They perform the same function on two different cars:

on 5000 turbo it is called MF temp. sender (among other things).

on 4000 CIS-E it is called he FI temp sender, at least that is what
Rod at thepartsconnection called it.

They are entirely different, but perform the same function for the two
different FI systems.

It is possible for just the guage portion to break.  That might be a
warning that the rest of it will follow soon.

CGT has a separate sender for the temp guage - that is located on top of
the neck, and the FI sender is on the bottom.  Unless the one with the
digi-dash is different than the normal dash guages, but I don't think so.
