I noted on another thread a discussion on changing the Coolant Sending unit and the Temp Gauge sending unit..
Not wanting to hijack that thread I figured I should post my own inquiry..

I touched on this a few months ago on another thread RE:My Sons Rodeo but at that time the tread was getting kinda long and unfortunately I didn't get enough info to clearly understand the repair/replacement of that part..

Did find this link posted by another member:
http://forum.planetisuzoo.com/viewtopic.php?t=15158

My Q is this, is the Temp Gauge Sender the "SINGLE" Wire sending unit to the LEFT of the Coolant Sender (Circled in RED in that links PIC)?

Also I see the link is based on a Tropper instead of the 3.2 V6 in the 95 Rodeo..
As such is the replacement procedure the same on the RODEO and is there anything specifically diff in doing this if the vehicle is 2WD as opposed to 4WD?

TIA, MIKE

No this is for my Sons 95, heck I'm not even sure the 01 has the sending units in the same place? I sure hope not though..

If ya hit that link ther is a PIC of what I believe to be the Gauge sending unit just to the L/ of the Sender circled in RED..

Cool, I hope your right and someone does chime in.. Assuming it's much like the TROOPER repair it doesn't sound all that bad, just takes a little time..

Yea I figure the 2WD should be easier to do this with.. I'm thinking removing the Trans cross member should be easy and a floor jack on the Trans tail should allow the engine to tip forward until the Trans tail is touching (almost) touching the underside of the Trans hump.. D/Shaft "should" flex on the U-Joints I reckon...

Ya know it may be a very good idea to remove the gauges and make sure the wire is plugged in back there before I do anything... Is the Gauge cluster easy to get out?

Thanks for the heads up, after looking things over it doesn't seem to bad a job.. Having never done one before in such a tough location I really wanted to make sure I wasn't in for any big surprises..

His truck is only 2WD and it doesn't appear there is much in the way.
