New member...could use a favor

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am the proud owner of a new to me 99 c2 coupe. I've owned a boxster, a boxster s and now a new zenith blue 911, and I couldn't be more impressed and stoked with this car. Can't wait to participate on these forums.

Anyhow, I've got a favor to ask. I notice a few drops of coolant behind the rear driver's side exhaust. So I investigate and instead of a coolant tank leak (been there done that with the boxster), I'm thinking I might have just had a coolant sensor that was not fully inserted. the reason for this suspicion is that when I looked at the sensor there appeared to be crusty coolant residue in that area and the sensor end was pointing in a more or less four o'clock orientation (if you are looking down at the tank and engine fromt the top). so I pushed it to a three o'clock orientation and heard an audible click (so now, if looking from the top, the sensor end is basically in line with the rear axle, pointing to the passenger side of the car).

So here is my question: is this position the loose position (i.e., the coolant-will-spew-everywhere-if-I-turn on-the-car-position, or is it the tight, correct position. If someone could take a quick glance of this area of their engine and confirm that my position is or is not correct, I'd be super appreciative.

I'm hoping that this was my problem, but thought I'd inquire of the board before I turn the car on to test my hypothesis. Thanks. (pictures coming soon!). Scott.
