Does anyone know what oil temp sender is the correct one for our cars?

Unfortunately I don't. I would think if you take the old sender to a place that sells VDO gauges they should be able to ID the old one. Although they might need to know the part number on the existing gauge? However I had a quick look online and it looks like many of them share the same resistance curve (although there were a few different ones), and you just have to pick the size and thread.

Next time I have the grill off I'll see if I can have a better look at mine and measure its resistance (although the A/C compressor is kind of in the way!).

Has anyone got their oil temperature gauge out at the moment. I have had a reply from VDO and they need the numbers off the casing. Don't really fancy a dash stripdown but if I have to I will

I'll have a look at mine tomorrow and let you know the part number since getting a shot of the gauge is much easier!

My gauge has this number on it: 310.274/9/27 2.91 (I think the last bit might be the date of manufacture). I'll add a photo when I get home.

And a pic of the gauge, I also added the number on it to the facebook chat about oil temperature too.
