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

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.

Temp gauge wont go up hard to start

most likely the temp sensor is bad that would make the car start hard by adding to much fuel and also would make the gauge not work. it is easy to change by unscrewing the old sensor that is located in the end of the cylinder head.
