The sensor used for displaying the engine coolant temperature on the gauge in the dash is located near the thermostat housing. I have included a link that has pictures that show its location. Just click on the pictures to enlarge them. When you do, you can see the wires that go to the sensor. Good Luck, Greg
That would be the engine coolant temp sensor for the dash gauge only. The sensor near the thermostat housing is the engine temp sensor for the ECM.
Your engine coolant temperature gauge has a sensor ( there is also a engine coolant temperature sensor that is used for the computer / PCM )
Hi, It sounds like you have a fuel level sensor that is starting to go bad. This sensor is located in the fuel tank, and depending on the age of the van, will probably have to be replaced.
usually on the left of the engine between the first two spark plugs
It does not have a coolant sensor, But it does have a temperature gauge sensor and you can find it screewed into the driverside head between the first 2 spark plugs up front,
My fuel gauge, odometer and radiator gauge isn't working and my radio says locked. How can I fix this?
seriously? it tells you what temperature you engine coolant/antifreeze is. that is how your gauge on the dash knows what your temperature is at.
Top rear of the engine next to the distributor.
its on the coolant bypass pipe, right front corner of cylinder head near alternator
Check actual engine temperature with a thermometer--if in acceptable range temperature sensor or gauge may be defective
sticking float on the fuel pump, or malfunction in the float
could be a bad sensor a bad gauge or a broken or disconnected wire
There is'nt one on the guage cluster but there is on the motor up by the thermostat housing
NO. it has NOTHING to do with the engine starting. It works the fuel gauge in the dash only.
On a 1986 Chevy Celebrity V6 the sensor that operates the gauge or temp light is on the head by the firewall at the rear of the engine. There is another temperature sensor on the water outlet. There is another temperature sensor that controls the cold start injector it is on the intake manifold next to the fuel rail. Fuel injected models only.
A signal from the temperature sensor on the engine.
top of the engine. back of the engine next to the distributor..
Hi, Probably 95% of the time, or more, the problem with a fuel gauge not reading correctly is the fuel level sensor. This sensor is located in the fuel tank and that tank will have to be drained and dropped to get to the sensor. Sorry about that. Good Luck
It is most likely the oil pressure sensor, located on the front of the engine block near the oil filter. There is also a slim possibility that the gauge in the instrument cluster is defective.
It could be a faulty gauge, a faulty sensor, or a wiring problem. What engine do you have in what year car?
It is on the driver side head of the engine.
if you are refering to the sensor for the fuel gauge, it is in the fuel tank with the fuel pump.
the oil pressure sensor, for a dash with idiot lights (no gauge), is located on the top of the engine at the back behind the distributor virtically screwed in. The oil guage sensor, for a dash with an oil gauge, is located above the oil filter on the drivers side of the engine screwed in horizontally.
My Corsica's temp gauge went out, and to replace the OEM gauge would have required buying the whole instrument panel. We bought an aftermarket gauge and mounted it under the dash. It cost much less, and hey, it's not a show car so I don't mind that it's not 'perfect'. Just find the temp sensor on the engine (driver's side of car on back side of engine), and either use the sensor wire there or replace with one that works with your gauge.
