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.
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.
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.
Drain about 1 gallon of coolant from radiator Follow upper radiator hose to engine housing Remove housing Note how thermostat is instaled in housing Clean both ssurfaces Replace thermostat and gasket Re-fill coolant slowly to prevent an "airlock" Start engine and check for leaks Run engine to normal operating temperature with heater on Check coolant level
