Customer Question

1987 4Runner 22RE
Experiencing long crank times. I checked the ohms on the THERMO-TIME SWITCH and got a reading of 31 which seems good. Then I noticed that the plug on the sensor spins freely. After spinning it a few degrees I checked again and got a reading of 51, which is faulty. This must be the issue yes?
Is there anyway to tighten up the sensor to stop the plug from spinning if I remove it from the TB? Or should I be looking to source a new one?
