The 95 Lumina with a 3.1 engine does not have a temperature sending unit. Instead, the dash temp gauge is controlled by the engine coolant temp sensor. This sensor is located on the driver's side, top of the engine.

The temperature sensor is located in the thermostat housing which is on the drivers side of engine, behind the throttle body near the top of the engine

"low coolant? sensor location, NOT "engine temperature" sensor location is of passenger side of radiator tank. remove headlamp assembly for a direct visual on sensor. it is a black plastic square on side of radiator lower than the upper radiator hose inlet. has a two wire connector

What type of coolant sensor? The below answer is for the coolant LEVEL sensor. The coolant TEMPERATURE sensor on my vehicle is located just next to the thermostat housing. On the front top center area of the engine just behind the radiator. Follow the coolant hoses if you have trouble. On my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee the sensor is located on the top of the plastic coolant reservoir tank. Look for a small (2-wire?) electrical connector.

Where do you find a knock sensor on 1999 Chevy lumina

The purge valve sensor on the 96 Chevy Lunina van is on the driver's side of the engine about half way back from the bumper. The low coolant sensor is to the right of the front part of the engine, next to the PCV valve.

engine coolant temp sensor volts too high.

User Avatar

well basically you need to fill your coolant system up I'm not familiar with Chevy's but refer to the car manual

User Avatar

you can't reset it, fill your coolant up full, both rad and overflow. the light will go out. if it is still on when everything is full, then your coolant sensor is broken or unplugged. if you light goes off then comes on again and your coolant is low, then you have a leak. if you have a 3400 engine in your lumina common leaks are intake gaskets, waterpumps, and head gaskets.

low coolant sensor location is on the right side of radiator tank ( passenger side of vehicle) looking at it after you open hood it is on your left side. easy way to view it is to remove right side headlamp assembly (passenger side, not drivers side) it is a black plastic square with a two wire connector. this is the"low coolant" lamp warning sensor, not the coolant temperature sensor, which sends signal to temp. gauge.

Remove brace to better access the coolant area. Unplug and remove the battery. Remove the electrical connector from the sensor. Have container beneath vehicle to catch any coolant. Remove the wire, or wires, that are holding the senor in place. Add antifreeze to the O rings and push the new sensor into place. Replace the battery and brace cover.

The knock sensor, in your 1997 Chevrolet Lumina, can be found on the front of the engine. The knock sensor is near the top of the engine.
