SOURCE: how do i change cylinder head sensor and where is it located

if you know engine fairly well the sensor should be pretty easy to spot it will be coming out of the cylinder head and have a wire attached to it although I haven't done much work on those models I wasn't aware they had that type of sensor are you sure your not looking for the temp sending unit? if so you will need to look on the intake manifold or near the water pump either way you may consider buying the sensor first then matching it with the wire/wires coming into it then simply unplug that sensor and unscrew (standard threads) make sure to properly seal the threads on the new one tighten to spec (be careful not to over tighten this component more than likely will thread into aluminum threads) better to be to loose and have to be tightened again than to have to replace a major component

I CAN TOTALLY FIX THIS!!!! I just fixed this problem with mine! I have been fighting with it for 2 yrs. You need to replace you PCV valve if it is bad. And then clean out your IAC (ignition air control) take it off completely and spray the whole inside with with carb cleaner or brake cleaner scrape all the carbon build up out of it and work the spring in there untill it opens and closes easily! you gotta really work it though, once you have it all cleaned out put it all back together and it should work! When i did it it instantly fixed my truck!

Is the cylnder head temp sensor and the cooliant temp sensor the same thing on a 2004 Lincoln ls 6 cyndler? Can't find the cooliant temp sensor everything redirects to cylnder head temp sensor even at...


cylinder head temp sensor measures the temp of the cylinder head metal itself and the coolant sensor measures the temp of the coolant only. the coolant sensor is mounted in the coolant and the head sensor is mounted only in the metal of the head and not into anything else. check with a dealer.

2003 mountaineer V8 Temp gauge jumps to hot not over heating. Replaced thermostat, no change


The Engine Temp. sensor is bad. it is under the intake manifold. if there is a miss also check under the coils over the spark plugs. If there is Coolant in the spark plug holes .then the intake gasket is leaking. The intake manifold needs to come off to change the coolant sensor. When off look for corrosion on the cylinder head at the coolant port. If there is corrsion then the cylinder head must be replaced.

Have a 95 ford ranger 4 cyl need to know where coolant temp switch is located my gauge is inop i found coolant temp sensor for computor need one for the gauge


On the 4 cylinder motor (2.3L,2.5L), the coolant temp sensor can be located
on the left side rear of the engine, below the cylinder head.

A picture of a typical Coolant Temp Sensor (aka ECT) is below:

Be sure to partially drain coolant below the level of the sensor to avoid spillage when removing the old part. Best of luck on your repair!

My 1998 expedition overheated yesterday (gauges did not indicate hot). It smoked and when it cooled down I put coolant in and today when I went to drive it was not wanting to accelerate and the rpm dial...


The reason it did not read hot, on your temp. gauge, is cause your temp. sensor read's coolant or water temp only, not air, if cooling system is empty, coolant temp. sensor will not read, like an air temp. sensor well, more the likely there could be a coolant leak for cooling system to be empty, also could have damage your cylinder's head's, need to have a block test and cylinder compression test done to fine out if head's are damage.

Replacing coolant temperature sensor on 5.4L, where is it located?


its not a true coolant temp sensor. you are looking for cylinder head temp sensor. it is located on the driver's side head, at the front, on the inboard side of the head.
