SOURCE: how to install a coolant temp sensor in a 1995 ford escort

The coolant temperature switch and fan control switch are located sie by side, mounted in the steel portion of the heater hose that runs from the thermostat housing to the firewall, it is underneath the air intake tube and the ignition coil pack, mounted to the back of the cylinder head. Either drain out some coolant or be very quick, and you can unplug and unscrew each switch from the hose and replace it with a new one. Make sure the engine is cold. After replacing make sure to check the coolant level add as neccessary. The single wire connector switch is for the guage, and the other is for fan control. Hope this helps, let me know.

How do i fix my coolant leaking problem. My radiator, temp gauge switch, sensor, and hoses are all leaking coolant. I already fixed my thermostat but what should i do about the leaking problem?

Sorry to bring bad news but if all those things are leaking coolant then you will have to remove, clean, repair and possibly replace all of the parts where the leaks are occuring and reinstall being sure everything is tight.

Driving down the road the temperture gauge pegs out hot and the engine starts to run rough and finally cuts off. Pull the battery cable to reset the electricals and everything is back to normal.

likely the coolant temp sensor. Some of those newish fords have a engine protection system that shuts down cylinders, then full shutdown if the computer gets a signal that the engine is getting hot.
Good luck!

1995 Ford Thunderbird Temp Gauge goes up when idling

Try to bleed the system. Also keep an eye on the coolant level. If it drops and you see no leaks the you could have a blown head gasket. Also replace the thermostat and hoses.
