Hey guys,

I am replacing the radiator in a 95 and just noticed that the new radiator does not have a connection for a coolant sensor... I am wondering if there is any potential damage by installing the new radiator (w/o sensor). A bit bummed that this new radiator claimed to be an exact fit to OEM. It sizes up well (eye-balling), but the passenger side plastic end does not have the coolant sensor. I cant afford to let the call sit while waiting on a replacement, and the old radiator has a hairline crack that is about 3 inches long. Any insight would help. Thanks fellas

looks like this is the Low Coolant Indicator (LCI), sounds like it is only an indicator and has no effect on the PMC. Can anyone confirm?

You cant run the car without the sensor,it will gush. the rads dont come with sensors. you have to transplant all parts from the bum rad.

An older model without the sensor might have had a rad that would fit the mounting area identically but just not have the sensor mount point. Yeah the radiator "fits" but it's not really the right one and I would not leave the sensor hanging uninstalled.

You need to swap the sensor over from your old radiator.
