Best Answer

The sensor is located underneath the coolant recovery tank. On a 1999 Cavalier, there could be some sludge built up underneath the tank. Unfortunately the sensor alone cannot be replaced, the entire tank and sensor comes as one piece and must be replaced.

tap on the side of your fill/overflow tank where the sensor is located sometimes they get stuck
