1994 cutlass Ciera... I just swapped engines 3.1 from a 96 to a 94...everything went great, except the temperature gage doesn't work. I see in the 94 there is a sending unit on the back head just...


Your 94 engine has separate coolant temp sensor and gauge sender. The 96 engine incorporates both in the engine coolant temp sensor. The coolant temp sensor is near the t-stat, below the throttle body. Check to see how many wires are in this plug. If it only has two, you may be able to use the plug from the 96 motor and wire it into the wire where the original sensor was. You should be able to just color match. Not sure if you can get away with this but the 96 plug should have a third wire, and it's woth a try.

Where is the coolant temperature sensor located on a 96 legacy


The sensor is usually located on the thermostat housing cap. Follow the top radiator hose to the engine. You will see a couple of wires coming from the sensor. That's your temp. sending unit.

Where is the oxygen sensor located on a lincoln town car 96


My 96 has 4 cat converters, 2 (upstream and down stream) on each side. There are 2 oxygen sensors on each side, before upstream converter and after upstream converter. But make sure they are bad before you replace them (4 of them will cost you about $200), and my 1996 with 175K has 3 original still running. Other sensors (air flow, coolant temp) might be the problem as well.

I have a Cadillac 2000 STS with the V8 Northstar engine. Can you help me locate the water temperature/coolant sensor. I am trying to get thru why it is boiling over the resevoir box and into the engine...


This could be a faulty surge tank cap, common problem.
The cap is designed to hold 16 psi pressure,if it fails, the coolant will escape.
The cap only costs a few dollars so it's worth changing it to see if this solves your problem.

The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor is located on the Left hand rear corner of the engine, below the exhaust gas recirculation valve.

Also, the fans don't come on until the temp reaches around 225 degrees.
