HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Coolant temp gauge...

Post  aixgelo78 on Tue Mar 13, 2012 8:26 pm

Drove the car to the gas station today for the first time ever!!! not to mention around the block a few times.

My temp gauge stayed really low, it practically did not move. Is this normal or is it just my car? i remember it working when I first drove the car, Im assuming that the LS1 just runs a lot cooler....


TIA
Chris

Mine stays on the first line while driving and not in stop and go traffic. It gets into the middle area when in traffic. Then it gets near the red when the hose bursts in traffic.

LOL. I just inspected my driver's side hose and it was hitting the alternator making a deep gouge on the brand new radiator hose. Kinda sucks because this damn car holds so much coolant.

My gauge only moved 1/8th of an inch, but my fan went on as it should.

What temp sensor are you guys usuing? I am using a VDO#323421 as specified in sloan's book. It is located using an adaptor fitted in the rear of the passenger side head.

At cruise my gauge needle is level (horizonta)l, in town traffic it moves to a point about half way between horizontal and the upper red line.

Mine is the same sender in the passenger side head, factory fans, LS PCM controlling the Porsche fan relays and a new turbo radiator that has the A/C condenser in front of it. You are in Fl the ambient temp may make a difference.

I've got an Autometer water temp gauge and it basically read 180-190 all the time in traffic. Only time it goes higher is on the track.

Thank you for all the input guys. I am using the same vdo sender as mike, as specified in the manual. At least I know I have a reference point that my gauge is off. I will now try to shop for one.

I will do an autometer gauge later on, I have to catch up on $$$.

Doc, when your autometer gauge shows 190, on what line is the Porsche VDO gauge needle?

Check out a couple of radiator hose protectors I made out of some stainless (on the left). I recommend doing the same with whatever engine you have in there.

Is it possible to use a ls1 spec coolant temps while I wait for my vdo gauge sensor to come in?

I just used a cheap scan tool I have that does a data stream to keep track of coolant temp till I got my porsche guage to read correctly with the right temp sender.

I believe it's blue/yellow for the gauge and blue/green for the warning light.
