Tell your dad this story (you can verify it if you want to spend endless time searching the thread) about a woman asking for help here - the problem was her car couldn't pass NJ state inspection due to the engine not passing its own emissions self tests with a 'not ready' indication on a reader. The only part she needed was a new coolant sensor but her brother-in-law ignored our advice and insisted 'he' knew better as a mechanic and told her to drive several hundred miles until the car's emission self tests went 'ready'. Weeks went by and ignorance continued without passing state emissions inspection as we strongly suggested to her to print out replies from Saturnfans. She finally convinced her (idiot) bil to replace the one part and voila!, car went 'ready' and passed state inspection within days of just replacing this part - the coolant sensor. Below are two pictures, the faulty one and the correct replacement. It takes less than a minute to remove and examine.................to remove all doubt.
