As long as the sensor is in the water flow you should be fine.

I'd have to see a picture of what you're talking about to really understand, I think. The main thing is, both should be up front, where the water is coming out of the engine and going to the radiator, because that's where it's hottest. If things aren't set up that way, then either the heater won't heat well, or the sensor will always read colder than the engine really is.



Happy motoring! =)

I smile a lot. It makes people wonder what I'm up to...

If you want it to be original the two should be swapped around.
The way it is set up now means that the heater hose doesn't get the hottest water to the heater which is where the thermostat is. The temp would be reading a smidge hotter as well.
