2000 Ford Escort ZX2 temperature gauge gets no reading Replaced temperature sensor radiator full of coolant Any Ideas?
It will depend on which engine you have. The 2.0 DOHC has 2 sensors; one for the temp gauge and one for the ECM. The temp sensors are both located on the thermostat housing; one is on top and one is on the bottom of the housing. The Sensor on the bottom of the thermostat housing is for the temp guage. The other i believe may be for the fan but it does not match…
There are two sensors for coolant on the thermostat housing. One on the top that tells the fan to come on and one on the bottom out of sight you can barely get to that signals temp at dash. Just replaced both on my 1998 Escort zx2. Take off the t-stat housing to get to the one on the bottom. One was 20.00, the other 25.00 at Auto Zone.
The sensor on the thermostat housing is a cooling fan switch. Cooling fan switch closes the circuit to engage the cooling fan(s) when the optimum temperature is reached. When not replaced, cooling system fans will either remain continually "on" or not function causing the engine to overheat, internal engine damage and/or temperature light illumination.
coolant temperature sensor are located where the coolant runs in the block near the thermostat housing normally the connector are on top of the sensor and the sensor itself screws in with a deep socket. The temperature sensor is usaully located where the coolant runs OUT of the engine close to thermostat housing.
