I just replaced the sensors on both of my cars ('89 100Q and
'90 90Q20V), and the same thing happened. Maybe the newer sensors
just read a notch lower? The cars run fine.
On mine (the 100Q), I used to read 2 marks above "C", 3+ in
traffic. Now it reads barely 1 mark above "C", less in cold
weather like today.
