Hey Brian==it is in the fromt of the intake manifold. Drain the rakiator then remove it and install the new one. GoodluckJoe
That would acually be the fan sensor. There is a coolant temperature sensor on the right hand end (looking from the front) of the engine. When it fails, the idle speed goes a bit goofy and the engine tends to ide fast. The gauge will also do some interesting things as well.
This is best done with a cold engine but can be done hot, just be very very careful and make sure the pressure is off the cooling system but once you have released it, put the cap back on tight.
The sensor has 2 wires, yellow and black, and is clipped onto the sensor with a snap connector. Be careful not to pull the wires but to pull the sensor off with the plastic holder. Once the wires are free, then you can remove the old sensor.
Make sure to prepare the new one by wrappingtape on the threads to seal it. That works best. Remove the old sensor and quickly put the new one into place and finger tighten. Once it snuggs up, then finish tightening it into place.
Make sure you replace the wires otherwise it will at least set an error code or 2.

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.
The sensor is threaded into the coolant passage in the back of the cylinder head.

Engine coolant temperature switch/sensor
Faulty coolant temp sensor can cause the vehicle to run poorly, if run at all. If you are leaning toward replacing the sensor you will be happy to know the sensor is relatively cheap, around $12, and simple to replace. Please visit my Bio for a link to my saturn help site for image of where the coolant temperature sensor is located.

Start by replacing the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor
Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor.
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.
The coolant temperature sensor, on a 2005 Ford escape, can be changed by loosening the sensor retaining nut. Once the knot is removed the sensor will pull out.
probably just replace the coolant sensor
The guage on the dash uses the ONE wire sensor... This is located in the block near the drivers side. Eric First check to see if you have coolant in the radiator. If there is no coolant you will not get any reading from the temperature sensor. If there is coolant then change the temperature sensor.
Where is the coolant temperature sensor on a 2001 ford focus?" Where is the coolant temperature sensor on a 2001 ford focus Where is the coolant temperature sensor on a 2002 ford focus
It means it's time to replace the coolant temperature sensor.
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.
It is located under the coolant reservoir. You can't just replace the sensor. The whole coolant reservoir must be replace. It's a simply 10 minute job.
P0117 will set if the engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT) reads over 248F when the engine has been running for 10 seconds. replace your coolant temp sensor. the sensor is located in the drivers side of the cylinder head, just below the valve cover line, under the coolant hose.
how do you replace coolant temp sensor on a rodeo
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.
Coolant temperature sensor is located on the front of the engine. The coolant temperature sensor is a few inches above the thermostat housing.
