Where is the water temp. sensor on an 83 280zxt? The temp. sensor on the dash is not working.

Also I was not getting heat just cold air out of my heater. What I did is got some hose and metal pipes, and by-passed the valve. Works for me. I took out all the vacuum lines and just run the air to the defrost all of the time. I turn of the fan(blower) when it gets warm enough.

The sending unit for the temperature gauge on my 83 280ZX N/A is located on the front of the thermostat housing. I'm not sure if it's in the same place in the turbo models or not.

hope this helps.

I looked at the thermostat housing and found what looks like the sending unit. It has a little bit of frayed wire coming from it. Now I just have to find the wire that once connected to it. The previous owner had the wiring in this car all screwed [email protected]#$% Thanks... :)
