Question about 2004 Dodge Dakota
The sensor is normally found on the lower radiator tank and before getting too quick to buy one, check the connection of it first.
Some have a quick disconnect in the body of the sensor, others have a 'pigtail' that has a connector at the end of it.
Simple corrosion can cause loss of contact. If it has two leads, one will be ground so disturb both. If it has one lead, loosen the sensor a little (half turn or so) and re-tighten to clean the grounded side of it.
Typically, loss of the ground is what can cause the temp gauge to peg on the high side.
