On the 98 2.4 the coolant level switch is located on the bottom side of the coolant recovery tank. The switch contains a reed switch and a magnetic float. When the coolant level is normal, the float rests away from the reed switch, causing the switch to be open. When the coolant level decreases in the coolant recovery tank below a specified level, the float rests on the reed switch and the switch closes, illuminating the LOW COOLANT light.

the coolant temp sensor is at the rear of the engine and is a "bad word" to get to. the 3 relays are at the bottom,under the fans. if you remove the driver side fan out of the way( 2 10mm bolts holding the fan) you should have good access to them. they do have locks on them and may be tricky to unplug. there is a 7/16 nut holding the relay plate down. remove and it should be easy to remove them.

SOURCE: need to locate and replace coolant sensor

If you are refering to the coolant level sensor (causes low coolant light to turn on), it is located on the radiator near the battery on the passnger side. It is on the radiator tank, just below the radiator cap and the upper connection for the transmission line. Heres a picture of the sensor on my 2002 Impala when I removed the radiator (it's the square thing in the center of the picture):

It is on the Driver side of engine in between the COP's (Coil on plugs) simply unplug the wire use a 19 or 3/4 deep well socket and unscrew it and put it new one... The whole process should only take 10-15 minutes.

Two cooling fans controlled by three relay's . If only one fan is working ,that could be a problem .
Coolant Level Sensor Description
The coolant level sensor monitors the coolant level in the cooling system and indicates if the coolant is low. This sensor is located at the base of the radiator surge tank and is not serviceable.
CHECK COOLANT LEVEL (2)
The IPC receives a discrete input from the engine coolant level switch. The engine coolant level switch is normally closed. When the engine coolant is low, the engine coolant level switch opens. When the IPC receives an open signal from the engine coolant level switch, the IPC displays the message on the DIC.

if your rad coolant fan is not working check the fan itself as this is a common problem on these cars. disconnect the plug from the fan motor and run jumper wires directly from battery to the fan motor terminals. if the fan doesn`t run replace fan motor. if it does run the check fuses then fan relay. the relay is in the relay box, the coolant sensor for the fan motor is in the head that goes into a coolant passage that has a 2 wire connector.

Location of coolant sensor 2000 ford tarus station wagon 3.0 liter v-6


Not sure I follow you.
The engine temp sensor sends a signal to the engine computer and the computer decides when to activate the fan relays. So if you have power to the fans you would also have power to the high or low speed relay the temp sensor is probably working. There is a third relay for the ground circuit.

coolant temp sensor tells the computer how hot or cold the engine is so it can regulate the idle and fuel mixture, when it fails there usually is no cooling fan and you will have trouble starting the engine and keeping it running.

Cooling fan doesn't work, but it works when i connect it to the battery. is it the thermo sensor and where is it located at.


check all your wires from the fan first. Look for shorts. The thermo sensor will be in your coolant system. Sometimes its the same sensor as the one that sends a reading to your instrument panel. Sometimes its different.

Its just a relay or the computer or sensor, check a manual at an auto parts store, they can look it up. but to fix it quick, just run a new power and ground direct to the fan, so it runs when you turn the engine on, I drove My 90'Olds cutlass like that for years.

Radiator fan not working replaced relay,temp


You didn’t mention replacing the temperature sensor located on the block in the path of the ‘cooled’ coolant.
I can’t tell you any closer where to look for it since you didn’t specify which engine you have.
This device is a solid state item called a thermistor.
With the air temperature around 77 degrees F and a 'cold' engine, it should measure about 10,000 Ohms and hot, around 1,200 Ohms while disconnected from its mating connector.
With the ignition on, and the connector disconnected from the sensor, you should measure about 5 volts coming from the ECU.
If this has failed, the ECU is not getting the right info back from the sensor and doesn’t know if the fan is needed or not.
