EGT Probe Hole

Okay, so I'm selling my EGT probe off my Insight and ordering some DiPricol analog gauges (Fuel, Trans, Boost, EGT). I already have a buyer, and I don't have my new gauges yet.

My question is this: Is there something I can put in place of the EGT Probe for a while? I can't drive around with a hole in my manifold LOL.

Any tips for removing the EGT probe? I don't wanna strip my threads.

1/8" NPT plug, pick one up cheap at any local parts/hardware store.

As for "tips" on removing the probe............ Well, I hope you used anti seize when you initially installed it. If not, try hitting it with a little penetrating oil (cold exhaust, of course)

Okay, I'll try AutoZone. Where else would have it?

And what do you mean by anti-sieze? Like Loc-Tite? (Sorry, I'm an internet mechanic. ) And I'll try some WD40 or some PB Blaster on it.

something like copper grade anti seize or silver or what not. All auto parts should carry it.

When i put in my original EGT probe, i failed to do that, played hell trying to get a plug threaded in there had to tap out the hole just a wee bit more to get my plug to set in. Now it has anti seize and when my EGT probe shows up (any day now ) i will have no problem with the R&R

Lowes / homedepot may be a better bet.

well, Loctite makes an anti seize , Anit-seize prevents galling, seizing and corrosion, used in hi temp applications usually. Makes later removal, MUCH easier.

hit it with the PB Blaster when cold, and get a little hi-temp anti seize when you're at the store, use it on the new probe.

Shoot, IIRC we slapped some Loc-Tite on when I installed it. Not sure though. Looks like I may be waiting for my new gauges to come in before I remove my Insight.
