Default Broken GM IAT

My IAT temperature had been stuck at 70F for a while now and I finally got some time to troubleshoot. I eventually checked the sensor itself and turns out that the sensor wire had snapped within the ceramic cage.

I had it mounted to the stock cross-over tube via high-temp RTV.

My question is: Is my mounting likely just going to rattle a replacement to death as well, or did I likely just have a fragile sensor?

I think you had a fragile sensor.

it happens, but it's not that common. a little silicone on the fragile bits of your next one wouldn't hurt

Thanks to you both. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't repeating a mistake.
