Temp sensor on 1998 toyota tacoma 3400


The engine coolant temperature sensor is usually located on the thermostat housing. This sensor controls the readings of the coolant temperature gauge in your vehicle when the ignition switch is ON .Here's a link to the sensor. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Drain the coolant from the vehicle.
  2. Disconnect the engine wiring protector from the brackets.
  3. Disconnect the sensor wire.
  4. Using a 19mm deep socket, remove the sensor and gasket.
To install:
  1. Apply a thin coat of Loctite or equivalent to the switch. By hand, carefully thread the switch into the engine. If resistance is felt at all, remove the switch and inspect the threads for any damage. Continue to install the switch. Once installed, tighten to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  2. Connect the sensor wiring.
  3. Install the engine wire protector to the brackets.
  4. Refill the coolant. Start the engine and check for leaks.

Hi Friend:

To Locate your thermastat, Open your Hood and look down at the top of your radiator.You'll see a Top Raditor Hose that goes from your radiator to your Thermastat Housing.

You'll see a Hose clamp on the Thermastat housing .

NOTE: before you loosen the Hose Clamp Make sure you your car is cooled down and remove your radiator cap to release any pressure that is in your system.

After the Hose is off you'll see a Domed shaped Housing that is your Thermastat Housing. Remove the Bolts that Hold the Housing on and Seals the Cooling System.From Leaking out of the Housing.

After removing the Housing you'll see your Thermastat .Just remove it and Clean up all old gasket Material so you can replace the gasket with your new one .But put in your new thermastat 1st.

Then make sure you seal the gasket with Gasket Glue. And Replace the Housing Bolts and Tighten up good and Sung.

Put back on your hose then clamp.And Refill your Radiator with Coolant.

This will get your new thermastat in and get you Ready to go .

Coolant temperature relay switch


Most vehicles use a coolant temperature sensor which is located near the thermostat directly connected into the coolant line, or near the thermostat housing, there are relays for the cooling fan which is usually located in the power distribution box under the hood.
