So I changed my IC to TB stiff boost hose and took the car out for a run
at night in rain. After pushing the pedal to the metal for a little
while I hear a whooossh coming out of the engine compartment and I
notice 0 boost on the gauge. After an inspection this morning it seems
that the stupid temperature potentiometer fell out.
Does anybody have this part? Please contact me if you do since I'm a
daily driver and I need this ASAP. My email address is [email protected]
Also, if I can't get this part until some time next week ... is there any way I could stick something in that hole and drive my car?
Thnx for your help

Re: PLEASE HELP, POTENTIOMETER FELL OUT!! (G60Dud3)

umm its held on by a clipped wire set? Even if you forget to clip the sensor in the tube, it won't go far..

umm i'm an idiot ... I went back and double checked all the wires and indeed the potentiometer is attached to a wire set. I'm so happy that i don't have to pay another $200
