Hi. You need to dry out your car. You have too much moisture inside.
To dry it out you need to air dry out for a few days with the windows open and inside a garage. Then you'll need a demolding agent and wash or wipe it out. Hope that helps.

How do I change the temperature sensor under the

It’s located on the driver’s side of the engine on top /side of the head.. midway.. I don’t think you need to remove the engine cover to see it.. if it is the correct one it will have a dark green top.. the bad version has a black top… but they can all go out to lunch on you if old enough.

To replace.. make sure the car is cool..
You need a hood tool.. or small pair of pliers to remove the retaining clip that holds it in place.
Place a rag under and around it to catch the coolant.. you will lose less than a half a cup.. if that.

Pull the retaining clip back toward you.. try not to drop it.. (another good reason for the rag)

Wiggle the sensor.. pop it out.. and replace with the new green top one make sure you clean the area well.. and when you reinstall the new one that the c clip goes back on straight or it will leak.

Once you see the part out of the box.. you will understand how it works

Start the car.. check for leaks.. run until warm with the heater on.. top up the coolant overflow bottle with distilled water.. (if more than a half a cup.. you should mix the proper anti freeze and distilled water and then top up with that)

Good luck

It seems that Midas is going to stand behind the work that they did on your car. If there is something happening that they haven't already diagnosed, they should be able to tell you that, too.

My guess is that the green liquid you saw was coolant coming from the overflow of the coolant recovery tank because the system is overheating and the excess pressure is forcing coolant out. There may still be air in the cooling system, or possibly air is getting into the system from a bad head gasket or crack in the head or block. Check to see if there is any evidence of oil in the coolant, or if there is water in the crankcase -- the oil on the dipstick will look 'milky'.

it should be under the left hand side of the front winscreen trim, there should be an access panel with for scew head clips. Pull these about half way out and you should be able to get to the pollen filter, be careful with these panels when the car is cold as they crack
