If the computer thinks the engine is cold, it will run overly rich with reduced power and fuel mileage.
Usually, but not always, a failed sensor will give you a check engine code, so you might want to check your engine codes before replacing this sensor.
This is a brand new high quality temperature sensor.
This sensor tells the engine computer what temperature your motor is running at and does not affect the guage.
