SOURCE: location of engine coolant temperature sensor on

It is a 2 wire seneor under the throttle body. You will have to remove the air breather and it will be a brass/black plastic sensor. A 3/4 socket will fit it.Good Luck

located under intake in water crossover pipe,you can access the sensor by removing intake chamber box,then pcv hose connected to the block,the connector is orangeish 2pin,use a 19mmdeep socket on a 3/8 ratchet to get it loose,make sure engine is cool,also make sure there is a new brass washer with your new sensor,sometimes the old washer comes off when removing the sensor,sometimes it sticks to the pipe,some coolant will escape so make sure to top it off

Location of engine coolant temperature temperature sensor


Most parts stores have a part location chart in their system and can probably help you. On most vehicles this sensor in near where the top radiator hose goes into engine. There are 2 temp sensors--hte one with one wire usually supplies the dash gauge or lamp, the one with two wires is for the ECU.

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.

Trouble code p0118 for a 1999 ford escort se , engine coolant temperature circuit high input


This may caused by bad connection at the sensor, short in the voltage feed between the sensor and the PCM, bad PCM, open in the ground circuit between the ECT sensor and the PCM, bad temperature sensor.

Needle on temp gauge stays on hot


if the temperature gauge never moves its probably just the coolant temperature sender. Replace that. but i honestly recommend buying a new temperature gauge with more accurate readings. they arent very pricey and they are easy to install

Does anyone know where the sensor is located on the zetec 2.0 engine that regulates the temperature guage?


The sensor you're looking for is called the ECT Sensor(Engine Coolant Temperature). It is located on the left hand side of the engine(left hand is closest to bumper/right hand is closest to firewall) closer to the back(driver side of vehicle).

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.

Coolant wiring


Ensure you are checking the right sensor.
The coolant level sensor is usually located in the coolant resevoir. It generally performs a hi/lo monitor switch function.
The coolant temperature sensor is usually located on the motor (cylinder head or thereabouts). It is a variable resistor dependant on coolant temperature.
As a quick check to identify the sensor, with engine running, short the sensor to ground. If it's the temp gauge sensor the gauge will go max high. Open circuit connection = temp low.
