Well im not sure for this particular vehicle, i will try to find out for you. on some vehicles it is a part of the computer, and on some it is in the intake area. Basically it senses when the intake air temp is cold or hot and regulates fuel / air mixture accordingly... I will do some digging around tonight and see if i can find a picture of what it looks like and where it is on this particular vehicle

Nissan Pathfinder will not start when engine is luke warm. Please read through the details as the Fixya character counter sucks/


Please don't hurt more walls! Just kidding..what a problem. If you have the correct sensor installed and it is working correctly (check with multimeter for change in resistance when cold, warm, hot) then the signal getting to the computer must be getting scrambled in some way. Check the wire connection where you clip it onto the sensor. Use a multi meter and check for continuity there and back further along the wire.
if you can't trace the wire all the way to the computer, you may have to do a bodge job..rig a wire into the cab with an on off switch.
Only to be used when the engine is warm..flick switch to off, start truck, flick switch back to reengage sensor.......
think of it as an unusual theft deterrent !

Alero Problems car starts, but dies at running temp. then after 20 mins. it will restart, until running temp again, then dies. have changed, cam, crank, & map sensors, also ign. model, & pass lock assy....


Seems to me that I've run across this problem 3 or 4 times over the years on different cars. Problem usually comes down to either fuel system, electrical system (including sensors), or the coolant system (including sensors). I ran into this most recently on an '89 Escort. Wound up replacing fuel pump relay, ignition relay, TPS sensor, ignition module, coolant temp switch, coolant pump (and timing belt while I was in there). Fixed a couple of engine grounds and a couple of misc things. Point is that there is probably more than one item at fault.

The coolant fan stopped running


could be the fan motor or the temp switch connect the fan to the batt directly to test the motor if that works then go to the parts store and ask for the temp switch

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.

I HAVE A 1998 FORD EXPLORE 4.0 SOHC CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON CODE PO117 COOLANT TEMP SENSOR 1 CIRCUIT LOW INPUT REPLACE IT AND IT CAME BACK ON SAME THING REPLACE IT AGAIN AND IT CAME BACK ON AGAIN WHAT...


When you replaced the part you needed to kill the old code by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes.

The cold start problem could definitely be the result of the coolant temp switch not working. Check whether you are replacing the correct switch. The dash gauge should be a different temperature switch than the switch that runs the computer controls. It is possible that you are putting a new switch into the wrong hole.

The alternative is the wire going from the correct switch is bad to the computer plug in. Check for corroded terminals. The computer needs to know the engine is cold before it goes into the "Cold start" sequence.

I have a 01 ford escort zx2 and it is making a whining noise from under the hood i have replaced the water pump and it still whines and the heater will start off blowing hot air but when you go several...


Remove the serpentine belt and run the engine to see if the whine still exists. If the whine is gone, try moving the pullies by hand to feel what pully is rough or has a lot of play. Your issue with the heat is likely separate from the whine. You have air in the cooling system. With the engine cold, remove the radiator cap. Fill the radiator to the top and run the engine until it gets to operating temp. The level in the radiator will drop, this is when you add more coolant and replace the cap. Make sure your overflow/resivoir bottle is half full with coolant.

No heat ..help installed new heater switch, replaced water pump..replaced coolants, and thermostat......................what else could it be? Nissan 2003 GXE Sentra 1.8 L Engine/...


you could have an air pocket in the cooling system that has to be burped. With a cold engine, park uphill and leave the radiator cap loose. Fill radiator and coolant reservoir. Start engine with cap loose and run at 1500 rpm until temp gauge reads normal. Feel if top radiator return hose from engine to radiator is hot. If yes, coolant is flowing and thermostat is open. If cold, thermostat is not staying closed until engine is hot.

report results.
