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.

Vehicle make, model & engine size needed first.


The coolant temperature sensor can be found on the front of the engine, near the thermostat. Remove the coolant temperature sensor retaining nut, to replace it.


Coolant is used to keep an engine in a vehicle at a temperature safe for operation. If no coolant is in the reservoir, an engine will not start.


engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty.


The engine coolant temperature sensor is usually on the front of the engine. The coolant temperature sensor will be in the vicinity of the thermostat housing.


After coolant is added run vehicle to normal operating temperature and re-check coolant level


the average coolant temp depending on what thermostat is in the vehicle shold be between 175 degrees and 190 degrees


Modern vehicles are equipped with multiple temperature sensors. They are used to advise the engine computer and driver on the condition of the vehicle systems. Common automotive temperature sensors include coolant, transmission, ambient air temperature and engine oil.


You will have to replace the refrigerant, but not the engine coolant.


Check to verify the coolant level is full. If the vehicle has a engine coolant temperature guage, does it reach and maintain a normal temperature duing vehicle operation? If not have a mechanic check for a leaking head gasket.


No, the thermostat controls the temperature of the engine coolant. As long as the coolant temperature is below the thermostat set-point, the thermostat remains closed. Once the temperature arrives at the set-point, the thermostat starts to open, sending heated coolant through the radiator. The radiator then cools the heated engine coolant and the water pump forces the coolant back through the engine. The heater control valve allows more or less of the engine coolant through the heater core. Since the coolant should be very near the set-point temperature of the thermostat, you should be getting hot water through the heater core to warm the inside of the vehicle. The engine coolant is there to keep the engine from melting down or from breaking metal parts and burnng off the oil. It just happens that the heated coolant is useful to warm the inside of the vehicle.


wher is the engine temperature coolant sensor BUICK 2001


Diagnostic error code number 118 with high temperature input on a Audi A4 means that the engine coolant is not running at the right temperature. When the engine is cold, it should be warm, and when the engine is warm, the temperature should be cooler in the engine. The problem could be with the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor or the vehicle could be low on fluid.


Not functioning properly If stuck closed engine will overheat--no coolant flow through engine. If stuck open--vehicle will not warm up to normal operating temperature - no heat in passenger compartment--poor fuel economy


NOTE: this answer is describing the location of the engine coolant temperature sensor - NOT the coolant sensor in the reservoir that warns when the level gets too low.The coolant temperature sensor is located directly adjacent to the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is what the upper radiator hose (toward the right side of the engine compartment) connects to. You do not have to replace the reservoir to replace this part, but leaky coolant reservoirs are a common problem on this model.


Oil in coolant? Coolant in oil? Excessive white smoke from tailpipe when vehicle is at normal operating temperature? Engine miss or skip?


The engine coolant temperature sensor and coolant temperature gauge sender are located on the passenger's side of the engine, under the intake manifold.


To monitor the temperature of the engine coolant.


There is no such thing as a: temperature switch, on your Ford focus, the coolant temperature sensor is located on the front of the engine.

The temperature sensor for the coolant system is located on the front of the engine. The exact location of the coolant temperature sensor is dependent upon the year of the engine.


Replace the engine coolant temperature sensor. Your car has two, replace the one with the 2 wire connector

If It is the temp. sensor and not the thermosat I believe it is the bottom of the coolant tank. I thimk you have to buy a new tank.
