I have a 1998 Pontiac Grand AM GT that coolant sensor went bad. So how do you change it with out breaking the coolant
this is normal,because the coolant temp sensor is supposed to be in direct contact with the cooling fluid in order to read its temperature
An engine coolant temperature sensor will usually need to be replaced when it is drawing too much or too little voltage. The sensor may also have a bad ground connection.
See a dealer
the coolant sensor is in the radiator on the passanger side the oxygen sensor is in the exhaust system on the manifold and the pipes and sometimes both
Likely a faulty coolant temperature sensor. Change the sensor.
The low coolant level sensor is located in the top of the coolant reservoir o n the drivers side behind the battery www.lextechautomotivellc.com
remove the two 10mm nuts. dissconnnect the coolant level sensor plug and remove coolant hose's
Drain off about 2 qts of coolant from radiator petcock after engine has cooled. Unplug wire harness from sensor. Remove sensor with a counterclockwise motion. Coat new sensor with a thread sealant and install until snug. Reconnect harness and refill coolant reservoir. Recheck coolant level after useage.
Locate and remove old coolant temperature sensor (disconnect electric connector and you should be able to loosen sensor with an open end wrench; if it's too tight, use a flared end wrench to break it loose). Catch coolant that spills out after sensor is removed, properly dispose of old coolant. Install new sensor in reverse order. Top off coolant. Clear trouble code & test drive vehicle to ensure vehicle performs to spec.
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.

Bad coolant sensor or faulty wiring to the sensor.

No, the electric cooling fans turn on and off by a signal from the coolant temp sensor. The coolant level sensor only illuminates the low coolant light when you are low on coolant.
Yes there is a coolant sensor in the Renault megane.
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.
coolant temp sensor,does just what it says,it relays your coolant temp to gauges!
The computer is not seeing a voltage drop across the coolant sensor. You could have a bad sensor, broken wiring, or a bad computer.
did it change for the better or worse? if it changed for the better it could of been bad.
The 2004 Chevrolet Malibu coolant sensor float is located in the radiator. The coolant sensor float replace the level of coolant to the instrument panel.
The coolant temperature sensor is in the top radiator hose on a Rover 200. The coolant temperature sensor is a type of thermostat.
It's right on top of the engine, next to the thermostat housing. Just disconnect the wire, turn out the sensor and replace it with a new one. If you need to add coolant, add the coolant after you change the sensor. Also, you should be ready with the new sensor as soon as you take the old one out, coolant will most certainly start to flow from the opening.
