coolant temp sensor is hidden. you must remove exhaust shield and manifold to access it. it is behind the exhaust manifold.

SOURCE: Where is the temperature sending unit on a 1999 VW

VW Passat & Audi A4 1990-2000

Motronic System
The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is mounted in the water outlet on the back side of the head. If you vehicle still has a original VW part it will be black in color with a four terminal connector. This device signals the engine management system with the current coolant temperature, the ECU takes this information and uses it to control other such circuits as the idle speed, knock control system, oxygen sensor circuit, exhaust gas recalculation, and fuel tank venting. It is also important to note that if at any time ECU does not receive a signal from the ECT it will substitute a value of 176°F (80°C).

VR6
The Engine Coolant Temperature sensor is mounted in the thermostat housing. The body of the sensor will be blue and the sensor will be blue and have two terminals if it is an original factory VW part.


The engine coolant temperature gauge uses a heat sensitive sending unit to transmit an electrical signal to the gauge. The sending unit is a heat sensitive variable resistor that is located on or near to the cylinder head and threads into an engine coolant passage. The sensors are a Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) type. As the temperature increases, the electrical resistance of the sensor decreases. As the coolant temperature changes, so does the resistance of the sensor. The gauge is calibrated within the operating range of the sensor and interprets the resistance value to display the coolant temperature.On models produced prior to 1994, the engine coolant gauge temperature sensor is a single wire terminal sensor.

Beginning with model year 1994, the engine coolant gauge and the Engine Control Module (ECM) temperature sensors were combined into one sensor with 4 terminals. The basic operation remains the same in that their resistance decreases as the coolant temperature increases, however the actual resistance values of the 2 sensor circuits are different. The electrical connector of the 4-wire terminal sensor (1 and 2) is keyed to prevent improper connection of the sensor's electrical circuit.

WARNING When trouble shooting electrical components, always consult a wiring diagram for the particular year, make and model to ensure proper test equipment connection and diagnosis. Failure to use suitable test equipment and testing methods could permanently damage the electrical component(s).

What is the sending unit and were is it located on my Chevy camaro 3.8 v6 1998


you will have several sending units.
1. Oil pressure sending unit, which according to peoples site that I have visited is right above the oil filter.
2.sending unit in gas tank going to gauges, which is in the gas tank.
3. temperature sending unit, which is located near the thermostat housing or near the end of the upper radiator hose.

ususally these units are located somewhere near the end of the upper rad hose, by the thermostat housing..

hope this helps

let me know.

Where is the temperature sending unit located on a 2000 chevy s10 2.2 four cylinder engine


The temperature sending unit is screwed into cylinder head. Careful you also have a coolant temperature sensor that threads into intake manifold. Temp sending unit is how your guage knows how hot your engine is. Coolant temp sensor is how your computer knows how hot or cold your engine is, so it can compensate fuel & air mixture.You can not put the wrong one in the wrong place, they will not fit. You change 1 for 1 reason & the other for another reason.

Where is the temperature sending unit located on a 1971 GMC 350 v8 engine?


The temperature sending unit should be located on the drivers side cylinder head between the number one and the number three spark plugs, that is if it is the original engine.

Temp gauge stuck


sending units can be difficult to diagnose, since they sit somewhere between the sensors themselves and the temperature gauges (they may even be part of the sensors themselves, making diagnosis even more difficult). How do you know if the problem lies in the gauge itself, the sensors or the sending unit? You can always check the sensors themselves---one of the most common problems with temperature sensors located near the engine is a disconnection caused by vibration, which dislodges the sensor. If the sensor is dislodged, you can fix this problem and the sending unit should operate well.

Temperature gauge does not register


Your temperature sending unit is either disconnected or has failed. Check both ends (sending unit and guage) to make sure connections are securely fastened. It is located on the drivers side lower intake manifold on the front. It will look like this...

Trying to find out where the temperature sensor is located or maybe its called a switch temperature sensor. I replaced the thermostat and I was told this need to be replaced too


You would only need to replace this if your temperature gauge is not working properly. Just because the thermostat was replaced does not mean the sensor must be too.

There were three different engines offered for that vehicle and there is a separate temp sending unit for the gauge than there is for the computer(PCM). The V6 4.0 SOHC ECT for the PCM and the sending unit for the gauge are both located side by side on top of the thermostat housing. The V6 4.0 EI engine ECT is located on the front of the engine, left of the throttle body, and the sending unit is located in the front of the engine, behind the alternator bracket. The V8 5.0 ECT is located in the front of the engine, below the middle of the ignition coils and the sending unit is in the same area, but toward the driver's side of the engine below the left ignition coil.

It will look similar to this...

My 1997 Escort temperature guage goes off the scale when I switch it on. Have filled coolant.


the temperature sending unit which only controls the gauge is bad it is located on the left of the cylinder head very close to the exhaust manifold, first check and makes sure that rhe wire is not grounding if the wire is ok replace the temperature sending unit
