You replaced the engine on a 1995 Saturn SC1 with one from a 1998 Saturn SC1 how do you hook up the temperature sensor since it is not in the same place?

I thought the temp sensor was located above the transmission on the right hand side of the engine just below the lip of the valve cover. I hope the plug is the same, if so, cut the wire and extend it. I know when I replaced mine on my 97 it came with a new sensor and plug with like 2 feet of extra wire. You may want to get a new one as they are pretty inexpensive.

The 95 saturns had two temp sensors and 96+ were OBDII (its smarter and did not need two signals) only requiring one sensor. One for the EGR one for just running. You may have to splice the two lines off of the one sensor.

There are two separate sensors that play here. the "coolant temperature sensor" and "coolant LEVEL sensor". I suggest confirming which of these was replaced, as it is very common for them to be confused. likely you will find the coolant sensor that was replaced was the one on the engine (temperature); The LEVEL sensor is mounted either in the coolant resivoir or in the radiator. Probably just need the proper sensor replaced.

The temperature sensor for the coolant system is located on the front of the engine. The exact location of the coolant temperature sensor is dependent upon the year of the engine.
