i replaced my water pump yesterday and installed everything back and when i start the car it had a small leak where the coolant temp sensor is...any help?
Thanks man your info was very helpful i appreciate itYou can get the tape from a hardware store, Walmart, lots of places I'd imagine...or you can get the sealant paste from an autoparts store, can't say for certain if they'll have the tape or not but either product will do.
Just have to use enough, not sure how else to describe it but it's just there to fill in the threads better and prevent the water/coolant from flowing past.
Ok ill do that thanks manSince you've already refilled your coolant system, the plumbers tape would be your best bet. Have an assistant ready to apply the tape on the coolant temp sensor threads while you plug the hole with your thumb so coolant doesn't leak everywhere.......... or drain the system again.
