SOURCE: Check engine light was on,

No code will tell you about coolant levels
or thermostat
In fact, codes do not tell you anything is wrong

They direct you to one of the vehicles systems,
that has a sensor out of range.

Then you have to component test,to find out
why the code was set

What code is there now?
Who is diagnosing the vehicle?

I think you missed the issue and changed the etc sensor

SOURCE: My 89 mustang won't run with the maf sensor

you need to replace the mass airflow sensor it is defective for that year should be cheap but most likely will need to be ordered


please leave 4 thumbs if it helps

There are 2 wires that go to the thermostat one controls hte temp gauge and the other is cut and i don't know where it goes.


what year, 89-200x?
what engine options.?
if say a 89-98
there are 3 temp sensors.
1 for AC
1 for gauge. 1wire.
2 for ECT engine EFI ECU usage.


which sensor.
i cant answer due to year, issues. not stated
but its here.
http://www.fixkick.com/find-parts.html
now my wild guess. ill roll the dice and land 1995 16v. head.
all 3 (AC is plugged,)

Location of engine coolant temperature sensor


Automobiles: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 4-cylinder 2.0L MFI DOHC

NOTE
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.


12_5_2011_5_38_05_pm.jpg

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.

To install:

NOTE
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.

The fan DOES NOT turn on....at all. Plus, my temp. gauge doesnt move off of the cold...not one bit. Also it is using, or loosing radiator fluid, yet it isnt leaking out onto the ground?


Hi, I recommend you check the coolant temperature sensor and replace if necessary. First verify the wire is connected properly to the sensor, then test the sensor itself as indicated below. If the sensor tests good, the problem is likely the wire from the sensor to the gauge or computer. A broken wire will indicate the engine is cold.
To see where the coolant is going, you might want to pull the spark plugs to see if they are getting coolant on them. If any are wet, you have a blown head gasket.

OPERATIONThe 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.
The ECT sensor is mounted in the following locations:


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
TESTINGSee Figures 1, 2 and 3
  1. Disengage the temperature sensor electrical connection.
  2. Connect jumper wires from the sensor connector to the wiring harness. This permits the engine to operate normally while you check the sensor.
  3. Connect a Digital Volt Ohmmeter (DVOM) between the sensor terminals.
  4. Measure the voltage or resistance with the engine off and cool and with the engine running and warmed up. Compare the temperature versus voltage or resistance values obtained with the chart(s).
  5. Replace the sensor if the readings are incorrect.

Fig. Fig. 3: Connect a Digital Volt Ohmmeter (DVOM) between the sensor terminals and measure the resistance or voltage
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION1.9L and 2.0L Engines
See Figure 5

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system until the level is below the ECT sensor.
  3. On 1.9L engines, remove the engine air intake duct.
  4. Locate the ECT sensor and unplug its electrical connection.
  5. Using a suitable size wrench, remove the ECT sensor.

It may be necessary to brace the heater hose inlet pipe with your free hand while removing or installing the ECT sensor.

To install:

  1. Coat the threads of the new sensor with pipe sealant that contains Teflon(®).
  2. Install the new sensor and tighten it to 18-22 ft. lbs. (25-29 Nm) on 1.9L engines, or to 89-123 inch lbs. (10-14 Nm) on 2.0L engines.
  3. Attach the sensor electrical connection.
  4. On 1.9L engines, install the air intake duct.
  5. Fill the cooling system.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

Where is the coolent control sensor located on a 2002 LT trailblazer


2.2L & 2.4L Engines
  1. Turn OFF the ignition.
  2. Drain the coolant system to below the ECT sensor.
  3. Disconnect the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor electrical connector.
  4. Carefully remove the ECT sensor.
  5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Coat sensor threads with thread lock sealant and tighten sensor to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
It looks like this:

Typically screwed into a coolant passage in the intake manifold or the thermostat housing.

Where is the ect sensor on a 2002 3.8l mustang?


The Engine Coolant Temperature sensor?

Just below the round cap in front of the intake manifold. It's screwed in below the cap at an angle, and the harness is attached at the back of it.

Looks like this,
http://www.fordfuelinjection.com/?p=28

Has two wires that go to it. Remember to use high temp Red, on the threads of the ECT when you reinstall the new one. Also check the condition of the insulation of those two wires.

(A Ford dealership stated, that it's located at the back of one of the cylinder heads. I'l go with my Mitchells Shop Manual)

It is a 2001 Mustang GT 4.6 litre Manual transmission. I need the locations of my Power Train Control Module and my Engine Coolant Temp Sensor.


ECT is located to the right(passenger side) of the alternator in the intake manifold.
PCM is located behind the right(passenger) kick panel under the corner of the dash.

Where is the second temp sensor on the 2000 ford mustang 4.6?


On  4.6 engines the ECT is located at the left side of the alternator outside the engine block. Thsi si the one that the computer reads.
