Temp gauge sender for '97?

Anyone know where the sender is for the stock temperature gauge on a '97?

yeah I know next to the fuel rail in the front of the engine, it bolts in going verticaly and there is only 1 wire on it. I can take a pic in a day or so.

That would be cool. I'll look myself, but a picture would be nice too.

Thanks!

Mike,

Is the connector with one wire the sensor you're talking about? See the second picture Closup.jpg.

The workshop manual says the connector with two wires is the "Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor."

Is the two-wire one the workshop manual is talking about for the ECU? Perhaps the one for the gauge is the single-wire one?

Easy way to tell, when the engine is up to running temperature..... shut the engine off, disconnect one of them, then turn the key back to "on" (don't start it though) and see if the gauge still registers the same. If you disconnect the gauge sender it should either go to full hot or not move, depending on if it's grounded against something as it's laying there.
