coolant temp sensor

The single wire sensor in the intake. Does it need teflon tape or pipe "dope". Does the sensor ground to the intake since it has only one wire? The sensor is brass and I dont use anything on brass fittings. How much coolant can I expect to loose when I remove it.

Use a little dope at the back end of the threads to avoid leakage but still let it ground. Just have the new one ready to go when you screw the old one out, just a small mess.
