noticed my coolent temp gauge sensor was backing out of the head. screwed it back in and tightended it up just to make sure it would stay put.....and it twisted apart. so I put another one in from the parts box. now my temp read higher on the gauge. does this sensor do anything else? if not I won't worry about it.

Re: does the coolent temp gauge sensor do anything else??? (weeblebiker)

the tiny sensor on the side of the head is just the signal for your gauge. the big sensor on the side of the head is the thermo time switch which turns the cold start valve on.
