This engine does not have nor use a engine coolant temp sensor. It uses a cylinder head temp sensor. It is mounted under the intake which has to be removed to gain access to the sensor. It is on the drivers side head next to the intake ports

Change ECTsensor on a 2001 f150 5.4L triton


You have 2 seperate engine temp sensors....
1) coolant temperature sensor, which is located next to the water outlet on top of the engien where the upper radiator hose connects. This coolant temp signal is used by the powertrain control module to control such things as fuel mixture, transmission shift points, and cooling fan operation when the engine is hot. If this sensor has failed in such a way that the PCM thinks that the engine is cold, it should also be running very rich (black smoke from the tail pipe, rough idle, very poor fuel economy).
2)Cylinder Head Temperature sensor..You probably cannot see this one, as it is located on the head underneath the intake manifold. You have to Remove the intake manifold to get to this part...Sometimes you can get by just changing the thermostat ...If it is faulty it will show as a sensor..
Anywho they usually twist out ond in..Always make sure you diconnect the battery while working with electronics....
If it is giving a P0125 code this is usually caused by a thermostat that is worn out..

That code means cylinder head over temp and has nothing to do with the coil. Check for proper coolant level first. May also be blocked coolant passages in the cylinder head but unlikely. Or a faulty temp sensor
