Does anyone know where the drain plug is for the engine block? I usually hook up my water temp gauge to these and I don't want to spend all day looking for it if there is one and where it might be. Thanks!!!
Yeah, all engines aren't the same. On my 350, I used the hole in the head for my gauge. The duratec just isn't the same.cut the radiator hose? I have never done anything like that before. I have installed this same type gauge before and I usually go off the engine blocks drain plug for the coolant. I am definitaly not cutting any hoses. Plus the fitting is a threaded brass piece. .
how the PCM read's the coolant temp is via the cylinder head temp sensor, its long and extends down into the block, so basically its reading from the block to the head... hense the reason it doesnt move the needle much.any way to get a tee fitting to work for the cars coolant temp sensor and the autometer sensor? or will that cause a problem? I don't see why it would.... It's just a matter of having enough space i guess.
