Question about Cars & Trucks
My temperature gage goes crazy and i do not have heat in my car but my car doesnt act like its over heating. and was wondering where does my temperature sensor go?
On the top of your intake right next to your goose neck that comes from ya raditor. Just fallow the raditor hose from the raditor to your engine and you will find ya goose neck. Look to the right of it and you will see where it screws into your intake. It should have one conection to it.

if the car is overheating the thermostat is stuck closed if the car is not overheating the heater control valve may need to be replaced

I just got done replacing the O2 sensors in my 99 Cougar due to throwing a P0135 malfunction code. There's 3. Facing the engine there's one in the front coming off of the front header, which is easy to get to. Another more tricky one if between the engine and the fire wall on the rear header pipe. The third is under the vehicle behind the transmission pan on top of the exhaust. In order to replace the O2 sensor near the fire wall you will need to remove the 4 retaining bolts for the ECM module and move it out of the way. Additionally you will need to remove the 2 retaining nuts for a wiring harness that is seated below the ECM module. Pay close attention to the connectors because the front and under vehicle O2 sensors have round connectors the one near the firewall has a squared connector. I was able to replace all 3 by myself in approximately 35 minutes. If your throwing a O2 heater malfunction code it is most likely going to be the sensor near the firewall. make sure that you know someone with a code reader so the code can be cleared. If you're do for an emmissions inspection be sure to put at least 40 miles on the new O2 sensor with different types of driving (e.g. highway, coasting, decellerated turns and rapid acceleration). Gotta love project cars for your kids!!
