Make sure you allow your engine is cool to avoid any injury.

First follow your top radiator hose to the thermostat housing. Located on that houseing should be what looks like a wire going into a bolt. Using a open end wrench (usually a 18-22 mm) unscrew the whole sensor from the thermostat housing (expect some coolant to spill out). Next there should be 2 little tabs holding the wires to the sensor. using a small flat head screwdriver, carfully pry the two tabs and detatch the wiring connector from the sensor. put back together the same way you took it off. Next detatch the negative battery cable for 15 minutes to allow the ECU to reset. you are gonna have to reset your preset radio stations, that should solve any problem you may have. If you have trouble figuring out what to look for on the thermostat houseing, go into an advanced auto parts store and ask them to pull a picture of what it looks like, so you have a general picture of what it looks like. on the durango's you have about 7 other of these sesor's all around the vehicle so try not to get confused with the other sensor's.

2001 chevy malibu coolant temp sensor isnt working stuck at cold heater is hot and cooling fans are always on


You did not change the coolant temp sw. you change the ETC which sends a signal to the cpu. It looks just like the temp sw. Look on the driver side head and I believe you will see another one there or look the engine over for another sw just like the one you changed. Not sure what size engine you are asking about.

The temp sensor for your transmission is bad. It is inside the transmission.(Not an external sensor). Can be changed without changing other components. Mine did the same thing. Ford Dealer changed it out.

How did you determine bad coil? was it not sparking period? I ask because coils rarely if ever go bad... What is the fuel pressure? Are the injectors firing? Spark plugs fouled?

Fan operates when coolant temp reaches 226 deg.F and shuts off at 219eg.F
fan is controlled by the PCM infuts from Eng. coolent temp. sensor & Intake air temp. sensor
the yellow wire is the 5V reference and the black wire the is the PCM ground sensor
make sure your not using teflon tape on the threads of the temp sensor.
it sounds like the PCM wont turn it on. check the harness for continuity between temp. sensor and PCM harness

On a cold start my 2002 estate 2.4 gdi missfires.


Since you vehicle is 7 years old. The temperature is due for a change.

the temp sensor give the exact engine block temperature information to the computer (ECU).

An old sensor or sensor giving incorrect temp to the ECU will cause this problem.

The correct term is call close loop. When the engine at start up the computer will only count on the temp sensor to report temp.

When temp is reaching 195F,the mode change to open loop. All sensors comes into play and at the point the fuel inject will scale down for the warm up state.

Running rich condition can be cause by an old temp. sensor.

Change the sensor and the RICH condition after warm up will go away.

Temp Sensor


The temp sensor known as the engine coolant temp. sensor tells the computer if the engine is overheating and so forth and tells the injectors how much fuel to give the engine. The temp. sending unit is what controls what your guage reads. It sounds like you need the temp. sending unit. It located near the thermostat housing with a single pole connector.
