    THE SENSOR SENDS INFO TO THE ECU ASWELL AS THE TEMP GUAGE IN THE DASH, SO IF THE SENDER SENDS WRONG INFO, OR NO INFO THE ECU CAN THEN DECIDE TO SEND THE WRONG AMOUNT OF FUEL INTO THE AIR/FUEL MIX SOMETIMES RESULTING IN SLIGHTLY HEAVY OR LEAN FUELING.MINE WOULD SOMETIMES DROP TO ZERO AND THEN FLUCTUATE THIS RESULTED IN A TEMP POWER BLIP AS THE ECU MOMENTARILY WAS ADJUSTING THINGS.

    ARE YOU SURE IT IS THE SENDER, WHAT IS HAPPENING. ON MINE THE TEMP GUAGE SAT LOW AND IT WAS THE THERMOSTAT THAT WAS SHOT

    AS FOR THE LOCATION IM NOT ENTIRELY SURE, ON THE 2.5 V6 IT IS ON THE TOP OF THE ENGINE AND IS GREEN, MAYBE THE SAME BUT AGAIN IM NOT SURE.

    HOPE THIS IS OF HELP. OH AND WHEN YOU SWAP IT MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS COLD!

    Hi mate, thanks for the reply, im sure its the sender as i got it diagnosed last week during the service and it came up as the sensor is no good.

    the guage is basically always on stone cold and sometimes will move to the centre for abit and go back down to cold.

    ive noticed fuel consumption is pretty bad and i read somewhere that it can cause poor fuel consumptions... so it is right then. damn thing!!
