But first--check the rubber boot surrounding the MFTS and determine 
if it's been filling up with coolant due to seepage from the MFTS. If 
you find it's wet inside that boot, your gauge malfunction might 
possibly be "cured" by drying and cleaning the contacts. In any 
event, make sure that you either remove/discard the boot altogether 
or at least cut a large "drain hole" on the bottom to prevent future
