Check to see if the radiator and A/C condenser are clear of airflow obstructions (damage, excessive leaves and dirt, etc). Check to make sure that the electric fans are running. There are 2 speeds. As it warms up, it should go slow, then when it gets hot, the fans should go to high speed. Check also to see if radiator is blocked up. It should be at engine temp on one side, and it should be cooler, but still warm, on the other side. Neglected coolant causing rust and debris blockages in the radiator are common to these cars. If the coolant is rusty and orange/brown, it may also indicate a failing water pump

Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins.This may reset the lights timer. If it comes back on within the next few days the take it to a large auto parts store and most will bring their computer out and hook it to your car and read the code the light will leave in your car computer,then they tell what the code says and try to sell you the part.You might car the auto parts store first and tell them what you have and ask if then can read your code for you.Its usually a free service.

Make sure you replaced the right one there are two sensor's for the coolant, one takes coolant temp and the other one runs the fans for the radiator. Both are located on drivers side of the block. 2 wire leads on each how ever both are different in sending readings to the computer.Both look just alike also. Just make sure you replaced the right one. Or replace both.

sound like engine getting hot when you pull a heavy load going up hills. when putting load on a engine it will over heat and will lose power because it inhales less air by volume.make sure your air filter is not clogged.a diesel engine needs a good air flow or breathe the air filter need to clean.also a restricted exhaust.if you have a restricted air filter and exhaust system the turbo not going to work good.also check coolant fan clutch.if you turn it by hand and it free wheel fan clutch needs to be replaced.if cooling fan clutch has resistance then its good.a bad coolant fan clutch will cause engine to over heat.

Sounds like a bad idler pulley,or belt tensioner. Most likely not water pump since the check engine light is not on. Altho it couold be the water pump and for some reason (bad sensor, burnt out light) the check engine isnt coming on. Either way it would be best to have it looked at.
