Yeah I had to mess with my sending unit today to test it...again
turns out i was right with the location...you bought the right part
Before you try to install:
1: With the engine off, disconnect the wire from the temperature sending unit.
2: Switch on the ignition, without starting the engine - the temp guage on the instrument panel should be at the cold mark. Using a jumper wire...ground the sending unit wire. The needle for the temp guage should now be pointing at the hot mark (or past)
caution: dont leave jumper wire connected longer than neccesary
a) if the guage doesn't perform as described, the problem may
be in the guage or wiring
b) if the guage does perform as described, the sending unit is defective...go ahead and replace it.
