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.

It's on the intake manifold. It is a small brass gadget with a plug that connects to the fans and guages the engine temperature.It can be unscrewed with a socket and wrench. Be careful not to break anything.

The coolant temperature sensor is located on the intake manifold as mrgreenz indicated. The sensor located between the coil packs on the top of the engine is the cylinder head temperature sensor. I found this out when replacing the valve cover gasket on a 2002 Lincoln LS with the V6 and had to replace the sensor between the coil packs...

I have a 2001 Lincoln Ls 3.9 V8 motor and I'm trying to locate the temperature sensor. But i am having trouble to locate that part. Can someone help

This engine does not have nor use a engine coolant temp sensor. It uses a cylinder head temp sensor. It is mounted under the intake which has to be removed to gain access to the sensor. It is on the drivers side head next to the intake ports

Where to find the coolant temp.sensor on a 2004 Lincoln l.s. 6 cylnder?and how to change it?

There are two coolant temp senders, one has one wire and goes to dash cluster, one has twoo wires and speaks to the ECU. Both are located in the intake manifold near the thermostat housing on most engines, and parts stores have parts locator charts which should help. Buy your part and ask to see the location chart. Unscrew the old one and quickly install the new one to prevent loss of much coolant. Top up with new coolant and done.

I have a 2001 lincoln ls and it shows p1299 code , but when you start it ,it shakes and makes a noise like the engine is tearing up . The p1299 code is for the dual coolant control valve. What could be...

PO 1299 --Cylinder Head Over Temperature Protection Active

You have 2 Fail Safes

1 for Temp
1 for ETC (electronic throttle control)

Check out the daul coolant valve, you seem to
be aware of, for some reason

The 2000 thru 2002 & later 03 to 06 LS are different,
as are the V6 & V8's in several design features

My 2001 lincoln ls 3.9l is overheating when i turn the a/c on and i trying to find out where the cootant temp sensor or do i need to replace someelse.

make a visual inspection, you may check the fans for correct operation, if fans ok, check the discharge pressure, it is not more than 250 psi and suction pressure is 25-35 psi, if all this is accurate clean the system, replace condenser if necessary, replace expansion valve and filter drier, the engine coolant temperature location is @ the cylinder head beside injector #3 (engine temperature sensor)
