Between superchargers, cold air intakes, and other engine upgrades, there are plenty of aftermarket upgrades that can help bring more oxygen into your Ford Mustang’s engine compartment. Regardless of how much you modify your engine bay, however, there is no way to get around the scorching hot temperatures under the hood of your muscle car.
The combustion cycle combined with all of the electricity and heat that is moving throughout the engine compartment while the car is in motion can lead to extreme temperatures, and it is important to constantly be aware of what is occurring around your motor. In short, you will want to keep your engine happy, and the best way to do that is to ensure that the temperature under the hood is always both workable and safe.
You might ask, how can I monitor the temperature of the engine compartment while I am driving? Well, that is where the Mustang temperature sending unit comes into play! Ford Mustang temperature sending units mount in your lower intake manifold and send signals to the temperature gauge on your dash. Communication is always key, and thanks to the hard work done by your sending unit, the engine compartment’s temperature will display clearly on your dashboard.
Also known as a water temperature sending unit, the Ford Mustang temperature sending unit is one of the smallest, yet most important components in your entire vehicle. The unit is able to do its job thanks in large part to the accompanying switches and wiring components that help power this essential component. In order for the proper reading to appear on your dashboard, you are counting on the various switches and wiring components to provide the temperature sending unit that power that it needs to do its job.
Without a fully functional Mustang temperature sending unit, your engine could be overheating without you even knowing it. If the temperature gauge in your muscle car doesn't seem to be working quite as it should, the problem likely resides with a faulty water temperature sending unit. Replacement Mustang temperature sending units are relatively cheap compared to having to deal with the damage that could come as a result of an overheated engine!
