Temp Sensor *FIX*
Everyone remember how my Engine Temperature Sensor never went above 125*F? Well, Padgett directed me to this green wire right under the TB. I saw it, but could never get in there, until now! I have the throttle/TV cable assembly removed, and now have clear access to this sucker. There are two things, one which I think is the actual temp sensor, which has a connector, versus just one wire. Then directly below it, is a little green wire, which seems to connect to something, but i'm not sure what. Well, the larger connector was just fine in terms of it'* contacts, however, the little green wire wasn't properly sealed, and 16 years of grease, grime, oil, and just all around crap got on it, and it was completly covered in the stuff. I am surprised it actually worked! So, I cleaned it up, and connected everything back up, turned the ignition on, and noticed the temp moved about 10*F from where it was before I started. Mind you, I have not tested this.. and I do not know for certain that this fixed it, I cannot drive the car, I cannot start the car.. she'* immobilized so I can't test it [otherwise i would have]. So, for all of you LN3 owners out there that has a malfunctioning temp readout, hop to this! I would have taken pics, but my mom is in Chicago for the weekend, and has the camera. I can take some sometime this week or next weekend if you want them, that badly.
