The sensor you're looking for is called the ECT Sensor(Engine Coolant Temperature). It is located on the left hand side of the engine(left hand is closest to bumper/right hand is closest to firewall) closer to the back(driver side of vehicle).

Automobiles: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 4-cylinder 2.0L MFI DOHC
The "left" side of the engine is the driver's side.
The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor (a device which changes resistance or voltage as temperature changes). The sensor detects the temperature of engine coolant and provides a corresponding signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module - aka "the car's computer").
The ECT sensor is mounted in the following locations (small Ford engines):
1.8L engines: in the cylinder head
1.9L engines: threaded into the heater hose inlet pipe
2.0L engines: at the left rear of the engine
2.0L Zetec Engine
(1) Partially drain the engine cooling system using a clean container. If coolant is in good condition, retain for reuse.
(2) Disconnect the battery ground cable.
(3) Disconnect the electrical wiring connector from the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
(4) Remove the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.
Fig. 1 Escort ZX2 ECT sensor - The retaining clip is removed (at the solid arrow). Withdraw ECT sensor by gently wiggling/pulling in the direction of the dashed arrow.
Coat the ECT sensor O-ring with clean coolant prior to installation.
(1) Replace the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.
(2) Connect the electrical wiring connector from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.
(3) Connect the battery ground cable.
(4) Refill the engine cooling system. An inexpensive plastic "Radiator Funnel" will help with this task.
