1997 SL2
Default Re: Need some advice about my 1995 sl2

Usually fixing the ECTS and connector (while SOLDERING+HEAT SHRINK WRAPPING the splices) helps take care of bad gas mileage issues. Did he use the brass one? Also, was it the one wire sensor or the two wire sensor? This matters since the one-wire sensor controls the gauge and hardly goes out. The two-wire sensor is the ECTS.

Besides, the ECTS+connector is ~$15, so why have a shop do it?

Also, you might want to look into a coolant flush and a new thermostat.. It'll help with the gas mileage and help get any crap out of your cooling system.
