Need more info. I see from the location of your post that you have a 2002 Blazer. Do you mean a Trail Blazer? Chevy didn't make a Blazer in 2002. The ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor) is located on the driver's side, front of the engine. (on top) It is between the ECM (engine control module aka the engine computer) and the alternator. You will most likely need to remove the alternator and it's belt to obtain easy access to the sensor. If you need to remove the alternator for access, remember to disconnect the battery's negative terminal first. The sensor has a wiring harness with a connector mounted to the top of it. After you remove the electrical connector, the sensor will screw out using a deep socket and ratchet. You will loose some coolant (antifreeze) during the change, so make sure you have some DexCool antifreeze on hand.

SOURCE: Temp sensor needs to be replaced
this does not mean the sensor is defective, it most likely means the engine thermostat is stuck open and the engine is not running hot enough to satisfy the computers preset temp requirements for minimum eng operating temp.

heres a diagram to show you where the coolant temp sensor is located, its behind the alternator on the left side (driverside),the sensor just unplug the connector and then unscrew it and out it comes.
