On the SL2 (DOHC), there are two coolant temperature sensors located on the left-hand side of the cylinder head, near the upper coolant hose.

Your SL1 (SOHC) might be different.

On the SL2, the upper sensor with ONE WIRE controls the temperature gauge in the dash. The lower sensor with TWO wires provides input to the computer. They are not interchangeable. Yours may be similar.

Here is a tip you will need a 4mm deepwell socket to get it out.

Actually, you will need a 14mm deep socket or box wrench. The new sensor may require a 13mm socket or wrench, depending on the manufacturer.

Where is the coolant sensor on a 2001 Mercury Sable and is it possible to replace it without replacing the entire coolant reservoir?

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.
