· Most bypass a little water before they open, but is it enough to get a good reading, and/or does that matter. Once it is open it would be reading the correct water temp for sure. Just remembered that some early 289/302 engines have a sensor in the thermostat housing, which would put it past the stat. I don't think it is a gauge sensor however.

Water Temperature Sensor Adapter for Upper Radiator Hose ...

· Running with no thermostat may cause an engine to run too cool, as the radiator doesn't have anything to keep the coolant from going through and losing heat- which is why racing engines running no thermostat usually have a restrictor in its place. If you're running an oil temp sensor, you'll find its temperature is very close to the coolant's.

· When the coolant temp sensor shows 190° Fahrenheit (87° C), lightly touch the upper radiator hose. You should feel a definite warming up of the upper radiator hose (compared to its temperature at the beginning of the test). If the hose does not feel like it's heating up, don't worry about it just yet, continue to the next step.

Getting it wrong: Misdiagnosing a cooling system problem ...

· First, the car’s temperature sensor is immersed in the coolant of the closed system, whereas you can only point the infrared gun at the outside of a hose or metal component, so the IR gun is never going to tell you the actual coolant temperature. And you may get substantially-varying readings on the rubber hoses, metal radiator necks, and thermostat housings. Second, the temperature …

temp difference from upper and lower radiator hoses ...

· I have one temp sensor on the upper rad hose, one for the lower rad hose, one for oil temp attached to my GReddy sandwhich plate, and an EGT. The temp sensors for the coolant seem to be reading too high so we're still checking the wiring and waiting for some advice from PLX. It's about 30 degrees hotter than what the ECU reads on the upper rad hose temp sensor and 4-6 degrees hotter in the lower rad hose temp sensor.

· You could possibly split the hose and put a housing in-line to house the sensor, but putting a temp sensor in a hose will not give you the correct engine temperature. It is not the coolant circulated throughout the engine, but bypassed coolant which is either going into the engine or coming out of it (making the side trip through a radiator of one sort or another).
