    After thoroughly cleaning and drying the area yesterday, Bill looked carefully at where the ATF was coming from. It appeared to be coming not from a mating surface but instead from around one of the...

    Sending unit threads are the same between the 2.8L and the 3.0L. When the new engine was installed, the previous engine donated its sending units.

    He didn't explain why, but it seems that the wires require the load of a light bulb on each in order to function properly.
