Not sure about your car. Normally the temp sensor is located somewhere on the intake manifold as it needs to sense the coolant temp. You can get the precise location from the service manual. Check with your local library. they have access to free service manuals for almost any car, but you can only get access at the library. Sometimes from your home computer if you have a library card and they provide the u/n and p/w.

SOURCE: Temp Sensor

The temp sensor known as the engine coolant temp. sensor tells the computer if the engine is overheating and so forth and tells the injectors how much fuel to give the engine. The temp. sending unit is what controls what your guage reads. It sounds like you need the temp. sending unit. It located near the thermostat housing with a single pole connector.

SOURCE: ECTS location

The sensor is on the left side of the engine between cyl 2 & 3. It can be removed using a deep socket or a ratcheting box end wrench. It is a pain but can be done.

SOURCE: i changed the thermostat, radiator, fan switch,

Good Evening, you are doing all the right things. However have you tried flushing the heater core, most times the heater core itself can have some build up inside and you get no heat in the cabin. The first thing to do is to check the heater hoses if one is hot and the other is not then I would look there. Second I would also check inside at your blend door and see if it is switching over when you move it from cold to heat. Those would be the places to start. Hope this helps.

Cooling fan relay location


What year is the vehicle ? The cooling fan relays have nothing to do with the temp. gauge . GM had problems with the stepper motors inside the instrument cluster . Hooking up a professional scan tool to check what the PCM - engine computer is seeing from the engine temp sensor . You have duel cooling fans controlled by three relays . Checking to see what the actual engine temp. would be the first step , checking to see if the scan tool can control the cooling fans .
Look on youtube at videos on gm instrument cluster stepper motor problems

On my daughters sl2 it is on the driver side. A note though, there are 2. Crazy i know, one above the other. One goes to the guage and one to the computer. When my son had the car it would not stay running at idol, had to rev the engine to keep it going. The engine would shake hard too, what through me was the guage in the care read fine but once i found the sensors the one looked fine the other looked like it split in half. Hope that helps

2004 starus coupe fans?


If the motor does not sense it is getting too hot, the fans will not come on. When it reaches a certain temp, they will come on. If you are having problems with over heating, and the fans are not coming on, I would suspect the fan temp sensor, or the PCM.

Fan wires go to relay, than after relay, they go to engine temperature sensor located on the side of the block. There is another sensor usually attached to thermostat housing. This would be coolant temp sensor. You can test both sensors with an ohmmeter or multi-meter

95 grand am radiator fan only runs with AC on


Cooling Fan Temp Sensor is the First thing You Check (with what you have described) Cooling Fan Should ALways come On When The A/C is turned On as A/C Adds A Load to Engine, If Temp Sensor is Faulty it Will Not Give GROUND Signal to ECM >For COOLING FAN >RELAY to Give ground and turn ON The Fan.
There ARE 2 temp Sensors that Serve Different Purposes 1 is for Dash READING GAGE & Or TEMP LIGHT the Other is For ECM or Fan Relay (SAME Thing) you Said>""can disconnect the sensor and fan continues to run" < This Leads me to think you Changed the Wrong One. Not Questioning your Skills Just Here to Help.
TEMP SENSOR FOR 3.1L V6 is Located upper RH rear of engine compartment, near exhaust system. Temp SENSOR for 2.3L Engine is Located in LH rear of engine compartment.
I Hope this Helps Lead you to a NON-OVERHEATING Pontiac.
Good Luck and Have A Great Evening. rejakwilson
