Coolant temperature sensor location on 97 ford expedition

I believe they are located in the intake manifold somewhere. Make sure the one that tells the computer the coolant temp is ACTUALLY giving out the correct temperature. I had a bad one one time in a 1993 Ford F-150, 5.8L....... no check engine light came on but hard to start. The bad sensor was telling the computer it was 32 degrees F when it was almost 80 degrees outside.!!
Garbage in=Garbage out.

Here is a video link from Youtube. There are 2 sensors, 1 for the guage and the other tells the on-board computer how hot/cold the coolant is. The one for the guage has 1-wire and the other one has 2 wires.
Hope this helps, ask more if you need to. What kind of problem are you having? No heat inside? Guage needle not getting into the normal area?

2000 Gallant. Installed new radiator, thermostat, and water pump. Why does temp gauge read hot when it's not?

Disconnect the temperature sending unit wire connector for the gague ( not the one for the computer ) with the key on. The temp hand should stay on cold mark. Next, ground the wire and the temp hand should go to full hot indicating the gague and wiring to it are ok. If ok suspect a faulty temp sending sensor if the cooling system is full and properly bled

What kind of refrigerant does a 1997 ford expedition use, I was going to use a r134 contection but it is to small to fit on my conection. When I look up what refrigerant to use in my 1997 ford expedition...

Your vehicle does use R134a. You need a quick connect hose that does only fit the low side fitting. The high side fitting is larger, you can not attach it to the wrong one, it will not fit.

How do you flush out a heater core in a 2002 ford expedition

No reason to. It is normally flushed out all the time by normal use. Sediment builds up in the engine and radiator, not heater. If the heater not getting hot enough, it is most likely the engine thermostat or the heater control valve. When you start a cold engine, the main radiator hose to the thermostat should stay cold for about 5 minutes, until the engine is totally up to temperature. Only then should the thermostat open and allow that hose to instantly get hot. If it slowly gets warm, then it is stuck open and needs replacement.
