[DML] Re: Sensors under manifold

In fact, the Thermal Time Switch is supposed to have a sealing washer.
The threads will not seal, they are only to tighten up the switch so
they will never "cut" the Teflon Tape like a tapered pipe thread
might. My guess is the P. O.  lost the sealing washer and tried to
stop the leak with tape. He did not realize he insulated the switch
from ground. Just another example of the kind of thing you have to
"undo" as you try to get everything running right. And another example
of the pitfalls of using Teflon Tape. Imagine having to go back under
the intake manifold because you wrapped a sensor with a little too
much tape!
