SOURCE: I need the location of the coolant temerature sensor on a 99 taco

Its at the rear of the engine, close to the firewall. Look at the intake part of the engine block for 2 wires that connect into the sensor plug. It is installed vertically.

SOURCE: need to locate the engine coolant temperature

It is located near the thermostat housing. Follow the upper rad hose. It is removed by a socket & ratchet. You must disconnect the wires leading in to it & install in reverse order. Use atray to catch any lost antifreese & refill. Do not overtighten, only 5ft.lbs. Good luck!

Coolant Temperature Sensor

Print
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The coolant temperature sensor can be found threaded either into the cylinder head or the coolant crossover passage.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system to a level at least below the sensor.
  3. Using the appropriate sized wrench or socket, remove the sensor.
  4. To install, first lightly coat the threads of the sensor with a non-hardening sealer, then tighten the sensor until snug.
  5. Refill the cooling system. The Coolant Temperature Sensor is located: Under hood, center, lower engine area, mounted on driver side of engine below intake manifold by the thermostat.

Replaced head gaskets on pontiac trans am 1997 lt1 eng now its over heating


trapped air. When temp needle climbs to 1/4 way, loosen coolant temp sensor to bleed off trapped air in cylinder heads. Air is gone once coolant starts to stream out, but only open slightly at a time. May have to do in increments as trapped air will cause rapid overheat

MY RAV4 engine stalls while slowing down. Whats the problem do you think?


well lets try inspecting your coolant temp sensor for the ecu, not for your gage it is green whit two wires going into it, if any corrosion replace sensor and pigtail, your ecu may be dumping lots of fuel thinking eng still cold when is hot, this also wahs off your rings and by adding oil bumps compression and starts, hope this helps.

No heat


You could have to much coolant. Pure antifreeze coolant is designed to be mixed with water to work effectively. You could also have a bad or clogged heater core. Are a thermostat that is stuck open causing the coolant system to just flow coolant straight through the engine block, heater core, and radiator without stopping long enough to warm up and provide cab heat. Certain sensor depend on normal engine operating tempatures to work properly. Hope this helps.

Why would coolant fans not come on, fans work. Checked fans already, they work if straight wired.


Check coolant tempature sensor or engine tempature sensor or fan # 1 & fan # 2 relay modules .

2000 Toyota avalon. The engine tempature guage is not working. I have checked all the fuses and all are good. I assume there is a tempature guage wire comming off the engine to the guage somewhere but do...


I"d say you may have a bad coolant temp. sensor or a bad/faulty wiring connection to it. It should be located near the housing where your thermostat is located. Follow your top radiator hose to find the location.

According to Autozone.com:

Because ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor procedures vary depending upon their location, first locate the part. You may need to partially drain the engine coolant to prevent coolant spillage.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Unplug the ECT.
  • Then, unscrew it.
  • Reverse the removal procedures to install the new part.
  • Connect the negative battery cable to the battery.

Fig. Remove the coolant temperature sensor
The coolant temperature gauge sensor is a temperature-variable resistor, or thermistor. As coolant temperature increases, the resistance of the sensor decreases or decreases, depending on the type of sensor.
A1 and A2 platforms use a different type of circuit that A3 vehicles. On A1 and A2 vehicles, the circuit is a "resistance to ground" type. A3 vehicles use a "variable voltage" type, where a voltage is supplied to the sensor. Because of the circuitry design on A3 vehicles, testing of the coolant temperature gauge is limited.
The engine coolant temperature gauge uses a heat sensitive sending unit to transmit an electrical signal to the gauge. The sending unit is a heat sensitive variable resistor that is located on or near to the cylinder head and threads into an engine coolant passage. The sensors are a Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) type. As the temperature increases, the electrical resistance of the sensor decreases. As the coolant temperature changes, so does the resistance of the sensor. The gauge is calibrated within the operating range of the sensor and interprets the resistance value to display the coolant temperature.
Beginning with model year 1994, the engine coolant gauge and the Engine Control Module (ECM) temperature sensors were combined into one sensor with 4 terminals. The basic operation remains the same in that their resistance decreases as the coolant temperature increases, however the actual resistance values of the 2 sensor circuits are different. The electrical connector of the 4-wire terminal sensor ( 1 and 2 ) is keyed to prevent improper connection of the sensor's electrical circuit.

well you should first hard wire the non working fan to the battery to see if it is ok, then I would check the engine coolant temperature sensor, it is the sensor that tells the computer to turn the radiator fan on
