Does your car have 4 O2 sensors or just...

It is really much easier to take the engine and gearbox out together. Yes you will have to remove a few more things, drain coolant etc. but none of that is hard to do. Plus you can...

Ross,

The stepper motor from Jag is quite expensive but I found that the exact same motor, mount and all is used in a Renault Megane from the late 90's and those units are cheap as chips :)

You probably know this already but the temp gauge readings displayed on the dashboard and the temp read by the ECM are measured by two different sensors.

So it is quite possible to have the gauge...
