    Can I remove the sending unit and replace with my aftermarket one, if I leave the sensor in it should still function for the low coolant light correct? , or is there another place to put a aftermarket Guage sensor? TIA

    not sure what year this is but on the 94/95 there are two sensors. One for the computer and one for the dash. Most people take the one for the dash out and replace it which means the dash gauge will be dead but it will still operate as normal. Another option is to get a mount that goes in the upper radiator hose or if you want you can drill/tap a hole next to the stock sensor and add yours.

    I think up to 98 had two sensors.
