Can you remove the sensor from a coolant bottle and put it in to a coolant bottle that has never had a sensor in it before. Reason i ask is because im thinking of doing the mod but i dont have the sensor yet..

Are you talking about the e-series sensor or on the x series. On the x series it's not in the overflow bottle. It's in the radiator. 8-)

he rang me but had to put his phone down cause a cop car was next to him. when the cop moved away he called again. he was following me for a reason though, i think we were gonna work on my ute at the time.
