Temp Sensor


Club Member
I just fitted a new temp sensor to a 280Z and it does not screw all the way in until the seal hits the housing. The seal sits about 2 turns short of the housing but does not seem to leak, have not run it right up to temp yet. It is the newer one piece sensor - if anyone wants a new sensor that needs a collar let me know!

Is this standard? I put the knackered one back in and that looks to seat proud of the housing as well but not so much.

from memory, I don't think they do seat all the way down.

Here is what mine looks like. Have taken it up to temperature now and no leak, it just surprised how far away the seal is!20220624_164047.jpg
