It is located in the thermostat housing on the left side of the motor under the thermostat Well, actually I believe that located in the thermostat housing on the left side of the motor under the thermostat, that component is actually called a "coolant temperature sensor". On the 3.1 Litre V6 engine the "coolant temperatiure sending unit" is on the Left-hand side of the rear cylinder bank, above the exhaust manifold and below the valve cover Although the question asked did not mention as to why you think you need to replace this. I will answer a frequent misconception about these units and add yet another. Since many people are pointed to these items in hopes of repairing the LOW COOLANT Indicator Light on their instrument panel. Now ff this is the problem your trying to resolve, these other components are probably not what your looking for. since one controls the COLD/HOT guage on your panel and the other causes your fan to kick on and off. Allow me to introduce the proper part for that problem. This is only a ($12.00) Twelve dollar part which the parts stores and repair shops wont inform you of, until after you've allowed them to overhaul your engine or you've already purchased these other sensors, and sending units which ranged from 25 to 85 dollars on average... NAPA Auto Parts sells a component and the part number is FLS609. It is a unqiue little sensor with two prongs at one end. This unit simply pops into the external housing area on the lower pocket on the outside of the Coolant Resovior Tank. It has a quick release plug and may look tricky to get out unless you remove the tank entirely. But there really is no need to remove the tank. After disconnecting the negative battery cable, remove the bolt on the upper side of resovoir tank, pull the tank back and up carefully until you can access the unit on the underside. Simply unplug the bad unit, insert the new sensor and then plug it in. re-connect your battery cable and turn on your car. Your motor will made a few wierd noises, clicks and whirrrs, and will begin to idle high for a moment and then resume to be normal. Your LOW COOLANT incator light on the instrument panel will no longer be lit up. Good Job, Well Done.
