The temperature sensor in located at the thermostat housing under the throttle body. You'll see two wires going in to the sensor, make sure the wires are not damaged and still connected. It's rear for the sensor to fail but it's an easy fix to replace it, just disconnect the wire harness and unscrew the sensor with a deep socket and replace with the new sensor in the reveres process. Good luck and hope this helps.

Failed emissions test


First step is to have the code or codes read.If the "check engine light" is on there will be a reason and should be a code or codes to be read.Once you have the codes,you can determine the correction needed to get that "check engine light" out and a valid emissions test completed.Get back to us with the codes found.

Tempature gauge


Remove the serpentine belt, check to see if there is play in the water pump pulley. If there is no play in the pulley, then the water pump is fine. Remove the thermostat and lower radiator hose and flush both Radiator and the Engine with a hose for a few minutes, put everything back together, refill coolant. Test, let me know if it worked. Thanks

My Tempeture Gauge went through the roof. I pulled over thinking my engine was overheating, it was not. Now my tempeture gauge is interfearing with my speedometer. When I am driving 65 i am really only...


Its likely a bad temature sensor there is two differant ones for the tempature one is called the ECT if that one were bad the vehicle wouldn't be running so good because it tells the computer what the engine temp is the other one controls the gauge olny that sounds like it because it can effict readings on other daskboard instremants . So as long as you are not over heating coolant levels oil is up there and its running ok its a simple fix that you could do your self for under 20 dollars. The sensor is located near where the radiator the upper one hooks to the engine it will have one wire going to it the ECT will have three and be located vary close to it because thats the best place for it to get the best reading of the engine coolant tempature and thats what it needs to know

Hi, The gas gauge is not working. Local mechanic tells me the module for the gas gauge needs to be replaced. Will not replacing the gas gauge module, keep the 'service...


Hello, the gas gage problem is caused by a defective gas gage sending unit, the sending unit is only sold as the entire Assembly which is called the fuel pump module, that said the gas gage problem is not related to the check/service engine light issue, that is an indication of a problem in the electronic engine control system or emission control system, when this light is on a fault code is put into the memory of the computer called the PCM, to retrieve this code requires a test be run called the OBD2 fault code test, this is done through the diagnostic connector that is in front of the steering wheel and under the dash, a code reader is needed, you can also get the code read for free by most discount auto parts stores like Kragen or Autozone.

The check engine light keeps coming on and shutting off. I checked all the fluids and there is nothing low. The only thing that i can see that is different is the oil gauge goes up and down when I stop and...


The check engine light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

I went for an emissions test today and it failed the mechanic said the car might be running too hot or too lean also notice the the heat gauge stays at cold when driving.HELP


I suspect you need a new thermostat. It should be running at 195 degrees F.

If the engine does not fully warm up, the engine can not go into emission control mode.

The engine temperature sensor sends a signal to the engine/emissions computer that the engine is now at normal operating temp. The computer then starts controlling fuel flow, EGR, etc. so that emissions are being controlled.

When the enigne is cold, you are in what we call "open loop" meaning no emission control.

Get the thermostat installed first. Make sure it's the same temp rating as the one that's in there. Either 180 degrees or 195 degrees.

Then you should pass.

Emissions test fail mixture to rich


what i used to do is pour a small bottle of rubbing alcohol in the gas tank....this mixture burns very hot so it will clean everything out thus burning all the gas particles off......i used to do this in a 1988 mustang gt that ran real rich because of performance parts and i couldnt ever get it to pass the tests....also try o2 sensors as well as possibly map sensor if equipped...this could be the problem....
temp gauge not working? check wiring and also check tempature sending unit and block temperature sensor.
