My car is a V6 231 with the rally guages pack. I have 2 green wires (one for the light, and one for the guage) and only 1 location for a sensor. Which is the correct sensor to operate the light and the guage?

Standard TS168. If your sensor looks like this and you have rally pack gauges it should work. It is NOT listed as an option for our cars in the database that feeds most of the parts vendors, I purchased 2x ones that wouldn't work going off of Summit and Rock Auto. Even Amazon Confirmed fit says "This does not fit 1985 Cutlass Salon". yet I installed mine last weekend and for the first time in years I actually have a Temp gauge that moves!

As long as you have a rally pack that looks like this:

The number of Cylinders your car has shouldn't matter.
