[DML] Re: Sensors under manifold

I agree taking out the sensors to clean the probe end is a good idea.
I do not agree with the use of teflon tape. The sensors need to have a
good ground and I have seen where the teflon tape can electrically
insulate the sensors from ground. Screwing the brass sensor into the
aluminum pipe tightly should make a leak-free seal. Pressure testing
before you put the intake manifold back on will tell you if you have
any leaks to fix. If a sensor should leak a small amount of tightening
should stop any leak without the need for teflon tape.
