Location of engine coolant temperature sensor


Automobiles: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 4-cylinder 2.0L MFI DOHC

NOTE
The "left" side of the engine is the driver's side.

The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor (a device which changes resistance or voltage as temperature changes). The sensor detects the temperature of engine coolant and provides a corresponding signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module - aka "the car's computer").

The ECT sensor is mounted in the following locations (small Ford engines):

1.8L engines: in the cylinder head
1.9L engines: threaded into the heater hose inlet pipe
2.0L engines: at the left rear of the engine

2.0L Zetec Engine

(1) Partially drain the engine cooling system using a clean container. If coolant is in good condition, retain for reuse.
(2) Disconnect the battery ground cable.
(3) Disconnect the electrical wiring connector from the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
(4) Remove the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.


12_5_2011_5_38_05_pm.jpg

Fig. 1 Escort ZX2 ECT sensor - The retaining clip is removed (at the solid arrow). Withdraw ECT sensor by gently wiggling/pulling in the direction of the dashed arrow.

To install:

NOTE
Coat the ECT sensor O-ring with clean coolant prior to installation.

(1) Replace the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.
(2) Connect the electrical wiring connector from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.
(3) Connect the battery ground cable.
(4) Refill the engine cooling system. An inexpensive plastic "Radiator Funnel" will help with this task.

Fig. ECT sensor location-3.7L, 4.7L engines.

icn_arrow.gifBack to Top Inspect/Test/Replace Because ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor procedures vary depending upon their location, first locate the part. You may need to partially drain the engine coolant to prevent coolant spillage.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Unplug the ECT.
  • Then, unscrew it.
  • Reverse the removal procedures to install the new part.
  • Connect the negative battery cable to the battery.

To install:

  1. Coat the threads only with sealer P/N 9985253 or an equivalent.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  2. Install the ECT sensor and tighten the ECT sensor to 18.5 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  3. Connect the ECT sensor electrical connector.
  4. Refill the engine coolant system.

  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Engine coolant into a suitable container to a level below the ECT sensor gm_car_cad_sev_ect_loc.gif

    • ECT sensor harness connector (A)
    • ECT sensor
To Install:
NOTE: Use care when handling the coolant sensor. Do not drop damage to the coolant sensor will affect the operation of the fuel control system.
NOTE: Replacement components must be correct for the application. Components requiring the use of the thread locking compound, lubricants, corrosion inhibitors, or sealants are identified in the service procedure. Some replacement components may come with these coatings already applied. Do not use these coatings on components unless specified. These coatings can affect the final torque which may affect the operation of the component. Use the correct torque specification when installing components to avoid damage.
  1. Coat the sensor threads with GM P/N 1050805 sealer or equivalent
  2. Install or connect the following:
    • ECT sensor
      1. Torque to: 15 lb-ft. (20 Nm)
    • ECT sensor harness connector
    • Engine coolant
  3. Start the engine then idle until normal operating temperature is attained.
  4. Recheck coolant level and top off as needed.
  5. Test drive the vehicle.
--- I couldn't find a reference for the 'fan coolant relay switch' although I'm sure there is one on this car.

Need to fing location of ECT sensor on a 1.8L turbo 2004 jetta


Take off the two covers on top of your engine. The ECT sensor should be on your right side of the engine. It may be either black or green and has a 4 blade connector. There is a plastic clip you slide out to replace the sensor. Hope this helps. Only takes a few minutes to replace
