Making Money Part 3

Engine temperature sensor on my van shorted out. $17.50 for the new sensor. Not bad. But it also melted to connector. The connector cost $31. A piece of plastic with a couple bits of metal cost almost twice as much as the actual part.

At least you could find the connector. I used to have a jeep that had the connector for the fuel pump and sending unit that went bad. Nobody sells one, not even the dealer and the few I looked at in junkyards were either toast or close to it. I wound up having to 'rebuild' the one I had.
