IT IS LOCATED ON THE INTAKE Because ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor procedures vary depending upon their location, first locate the part. You may need to partially drain the engine coolant to prevent coolant spillage. * Disconnect the negative battery cable. * Unplug the ECT. * Then, unscrew it. * Reverse the removal procedures to install the new part. * Connect the negative battery cable to the battery.

Could be low coolant level, faulty thermostat, or faulty temperature sensor. Check coolant first.

The temperature gauge should be connected to the transmission temperature sensor. The transmission temperature sensor is located on the right-hand side of the transmission.

Code PO125: Insufficient coolant temp for closed loop fuel control. This means that the voltage from the temperature sensor is lower than expected, and is being ignored. The fuel management system stays at default settings similar to a cold start. The oxygen sensor is not being used to adjust the fuel mix and the fuel mix will likely be on the rich side. Also, depending on the system, the intake air pre-heater may stay on. Causes: 1. Coolant temperature too low, engine does not come up to temperature; Thermostat stuck open, or missing. 2. Temperature sensor failed. If your engine appears to be warming up ok, then it is likely the temperature sensor. Typically, coolant temperature sensors may fail within 4 to 5 years. Your engine may have 2 temperature sensors: one for the fan, and another for the fuel management system. Consult a repair manual.

The sensor can be checked for resistance with an ohm meter. The sensor can be checked while cold then hot for resistance change.

Look just in front of the radiator on the driver's side.

The thread on cap on your engine coolant reservoir is your pressure cap / radiator cap

Put a new egr electrical position sensor on and a new coolant temp sensor and fill the radiator with coolant. This will fix all but the check engine lite.

If you cant find your 2000 F150 4.2 V6 Temp. gauge sensor on the intake manifold, try looking underneath the engine. Back of driver side cyl. head that's where I found mine sensor was broken off. Jumper this connection turn key to on position, if gauge goes replace sensor.
