i was curious on this one, since im considering getting back into a cadillac seville since ive been without mine for almost half a year now. how hard would it be to add an aftermarket water temp gauge like something from autometer? mounting it inside the car is no issue, but where would i put the sensor? id also like to add an oil pressure gauge, i was thinking i could put that somewhere inline with the oil cooler somehow, since i know oil is pressurized there. the trans temp gauge i can also figure out on my own but i really want to know how to setup the water temp gauge. any suggestions?

u can add the coolant temp on your dash through the on board diagnostics
id rather have a real 2 1/16" gauge right in my face, so i dont miss it.

Check this place out for gauges and they come with all sensors....www.teltek.us They have some cool gauges and other stuff..
ill check it out, but ive been happy with my autometer stuff so far. i might try out some of their digital gauges on this one.

You can add whatever you want......it's always about what you want........and how much money you are wanting to spend. I rebuilt a Chevy S10 project last year and have a total of 8 Autometer gauges. Their quality and customer service is second to none.

A standard gauge is fine. Newer electronically controlled ones include programmable functions such as warning indications (Autometer Nexus line). There are also new products that access the ECU directly through the OBDII connector such as the DashDAQ (http://dashdaq.com/) which is fully programmable. Or here's another hi-tech option (www.aeroforcetech.com/GMtech.html).

As far as sensors, you can always tee in where the factory ones are for oil pressure. Tees don't work well for water temp. as you want the sensor in the flow of water, not in a stagnant tee. I have not looked yet, but there are usually spare bosses available near the stock sensor. If you have a FSM, you can find them easily. If you don't, I can take a look for you.

Have fun.
