OK so I got my upgraded housing kit from Tousley the other week, put it on and everything went very well. Last week I was cleaning the throttle body and noticed coolant on top of the housing where the temperature sensor screws in. When I went to remove the sensor (which I put teflon tape on when installed), it snapped off (pictures attached). I assumed it was a faulty sensor (bad quality, whatever), so I bought a new one obviously. Got everything put back together this last weekend (did the valve cover gasket as well), and after a week of driving, I checked the coolant temperature sensor while checking the oil, and sure enough there is coolant on top of the housing again. Any ideas?
