I did not replace the sensor.

It never occurred to me because it was outside the expansion tank.

Perhaps it was damaged when it was laying around the engine block while I was messing with the hoses ?

But why would a sensor that measures temperature that mounts outside the tank have anything to do with the fluid level inside the tank ? I could understand if there was a problem with the flotation stick.

But how does a temp sensor relate to water level inside the tank ?
