Yup..mines happening on the 90 V8 5spd I got here. My
91 V8 5spd is fine...with 3/4's more miles than the 90
5spd. 90 5spd has 92k...91 5spd's got 217K.
My fuel gauge is fine. I know that
symtom...gas/coolant gauge goes out....rad fan
stops..but as I said, my gas & rad fan works no
I'll get in touch with Ingo & see if this sounds
How bout the coolant sensor that workes the gauge??
That on the driver side front head..or is that the one
on the back of the pass side head?
