"Neither. Most likely for knock sensor. check other side in same location. There will most likely be a round sensor threaded into the block. no oil or coolant present.

Where is the temperature sensor on a 306?

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.

How do you replace the coolant level sensor on a 1995 thunder bird?

PATH: Engine Cooling > Coolant Temperature Sensor > Removal & Installation Removal & Installation Drain the engine cooling system slightly. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Detach the wiring connection from the sensor. Remove the coolant temperature sensor from the intake manifold. Clean the sensor area of any debris. To install: Install a new sensor into the intake manifold. Tighten the 6-14 ft. lbs. (8-19 Nm). Attach the sensor wiring to the unit. Connect the negative battery cable. Fill the engine cooling system with a 50/50 coolant water mixture. Start the engine and top off the cooling system.

Why would the low coolant light come onon a 2000 Sable?

In the engine compartment, on the left side of the engine is the coolant reservoir. In the coolant reservoir, there is a sensor at the bottom of the reservoir. This sensor is supposed to let you know when you are low on coolant, but can also become defective, and give you a "false-positive" reading. The only way to know this is to check your coolant when the low coolant light comes on. If there is a significant decrease in coolant, you may have a problem in the cooling system , but if you don't, chances are the sensor isn't working. If the sensor is the problem, you can unplug it from the coolant reservoir, by unscrewing the two screws holding the reservoir to the car's inside firewall, then tilting the back of the coolant reservoir forward until you see wiring coming from the bottom of the reservoir, which is the plug for the low coolant sensor. Unplug the sensor, and the low coolant light won't come on anymore. However, you will now have to make sure you check your coolant level in the reservoir on a regular basis.

This could be an indication that the engine coolant level is low. Check the fluid level when the engine is cool or take it in to get serviced. Low coolant allows air into the system and the sensor will read that the engine is hot.

Does a cylinder head temperature sensor in a ford focus control the fan or does the coolant temperature sensor control it?

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1299 indicates an engine overheat condition was detected by the cylinder head temperature (CHT) sensor. An FMEM Strategy called Failsafe Cooling was activated to cool the engine. (Refer to Section 1A, «Electronic Engine Control (EC) System», for more information on Failsafe Cooling Strategy and the cylinder head temperature sensor.) Possible causes: -- Engine cooling system concerns. -- Base engine concerns. -- Low engine coolant level or loss of coolant.

Location of 1991 camaro CTS coolant temperature sensor please?

Tech research answer I don't undertand location of: Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) - Determines the temperature of engine coolant via direct insertion with a thermistor, usually threaded into a coolant passage in the intake manifold. This data is then used to determine the point at which the engine is warmed and a leaner mixture may be used by the fuel/air system in an open loop fashion prior to oxygen sensor warm-up. Coolant temperature is also used during engine cranking to set the starting AF ratio to a value between 2:1 and 12:1
