Wayne, your concern is one that I am hoping people here have insight into. Both the big and small computer versions call the sensor ďoil temperature,Ē both use a thermistor with identical heat/resistance curves over an identical temperature range, and both are located in the oil flow on the head. So I donít know if itís important to read the oil temperature AT THE HEAD or just anywhere that the oil is hot enough to tell the computer that the engine is cold, up to temperature, or too hot.
Pete, I remembered the ďresistor fake-outĒ trick and I even found and re-read the old thread to see if there was anything relevant in it. Unfortunately, the problem I really need to solve is relocating the sensor for clearance reasons. Getting more accurate readings would be a bonus but Iíve lived with it the stock way for 200,000 miles between my two 98 EVís and itís not bad.
Thank you both.
