Alright, new problem or question I guess. Trying to install the new ECT sensor. Got the old one out fine. But I can't get the new one OR the old one to go back in. I'm afraid to strip the threads and I double checked the new sensor and it is correct.

Anyone else done this and had a hard time installing it?

By the way, the most I can get either in now with the car cool is with two threads showing. What's wrong?

Thanks
Chris

Its the metal (brass) sensor. But the thing is that I can't get the old one in all the way either. Is it supposed to go in all the way so that the nut of the sensor is flush against the housing? Cuz right now they both, the old and the new sensor, show about two threads outside of the housing. I'm stumped.

thats ok it doesn't fit all the way flush.You might want to put some white teflon or plumers tape around it first though.

What does the teflon and the plumbers tape do?
