There are 2 on the engine, there is one next to the thermostat housing that sends a signal to the engine computer that takes a 1 inch wrench and there is another one that sends the signal to the Dashboard gauge and is located on the rear of the engine on the passenger side of the vehicle and you need to take off the cabin engine housing to get to this, this takes a 11/16 wrench and has a push on plug, be sure to de-pressurize the system prior to taking off these units, a ground will send the gauge to the hot side and an open switch will keep it on the cool side, so test the wire to be sure the gauge works first.

That is the temperature sending unit for the engine coolant and it should be in the drivers side head between the first 2 spark plugs.

We need to know which sending unit you speak of. There are several on that vehicle such as temperature sending unit, oil pressure sending unit and fuel gauge sending unit.

I had a similar problem with mine.... temperature gauge would shoot up after 10 minutes of driving and all the coolant would be gone... started watching the tail after replacing the coolant and saw white smoke... found out later it was a crack in the cylinder and it was burning coolant... this may not be your problem, but it mite help...

There are actually two water temperature sending unit on a 1994 S10 Chevy. Please locate the unit close to the thermostat housing, and not the one between spark plugs. The single wire water temperature sending unit should then be attached to the temperature gauge. The two wire unit, the one between spark plugs, would be connected to the engine control module.

On a 2.5L 1994 YJ, we found the temp sending unit in a tapping at the rear of the cylinder head, in the lower corner toward the exhaust side. The replacement head was not tapped at that location, and we didn't discover that fact until after the head was installed. Does anyone know of an alternate location?

"Inside the overflow tank. you get to buy a whole new tank." The switch inside the overflow tank is the coolant level switch. The engine coolant temperature sensor is located on the driver side of the engine near the rear of the engine compartment. by theramonast

That is the coolant sensor. Not the one for the temperature gauge in the dash.

on the drivers side of the engine. right above the spark plugs. it has a thin wire sticking out of it. BE READY coolant will pour out as soon as you remove it.
