    Best bet on the plugs you need is to go to a salvage yard

    The sensor should be fine.

    2x on the plugs... I ended up making my own. Even the ones at the yard will be brittle. A couple female end plugs that are snug and a good fit piece of high temp rubber work well. Time to get creative! lol

    I got my plugs off a 4g Accord.

    for the plugs, just use two female connectors. that's what i'm doing with my ECT sender. Worked perfect for over 3 years so far. it looks ugly but, it works! Welcome aboard

    just generic, crimp on the end of the wire female ends. most electric connection type kits will have some of the bigger ones in there. I used one of those and painfully bent it to the right size. Be easier to get a closer size tho
