I have a 351 but they are common sensors and should be located same places. ATC is on the side or bottom of the air intake filter box. The CTS should be located on the goose-neck where your Thermostat is housed; this is comming off the intake mannafold and into the radiator.

COOLANT SENSOR..or cts,,The CTS is located near the thermostat housing and is identified by a two-way gray connector. The temp sending unit (the one that operates the dash gauge) is located next to it and has a single brown connector. Good Luck!

Wont start when cold out


If your vehicle is fuel injected the problem you describe could be result of a few different things: 1) Check your Idle Air Control (IAC) sensor/motor. This sensor is located on your vehicles, throttle body. The purpose of this sensor is to control the car's idle under various operating conditions including ambiant temperature. In order for it to function correctly, the internal components must be clean (meaning, little or no carbon build up) and it must be undamaged. Sometimes the IAC can be cleaned; however, if this cleaning procedure is not properly done, the IAC can become damaged. This sensor is also sometimes called the "Cold Start" sensor. A new IAC will cost $50-$100. 2) Check you Coolant Temperature sensor. This senso is located on the top of your engine and is screwed into your intake manifold. When this fails your car will experience starting problems when cold outside. A new Coolant Temp sensor will cost about $100. Take a look at two three solutions first. My guess is your IAC needs to be cleaned or replaced. Good Luck!

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks!

I know some old fuel injected systems will dump fuel because of the coolant temp sensor should be located on lower intake in the front. Also check the timing.

Coolant sensor on a saturn, can you show location?


well there are 2 coolant sensors,,,one is the coolant level sensor which is internal to the coolant resivor,,but i think you are talking about the infamous engine coolant temp sensor,,,,ok pop your hood you will see the cam cover that says saturn on it,,,,thats the top of the engine,,,ok,,,then on the lower right side of that you will see the upper radiator hose,,,and the EGR valve,,,,now inbetween the egr valve and upper rad hose is where the coolant temp sensor is,, its just below them,,there is a little wiring harness with a yellow and a black wire going to it,,,,it actually screws into the lower side of the cylinder head,,,,just squeze the wiring connector at the 2 thicker spots and pull it straight off then take the coolant cap off the resivor,,to relases pressure and put it back on,providing the car is not hot,,,,the sensor is actually a 13mm or 14mm socket that removes the sensor,,,,,they usually crack and leak into the harness so check the harness for corrosion,,,,be like green/blue on terminals,,if so youre gonna have to wire in a new connector,,,,no big deal ,, normal s-series issue,,,do not use aftermarket junk like autozone as these do not read correctly from the start youre gonna have to shell out the money at the saturn dealer for the good stuff ,,like $18 for the sensoe and $37 for the connector but it comes with the 2 **** connectors you need to wire it in,,,so if you remove the sensor just put the new one in snug but dont break it off,,,,top off coolant,,,,cut the 2 wires off the old connector as close to the end as possilbe. so you retain as much wire as you can,,,,,it doesnt matter which wire goes on what side but i lke to keep it the way it was the black wire on the right and the yellow on the left,,use the **** connectors,then heat shrink them and wrap them with electrical tape and youre done

My problem is my truck is blowing black smoke out the tail pipe and i dont know why i changed 3 ot sensors and a map air flow it is still doing it?


have you checked the coolant temp sensor? not the sensor for the gauge . the coolant temp sensor for the fuel injection. this sensor when cold tells your fuel injection system to add more fuel. in other words it acts like a choke in a carb. when this sensor goes bad it can send a signal constantly telling your computer the motor is cold therefor it needs alot more fuel than it realy does. also that sensor is tied into the 02,s. hope this helps.

Sensor Locations.


The Air Temperature Sensor is built into the Mass Air Flow Meter. It is located on the air intake tube, between the air filter box and the metal intake manifold, held on with 2 screws.

The Coolant Temp Sensor is located on the back side of the engine (closest to the firewall), closer to the driver side of the engine. It is close below the Csm Position Sensor, that is located on the cylinder head.

If you had problems with either, the DTC would be P-0115 for the CTS and P-0110 for the ATS.
Note that the ATS cannot be serviced alone, you would need to replace the MAF assembly.
Hope this helps
