REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


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




NOTE The engine coolant temperature sensor is located on the intake manifold water jacket or near the thermostat housing. On the 4.6L engine, the coolant temperature sensor is located on the rear cylinder head, at the cruise control servo bracket. It is necessary to drain coolant from the cooling system to a level below the sensor, prior to sensor removal.



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the coolant level below the height of the ECT and recycle the engine coolant.
  3. Detach the electrical connector at the sensor.
  4. Remove any obstruction to access the ECT.
    1. On the Catera, this would include removing the intake plenum and the intake bridge.

  5. Using a deep well socket, remove the sensor.

To install:
  1. Coat the threads of the new sensor and install it in the engine. Tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  2. Install the electrical connector.
  3. Refill the system with coolant.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Why does the temperature gauge on my 1995 Chevy K2500, 5.7L read 150 degrees ?


If you replaced the SENSOR and not the gauge SENDER, there's your answer.

The SENSOR sends the computer (ECM, PCM, ECU, etc.) the engine temp so it can make the adjustments to the fuel, timing etc.

The gauge SENDER makes the gauge read what temperature the engine coolant is.

Hope the helps.

Why replace the radiator it's just a bad sensor. Get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle look up the water level sensor testing and replacement steps. The sensor probably cost around $30 and I doubt if it takes more than 30 minutes to replace.

What is an ETC sensor?


The sensor he is referring to is an engine coolant temperature sensor.
This sensor tell the computer the temperature of the coolant so the computer knows the correct amount of fuel to deliver for the operating temperature of the engine.
When the sensor fails, you will likely experience abnormal idle/performance while the engine is cold at startup, as well as increased fuel consumption sometimes to the extent of black, fuel rich exhaust smoke.
The sensor is located on the water neck/thermostat housing.

If you have a Northstar Engine, sorry to tell you buddy... Either HeadGasket blown, or pulled Headbolts.... Now cadillac repairs these engines for around 3000$ atleast in my area.... You can have a Local mechanic do it, but the headbolts must be Time-Serted http://www.timesert.com/html/gm.html
