View Full Version : H2O gauge probs..??HELP

O.k. I finally got around to installing my water temp gauge. I had to unhook the CAI to get to the sensor. I hooked everything up and now the car won't start unless its wide open.. It now idles at 2000+ and throttle response is lagging... What did I forget??

Could this be caused by unhooking the original gauge?

it very well could be your problem.

iirc, your computer may need that signal for reference. what i would do is get a "T" fitting and put the senor on one side and your gauge sensor of the other side.

that should clear up your problem

and you may want to double check all of your vacum lines, hose clamps and make sure you filter is "seated" right.

I'm pretty sure your right, because I laid the sensor next to a heat source and the problem cleared up some..
