To change engine coolent temp sensor, you must first remove coolant from radiator. on the bottom side of the radiator closest to the ground there is a red plastic plug. use a phillips screw driver to remove plug and drain fluid. then remove the air filter box. then remove both coolant hoses that are above and on the side of the sensor.unplug the sensor ..the sensor can be removed with a 19mm wrench. make sure you have a cup to catch the coolant as you unscrew the sensor.
