The temp sensor for the gauge is in the drivers side head between the #1 and #3 spark plugs. The one for the computer (if you have a ccc carb) is in the intake by the thermostat housing.

What makes my Chevy malibu 2005 v6 put system code po128 out
My wife's saturn vue is also throwing the same code. I'm starting with the thermostat because we just did the radiator (leaking) so I know there's no blockages there.

2003 Chevy Malibu where is the coolant temperature switch

2.2L (L61) Engine
The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is located just to the left of the exhaust manifold in the thermostat housing between the two coolant pipes.

3.5L (LZ4) & 3.9L (LZ9) Engine
The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is located on the left cylinder head at the rear. It is just above the transaxle mounting bolts.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

My 2002 chevy malibu is overheating. I have replaced the thermostat, the water pump, the temperature control swtch, and the the radiator, what else could be causing my car to run hot

An actual obstruction in the engine block, wrong spark plug temperature range for your vehicle, or, you may just have a faulty temperature sensor...
Good luck.

97 chevy malibu 3100 engine, what should the voltage be to the coolant tempture sendor be?

The ECT is a two wire sensor, a 5-volt reference signal is sent to the sensor and the signal return is based upon the change in the measured resistance due to temperature. The coorect way to test this sensor is by OHMs, not voltage. See the chart below.

1997 Chevy Malibu cooling fans problem

I don't have the solution but I have the same problem. You are not alone. I have done everything you have done and have run out of options as far as fixing it with OEM parts. I am going to over ride the system with a hot wire and toggle switch and tie into the led wire on the #1 fan so when temp starts to rise past 180 degrees I can turn the fans on. Freeway driving is ok for me, no fan needed, just when I get off the freeway and around town engine gets hot. My toggle switch has a L.E.D. light in it to indicate the switch is on.

The P0218 Code is primarily intended to indicate a faulty thermostat.
Have the thermostat replaced

Other possible causes that could trigger this code would be:
Low engine coolant level
faulty cooling fan
faulty coolant temperature sensor
faulty intake air temperature sensor
