on the 4.6L it is located passenger side of where the radiator hose enters the engine, mine has a wire with a black cap on it
The physical position of the sensor is behind the water pump pulley, where you can see the the cable connection on the cover of the crankshaft and camshaft gears.
most are near the water outlet housing.
Not sure about the 1997 but on the 1994 the fan coolant sensor is located on the water inlet pipe behind the water pump. You should see an electrical connector. There is also an engine cooling temperature switch (ECT) mounted on the thermostat housing, also with an electrical connector.
under the water pump.
Left rear of cylinder head (single wire sensor)
right below your thermostat housing
Front top of the intake manifold.
Depends on the model and year. Some have a thermo switch on the radiator. Check for a wired plug on the radiator. Some fans are controlled by the ecu using data from the coolant temp sensor.
just changed it today, located right side of engine, under to the right of the engine cover , has wires coming off it looking like a bolt,, water will come out when you loosen the bolt.
Which temperature switch, there are 2. One is the DME temp switch and that one is close to the water inlet at the top of the motor and usually has a blue connector. The dash sensor is located in the middle of the block under the intake manifold and is a single wire sensor.
under the water pump.
On the side of the water pump housing
The temp sensor on the sc300 is at the front of the engine. It is mounted near the water pump and timing chain housing.
One can easily be installed. Locate the wire that runs to the water temp sensor. Splice this wire to a switch and then off to a ground. When you flip the switch it will ground the wire and make the fan come on. Do not get confused with the oil temp sensor. It controls the HOT oil light, not the fan.
its under the water pump
There are 3 temp sensors. 1 is under the spark plugs for the head cylinder temp. Another is on the thermostat housing for water temperature. And the 3rd is just beside the water temperature sensor and it's not a sensor it is a temperature switch.
Above the water pump below the super charger where the distributor would be if it had one. Its a little hard to see at first but can be seen from the front of the motor.
the sensor for the gauge should be by the thermostat housing,the sensor for the ecm should be on the right rear of engine above exhaust manifold screwed into head
On my 2000 International with a Detroit series 60 engine the water temperature sensor is on the back of the engine, passenger side in the cylinder head. Gears
Water level sensor
There are two. One by the water pump, and one down by the pully. You have to have a puuler to get tho that one.
The water temperature sensor on a 2002 Kia Sedona is located on top of the engine, near the upper radiator hose. It relays the temperature to the vehicle's computer and triggers the cooling fan to come on.
Remove from vehicle. Place in a jar of water and heat on the stove with thermometer in the water. Connect a battery and lamp to the terminals.The sensor acts as a switch. See what temperature the lamp lights and compare to spec. If you have an ohmmeter connect it across sensor and note resistance. It should drop dramatically at set temperature.
Depends entirely on the make an model. Sensors may even move between model years. Generally, the sensor will be on the block, and will sense water temps before they head to the thermostat.
The coolant temperature switch and the cooling fan relay (same thing) is usually located in the water outlet housing. It will be the bigger sensor, the smaller is the temperature gauge sensor.
