SOURCE: replacement of coolant temperature sensor

located under intake in water crossover pipe,you can access the sensor by removing intake chamber box,then pcv hose connected to the block,the connector is orangeish 2pin,use a 19mmdeep socket on a 3/8 ratchet to get it loose,make sure engine is cool,also make sure there is a new brass washer with your new sensor,sometimes the old washer comes off when removing the sensor,sometimes it sticks to the pipe,some coolant will escape so make sure to top it off

SOURCE: PO128 - ECT engine coolant temperature sensor defective

The thermostat has stuck open. Or you are low on coolant becasue of a leak somewhere. Either way once it sets the code you will need to fix it to make it not set again. The t stat is not easy it's not the one on top of the engine it's on the side behind the alternator.
Also make sure the water pump doesn't have any play. Grab onto the the fan and move it front and back, If there is a clunking feeling or you can see it move alot then you need to replace that also.
Just make sure it's not running when you try and grab the fan. LOL

SOURCE: where is the coolant temperature

generally they are on the cylender head thier are two or more ,all 1 wire sensors 1 for the fan 1 for the temp gauge 1 for the computer.if you buy the part you need it will show you the correct sensor on the head. all sensors are in front or on back of head

What does code P 119 mean on my Cadillac 1994 Seville STS


P0119 Cadillac Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Intermittent
Possible causes - Low engine coolant level

Temperature stays cold then suddenly rises to overheating and blows cold air in cabin


Cold air in the cabin suggests that the coolant level is low. Check that first.

Code 1 senser P0118 on a 2004 V.W beetle dicesel


P0118 for Volkswagen - (ECT) Engine Colant Temperature Circuit High

Symptoms:- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes:
(Inspect the following... Repair/Replace if necessary)
- Low engine coolant level
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor
- Faulty engine coolant thermostat

P0118 VOLKSWAGEN Description: The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The modified signal returns to the (ECM) as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.
When is the code detected?:When an excessively high voltage from the sensor is sent to ECM.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need further assistance.

The cooling fan comes on even when engine is cold and the engine stalls out on my 2001 Saturn l200


Would seem to indicate a faulty coolant sensor. If the sensor is mistakenly triggering the cooling radiator fan to come on then it most likely that it telling the ECU in error that the engine is at running temperature. When the engine is cold at start up the coolant sensor is supposed to inform the ECU of that fact. The ECU then sets a longer injection time to enrich the fuel/air mix to keep the engine running. As the engine warms the ECU responds to the coolant sensor signals by shortening and therefore leaning the fuel air mix. Your engine is stalling due to there not being enough fuel at idle at low temperatures. Check the connections to the sensor, they should be clean and free of corrosion (do not confuse the sensor with the temperature sender connected to the indicator on the dashboard; the sender has only one wire to the top of it). Check that there is continuity between the coolant pins. If it has four pins then the pair of pins diagonally opposed are on the same circuit. If there is a break (infinite resistance) then replace the sensor. You can check the sensor function by removing it and measuring its electrical response when its tip is put in hot water; generally the hotter it is the lower its resistance, with one pair of pins being about half the resistance of the other pair. As it cools the sensor increases its resistance. failure to see this indicates that a new sensor is required

My friends car came up with this code and p0117 and he says when he accelerates it feels like its holding back


The P0117 code would not effect the acceleration of the vehicle. Probably just need a good tune up unless there are other codes showing in the system.

P0117 - Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Low Input. The engine coolant temperature sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the ECM. The modified signal returns to the ECM as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.

Causes:
- Harness or connectors (The sensor circuit is open or shorted.)
- Engine coolant temperature sensor may be faulty
- Low engine coolant level.

Solutions:
- Replaced coolant temperature sensor
- Repair connector or harness

This obd computer code po115 what does this mean?


this indicates a open or short-circuit in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit......

so, assuming that there has been no wiring work going on, or other problems...i would be replacing the coolant temp sensor, as required.
