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.

The drain should be at the bottom on the left side of the radiator. Use a 1/4" drive ratchet extension to turn it anticlockwise just a but then pull it outwards and turn it slightly more.
