sould be on the manifold
The coolant sensor moniters the coolant temperature. A faulty thermostat could cause the engine to run cool.
The 1992 Ford F2 50 pickup truck 5.8 liter engine coolant temperature sensor can be found on the top of the engine. The coolant temperature sensor will be near the intake manifold.
In front of the intake manifold on the coolant tube
on the front of the intake on left side when standing in front of truck.
Could be the coolant temperature sensor.
Check your coolant level. If its too low the sensor won't read the temperature of your coolant.
coolant temperature sensor is the right of the coolant outlet line on the top of the engine when looking at while standing in front of the truck. it has a black two prong clip attached to the sensor. the oil temp switch is to the left of the coolant outlet line. it has a single black wire coming off of it.
It is on the right rear side of the drivers side head. BESIDE the BACK spark plug.
The coolant temp sensor for the gauge is located near the front passenger side of the engine near the thermostat. It will be pointing slightly down and to the front of the truck. Will have a single yellow wire attached. The coolant temperature sensor for the ECU is bolted into the intake manifold in front of the carb. It will have a green 2 pin molded body. A 3rd sensor is located in the bottom of the radiator, this turns on the Carburetor PTC heater when the coolant temperature is below 60 deg F. Kyrasis6 Owner of Mazdatruckin.com
There are two on a 1994 Ram, one on each side of the thermostat housing. The one with one wire is for the temp gauge. The sensor with two wires is for the computer.
Engine coolant Temperature ( ECT ) sensor does not meet minimum thermostat regulating temperature. Need to replace ECT sensor. Make sure engine is COLD before changing. The sensor is on the right head back beside the last spark plug.
The coolant temp sensor on a 2002 Silverado with the 6.0 engine is located on the drivers side cylinder head close to the front of the cylinder head.
that was the first year of the new body style and there was alot of new parts, what motor is in this truck?, if its the 5.4 then its the coolant temperature sensor, ur truck may not actually be over heating but it is reading it wrong, start with that its a easy fix
Answerlooking at the front of the truck, the sensor will be in the back by the fire wall, on your right either on the top of the head, or the side, or the side of the block. 1994 is on top. hope this helpsTry www.genosgarage.com
the sensor on 96 V10 motor is in front on top behind air con
Sounds like a loose connection at the coolant temperature sender. Or, the truck is low on coolant and air bubbles are passing by the sensor. This, along with a gurgling heater core, is a classic symptom of coolant that is too low before the truck overheats. Paying attention to these clues allowed me to fill up a friend's truck with coolant as it was almost a gallon low, and he didn't even know it was leaking (Dexcool). If you are losing coolant, you may have an intake leak. It is a common problem around 65 to 80 thousand miles. I would have this checked, you most likely won't see a leak, unless you look from below by the back of the intake. It ususally drips out there.
next to the thermostat housing.
A bad sensor gives an inaccurate reading of the temperature of the critical antifreeze/coolant in an auto/truck engine. The sensor sends a message to the gauge and may "show" no reading or it may show a "Pegged hot reading". If the gauge doesn't show any change from the time you start the engine through the first 5 minutes of operation it is likely bad. there may or may not be overheating happening, most engines run fine without a functioning sensor, but you just won't know if you are operating in the too hot range. Operating an engine "too hot" for even short periods will damage it quickly.
Passenger side, side of cylinder head next to sparkplug, single wire sensor, needs offset 13/16 wrench to remove it.
