2006 Chevy Trail Blazer 4.2 liter. Where is the coolant temp sensor located?

Since its an 06, its located rear right side upper end of engine...if it was an 05 or older , its located right above the thermostat housing...I said the later because you will sometimes have the correct model year but the manufacture put in a previous model years engine depending on actual build date...

The actual Temp. Sensor on a 5.7 is located on drivers side and screws into the side of the engine. Should have a wire connected to it. Just below where the Valve cover mounts to the head. This sensor is the one that provides the information to the Temperature Gauge in the dash.

So you know, there is another Temp. Sensor (but this is actually a switch). It is located at the front Top of engine right around the Thermostat housing. This would have a 2 wire plug going to it.

Temp gauge does not work

there is a single wire connected to a temp sensor on the right side of the engine (pass side) just under the exhaust manifold. A common problem is the wire rests on manifold and burns or shorts out to manifold which results in loss of temp display. find wire, repair and replace on sensor. I found that crimping on a gator clip and attach it to sensor works just fine. another issue not discussed is the plug on the end of the wire gets loose and although it may be on the sensor its not making a good connection. thus why I use the gator clip to ensure connection. The temp sensor by the thermostat is only for the ECM and has no function with the gauges.

Temperter gauge not working

On the right side of engine on cylinder head there should be a single wire onto a small pole. Try removing that wire and see if your temp guage goes all the way up to hot. If it does, then the problem is with the sensor. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the wire and/or the guage itself. Replacing the sensor is quite easy. You will need a 7/8's deep socket to remove and re install, note you will lose a little coolant so make sure to top up with 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water.

How do you fix the temp gauge it stopped working ad is stuck above the H

Hello tj60576: My name is Roger I will help you. If the temp gauge is stuck? Locate the temp sensor on the motor.Disconnect the wire. After disconnecting the wire. Ground the plug end of the wire. You can do this with a extra piece of wire. Observe the temp gauge with the key on. The gauge should move to cold side of the gauge. If the gauge still reads hot or above then the problem is either in the dash or the gauge itself. You will find the sensor located on the cross over pipe front of the engine far right hand side of the tube.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rare the answer you received. This way I know the answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
