The temp sensor will be close to or in the thermostat housing.(top radiator hose). A temp sensor also controls cooling fan. this sensor is usually mounted in the radiator. I strongly recommend that you purchase a Chilton manual for this vehicle.

Where is located the 2006 ford focus of 2.0 engine coolant module temperature sensor


It doesn't have a coolant sensor it has a CHT, cylinder head temperature sensor. This type of sensor is much more precise measuring engine operating temperature.

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.

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.

You might need a coolant sensor,now,if the thermostat,is not opening,or there is air in the system,this would cause the problem also,so make sure all of this has been took care of,most likely is the problem,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Need to know where the cylinder head temperature sensor is on a 2000 ford focus with a 2.0 zetec engine


It should be on the driver's side of the head in the heater hose or tube, there should be two of them, one for the computer and one for the temperature gauge. Good luck.

Is a ford focus non zetec interchangable with a zetec motor


If you mean can you drop in a replacement zetec engine then yes. As far as parts, yes it is as well. The differences mostly pertaining to the ECU and electrical sensors.
