  • Hello, sorry to bother you. Is this how you do a PM on the new format? I was trying to replace the coolant temp sensor yesterday, but I can't seem to find it. I thought it would be in the thermostat housing like it was on my gen-1, but no such luck. I can't seem to find a post with instructions or a video. Do you have any information on this?

    Hey Number4 hope all is well. Well guess what I finally think I figured out what killed my catalytic converter and why I am still having fuel loss in my vehicle. I noticed a few days ago that I have coolant leaking throughout my lower manifold. So upon doing research I found out that my manifold gaskets must be bad and that is why coolant is getting into my engine. So now I plan on replacing the gaskets myself. They sell for $20 and it does not seem to be that hard of a job. Well let's see how it goes... I should be doing it sometime next week. I wonder how long my new cat will last with the manifold in this condition?
