    Checked all possible places near the thermostat,all around it,under the alternator all paces that were suggested on forums even stopped at Ford dealer got diagram for the sensor placing and non of the places or sensors are the same kind like the one i bought .The one under alternator is with one wire,i find one like it on the water pump but not the same plug in.Don't know if sensor is not right or else.On internet when u put all info for the car it gives me the same sensor i got and that's the one Auto Zone gave me.Please give suggestions ONLY if u are sure about it.Car is 2.0 dual cam 16 valve Ztech.---2001

The sensor will most probably be mounted some where on the intake manifold near the thermastat. Many cars have two sensors, one for the computer and one for the guage. the one for the guage more than likely will have one or two wires, it should simply unscrew like a sparkplug. If you change it expect to lose some coolant.

Location of temperature sensor that operates the temperature gauge

Follow the upper rad hose to the thermostat housing. It will be there. There are two, one is the ECT (engine coolant temperature SENSOR) and the other is the temperature SENDING UNIT (input for temp. gauge ONLY). f83e91b9-4b48-476a-8c50-10735b376bf1.png

Where is the location of the su2142 speed sencor on a ford focus 2001

Dear Madam or Sir,

Is this the vehicle speed sensor? This one is mounted on top of the gearbox.

If the SU2142 is the engine Speed sensor, it is mounted on the cylinder head near the camshaft sprockets.

I had a 2001 and the transmission was not shifting correctly that was diagnosed as a speed sensor issue.

There is a speed sensor on the transmission, near the rear.

2001 ford focus o2 sensor

there are two sensors on your car, one is before your catylitic converter and just after the exhaust runners come together, it may be hidden due to your heat shield, the second one will be after the catylitic converter and will easiest to see from under the car, if you look onto the site for autozone you can see a picture of one and if they have the guide they sometimes have pictures too
