My first question is does anyone have the Bently manual on cd for an 87 5ktq that may want to burn me a copy for a few bucks, or at least tell me the cheapest place to get one on either cd or hard copy? My second question is whats up with my heat/temp guage? Lately my temp guage has not been working or has been sporadically and the radiator fan nor the turbo fan will come on. Also I really have no heat in my car. Does anyone know if these problems are all linked? I appreciate any help.

theres 2 switches that i'm in the process of replacing that you might have to too.
1.) where the top radiator hose connects to the head, on the bottom of that flange, theres a 4 wire switch that has to do with you temperature gauge inside the car. It's brass colored. This switch also controls other functions which I cant remember.
2.) below your bottom radiator hose, theres a switch that controls when you're fan comes on. This has 2 or 3 wires connected to it. Also check fuses and make sure your fan switches are good. I think someone in here can tell you how to overide or jump over these switches to short it out and test the fan.
I dont know why you wouldn't be getting heat in your car, unless you mean you're vents arent working. Thats another problem all together.. vacuum system.
I also got a new temp gauge (well, used) from Chris at force5auto.com He's pretty cheap on used parts and fast too. Hope this helps.
