85 Vanagon 1.9l
I have two sensors on my thermostat housing. One is for temperature and I assume the other for coolant level. The one for the coolant level is a single wire sensor that I need to replace but I don't know what the technical name is, I cannot find it anywhere. When I search for it the only one I can find is 4 in the coolant overflow bottle . Can someone help me by naming this sensor? My indicator blinks on occasion and when it does seems to idle poorly.

That is why you should never assume... Instead, get a shop manuel and then you would KNOW that they are both temp sensors. The simple one is for the dash gauge and the other is for the FI system.
