Default Help: coolant temp sensor connector

Does anyone know which gauge should be used when crimping insulated wire connectors?

97 SL1 OEM parts
The wires on the connector are labeled as "0.35mm/GA22". However, 0.35mm=AWE27, AWE22=0.64mm.

Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

wiring for sensors(or basicly anything relating to the PCM) should be soldered, not crimped. anytime when you need a precise signal, crimping is not recommended.

Essentially, I agree. I actually have never been a fan of crimping. I have soldered all connections, whether for power, wires for trailer lights or speakers then use heat shrink for insulating the connection. However apparently Saturn feels crimping to be adequate because the replacement connector kit that they sell for the ECT sensor comes with two crimp butt splices that have heat shrink insulation on them which melts and seals the connection from moisture. I replaced my connector but I still soldered mine.
