pull wire remove w 5/8" -3/8's drive socket. I usually have the new
one handy and when the old one comes out-right in w/ the new one.
First (when cool) I would remove the radiator cap then re-install-this
will aid in less antifreeze coming out. You can siphon out if you
want(gallon or so) I usually don't. Where you buy(I'd recommend GM/AC
Delco parts) let them know that it is the sendor for the gauge-not the
sensor for the computer. Two totally different things. Location-
right(pass)side of engine block, between the front 2 spark plugs.. My
recommend-unplug old one and try to plug in new one temporarily, to
make sure you got the right one. Good luck firstname.lastname@example.org

oh yeah another thing-when you remove the wire and ground out-if this
procedure pegs the temp gauge on the dash, then you are on the right
trail. Reason being, there are other things that can cause a inop t/
gauge but....your advise is, in my opinion, the most popular issue
with these gauges! That, my friend, is my 2 cents worth, on sale
today for FREE! firstname.lastname@example.org
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think the sender for the gauge is on
the driver's side of the block right beside the steering shaft down low.
The actual ECT that feeds back to the computer is under the throttle body
behind the serp tensioner right smack beside the EGR. I just did my ECT and
it is almost impossible to do it without removing the belt tensioner. The
actual dash gauge sensor should be a piece of cake to swap out though.
I hope this helps?

Andrew-you may be correct on your second statement but this gentleman
has a 93(hope S-10, didn't say)and unlike your 95 GMC,(which may be on
the left side-or 96 may have been the first year for that design but I
believe your right but maybe not, I'll check one today).
Anyway....I'll update and I'll stand by my previous statements.
BLAZER IS TAHOE LT FULL SIZE. WITH VORTEC ENGINE. SO FAR THIS IS
REALLY HELPFUL ASSUMING IT IS CORRECT, I AM HOPING TO GET THIS PIECE
PUT IN TODAY. I WAS QUOTED OVER $100 TO HAVE THIS PRO INSTALLED, AM I
BEING TAKEN FOR A RIDE OR IS THAT PRICE ACCURATE?
When you say Tahoe LT again, is it-fifth digit vin# s or t? Probably
not and you probably have a 'big' Blazer.Thanks to GM for the
confusion-there was a 'big' tahoe LT and an S-10 Blazer Tahoe LT in
those years....93, 94ish. Anywho...all my above info pertains to a
fifth digit s or t/s-10 or t-10 'mini' Blazer but...if you have a
bigger one, I don't specialize in those but they probably follow the
same procedure/problems/cures. $100 is slightly high but...GM dealer
would be more per hour than your average shop plus if GM origional
equipt. used that would make it more also. Plus this job probably
wouldn't take an hour but they may have a minimum charge. If your
$100 quote becomes $200 and all they do is a sender... well. Lets
hope it's $100 and it gets fixed...good email@example.com
