I was using a 210 on 190 off (a little low) sending unit supplied by an online company and they seem to have a high failure rate. I would like to use something that I can get at a local auto store. What would the best open and close temperature be for this to work properly and not get too high, and does anyone have a part number. Thanks in advance.
take one off an older Escort, I think they're 220 on, 210 off, complete with pigtail connector the junkyard charged me a grand total of nothing last time I got one. i actually need to get another one for a different car next time I go.
