Correct Temp Sensor for Gauge
« on: May 03, 2024, 12:55:31 PM »
I need to replace the coolant temp sensor in my Eagle. I see that they’re are two options. The first is the Standard Motor Products TX27 with a plug on it.
The other is the Standard Motor Products TS219. This one has a bolt on the top.

Which one do I need to make my gauge read correctly? I would replace both, but I am not using the stock ignition or carb, so I shouldn’t need the one that communicates with the ECU.

The correct one is the TS219.   The AMC part number is J3233831 if you want to double-check the interchange.

Thank you, that’s the one I figured it was. I would’ve looked at the ones on my car, but it’s 1700 miles away haha
