It is on the Driver side of engine in between the COP's (Coil on plugs) simply unplug the wire use a 19 or 3/4 deep well socket and unscrew it and put it new one... The whole process should only take 10-15 minutes.

Location of engine coolant temperature sensor


Automobiles: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 4-cylinder 2.0L MFI DOHC

NOTE
The "left" side of the engine is the driver's side.

The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor (a device which changes resistance or voltage as temperature changes). The sensor detects the temperature of engine coolant and provides a corresponding signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module - aka "the car's computer").

The ECT sensor is mounted in the following locations (small Ford engines):

1.8L engines: in the cylinder head
1.9L engines: threaded into the heater hose inlet pipe
2.0L engines: at the left rear of the engine

2.0L Zetec Engine

(1) Partially drain the engine cooling system using a clean container. If coolant is in good condition, retain for reuse.
(2) Disconnect the battery ground cable.
(3) Disconnect the electrical wiring connector from the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
(4) Remove the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.


12_5_2011_5_38_05_pm.jpg

Fig. 1 Escort ZX2 ECT sensor - The retaining clip is removed (at the solid arrow). Withdraw ECT sensor by gently wiggling/pulling in the direction of the dashed arrow.

To install:

NOTE
Coat the ECT sensor O-ring with clean coolant prior to installation.

(1) Replace the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.
(2) Connect the electrical wiring connector from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.
(3) Connect the battery ground cable.
(4) Refill the engine cooling system. An inexpensive plastic "Radiator Funnel" will help with this task.

Where is the temp gage sensor location 2001 merk cougar


Hi there,

The temperature gauge relies on readings from the Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) Sensor.

The ECT sensor is usually located on (or near) the thermostat/coolant housing.

Refer to component No. 8 (2.0L Engine):

wolfman304_70.gif


Refer to component No. 9 (2.5L Engine) locate under bypass tube:

Hope this helps.

Where is the location of the coolent temp. sensor on a 04 dodge truck v6 3.7 . I need to replace it.

Fig. ECT sensor location-3.7L, 4.7L engines.

icn_arrow.gifBack to Top Inspect/Test/Replace 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.

Where is ect sensor located on 2006 monte carlo 3.5 engine


The ECT (Engine Coolant Temp sensor) should be located by the coolant thermostat housing or where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. It screws in with a plug or small/short wire harness attached to it. -------------------------------- To replace ect sensor:---
  1. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  2. Remove the intake manifold cover, if necessary.
  3. Remove the exhaust crossover.
  4. Disconnect the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical connector.
  5. Remove the ECT sensor.

Ect high input


Hi: The engine coolant temp sensor, or ECT is located close to where the upper radiator hose conncects to the engine. It is a hex shaped sensor, with a electrical connector coming straight out from the end.

  • sends the PCM a signal indicating engine temperature.
  • resistance decreases as coolant temperature increases.
The ECT measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The sensor is threaded into an engine coolant passage.

ECT - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor

The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor (Figure 27) is a thermistor device in which resistance changes with temperature. The electrical resistance of a thermistor decreases as the temperature increases, and increases as the temperature decreases. The varying resistance affects the voltage drop across the sensor terminals and provides electrical signals to the PCM corresponding to temperature.
Thermistor-type sensors are considered passive sensors. A passive sensor is connected to a voltage divider network so that varying the resistance of the passive sensor causes a variation in total current flow.
Voltage that is dropped across a fixed resistor in a series with the sensor resistor determines the voltage signal at the PCM. This voltage signal is equal to the reference voltage minus the voltage drop across the fixed resistor.
The ECT measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The sensor is threaded into an engine coolant passage. The ECT sensor is similar in construction to the IAT sensor.
