quick temp sender question..

Between football and chili I am installing a new temp sender. It is cold and rainy here so (95 NAS SW is in garage and I have a couple of Labs and was wondering how much coolant will come out when I remove old sender? Not enough to worry about or bucket under car?

Thanks Board!

Usually if you release the pressure cap and then put it back on the suction is enough to not allow it to flow out too fast..

Hah!!!!

Haven't had my finger in a hole that slickery in a while....then I dropped the new sender....then it looked like a green fire hose....then one of my daughters came out to see what was going on and said "Dad, what the hell"....then I used my invaluable 12 inch needle nosed pliers and retrieved said dropped sender...more green fire hose....new sender in....

And my money is on the Cowboys, or at least the spread....

Dogs are fine...and no, Vegemite eater, I dint snap it...but it was kinda funny...

Have to double check size, but started adding these a few years back:

Pop the pressure cap, drain a bit, replace sender, add fluid back. No lost fluid, no dead animals... And repeat for water pump every 3 years ;-)

Thanks RT! Mebbe next time.

Pleased to announce; no dead animals and gauge now working properly. Now on to repairing defroster grid!
