Usually temp sensors are screwed in with two wires attached.
Just remove by turning the sensor clockwise with the harness wires disconnected. Simple procedure.

1999 Merc Grand Marquis Thermostat Sensor port blew out of intake manifold. Can it be replaced?


Just get the next size threaded sensor to screw into the port and wrap it with thread tape first. If you can't find one, you'll have to rethread the port and put in a "helicoil" thread replacement and seal it well when installed.

1986 cj7 with 1996 inline6 motor water temp.has 2 wires 1986 has 1 wire please help


The 96 uses a temp sensor for the computer to inform it of the temperature. This 2 wire sensor does not control the temp guage. The 86 has a single wire sensor because it controls the guage only

My 3.4 Camaro isn't getting fuel through the injectors. I can unplug the intake air temp sensor and it will start, but won't idle or accelerate. Replaced the air temp sensor and map sensor but still won't...


If it starts and you can 'nurse' it with the throttle without the air temp sensor (probably the air mass meter, actually) then you are getting fuel. It's most likely the air mass meter.

If your car is 1996 and newer it's held in with two torx screws (older cars use two phillips screws). Remove them, pull the meter out carefully and spray Mass Air Flow sensor cleaner (not gasoline or other sprays) until the dark fuzz is gone, then gently reinstall. If that doesn't work (and you're sure that part is the problem) then replacement is needed.
This is a cheap method to try first though.

Where do I locate the collant temp senor that connects to computer system. Radiator fans not coming on and code indicates low coolant temp, but dash temp gage reads actual temp


Hi standing in front of the car looking at the engine it's on the top right side of the engine,next to the top radiator hose inlet.




3.4L Engine



NOTE Use care when handling the coolant sensor. Damage to the coolant sensor will affect the operation of the fuel control system.

  1. Drain the coolant below the level of the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.
  2. Disconnect the sensor electrical connector.
  3. Carefully remove the ECT sensor.

To install:


NOTE Replacement components must be the correct part number for the application. Components requiring the use of the thread locking compound, lubricants, corrosion inhibitors, or sealants are identified in the service procedure. Some replacement components may come with these coatings already applied. Do not use these coatings on components unless specified. These coatings can affect the final torque, which may affect the operation of the component. Use the correct torque specification when installing components in order to avoid damage.


NOTE Use care when handling the coolant sensor. Damage to the coolant sensor will affect the operation of the fuel control system.

  1. Coat the threads with sealer P/N 9985253 or equivalent.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  2. Install the ECT sensor and tighten the sensor to 15 lb-ft (20 Nm).
  3. Connect the ECT sensor electrical connector.
  4. Refill the cooling system

TEMP GAUGE GOES UP AND DOWN. HAS NEVER DONE THIS IN 3YEARS ON MY 1996 DODGE AVENGER


try replacing thermostat, or possibly temp. sensor (should be near thermostat- threaded into block- prob 1 wire). most likely failing thermostat! make sure you get the correct replacement for it! some have different temp. ranges. 'opening' temp. should be stamped on rim of thermostat.
good luck!

How do i change cylinder head sensor and where is it located


if you know engine fairly well the sensor should be pretty easy to spot it will be coming out of the cylinder head and have a wire attached to it although I haven't done much work on those models I wasn't aware they had that type of sensor are you sure your not looking for the temp sending unit? if so you will need to look on the intake manifold or near the water pump either way you may consider buying the sensor first then matching it with the wire/wires coming into it then simply unplug that sensor and unscrew (standard threads) make sure to properly seal the threads on the new one tighten to spec (be careful not to over tighten this component more than likely will thread into aluminum threads) better to be to loose and have to be tightened again than to have to replace a major component

My 3.1 Monte wont start.


These sensors are sensitive, no way should they be hot wired like that,when any sensor goes bad it needs replacing. you probably blew something else. My advise, would be, to take it to a garage and have it tested, starting with the computor. good luck.
