Coolant sensor replacement --- Where is it?

I want to replace the coolant sensor. I can't find the one on the engine that screws into something with the other end that plugs into something else. Can anyone tell me where the sensor is? I would also like to know where I can find a manual for my '96 Volvo 960. Even something online to look at whenever I have an issue like this one.

Thanks.

How can I fix a temp coolant sensor in my honda crv 2004


The temperature coolant sensor in your car is a replaceable part that cannot be repaired.
This part screws into your engine block.
You can buy a replacement on Amazon or on e-bay.
God bless your efforts.

Where is coolant sensor located?


The coolant sensor will look something like the image below. Usually, it is at the front of the engine, screwed into the block. Look for a brass portion screwed into the block

It will have -usually - one or two wires connected to it.

How to replace coolant sensor


Hello and thank you for using Fixya. To replace the coolant sensor in your 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe, follow these steps below:

Find the coolant temperature sensor in the engine block on the driver side of the engine compartment. It is screwed into the block and has a wire lead running to the engine wiring harness. Once you locate the sensor, disconnect the wire lead going to the sensor with an open end box end wrench. Inspect the wire lead for melted insulation and discolored insulation. Either condition will require you to replace the wire lead. Make sure the engine has cooled enough to prevent burn injury. Use the appropriate socket and ratchet or open end box end wrench to loosen the temperature sensor. Turn the ratchet or wrench counter clockwise until the sensor is loose enough to turn by hand. Unscrew the sensor and remove from the engine block.Check the temperature sensor for corrosion and the wire lead for damage. Replace the sensor and reconnect the wire lead. Start the engine and allow it to heat up to operating temperature. The cooling fan should come on automatically as the engine temperature increases.Use a gloved hand to squeeze the input hose for pressure. If pressure exists, it means that the coolant is flowing to maintain the engine operating temperature. Now check your engine temperature sensor or warning light to see if it is reading properly.

Where is ect sensor located on 2006 monte carlo 3.5 engine


The ECT (Engine Coolant Temp sensor) should be located by the coolant thermostat housing or where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. It screws in with a plug or small/short wire harness attached to it. -------------------------------- To replace ect sensor:---
  1. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  2. Remove the intake manifold cover, if necessary.
  3. Remove the exhaust crossover.
  4. Disconnect the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical connector.
  5. Remove the ECT sensor.

How to repalce a knock sensor on my 2004 gmc yukon


Hi welcom to fixya. A defective knock sensor may cause engine detonation or reduced spark advance and fuel economy. When a knock sensor is removed and replaced, the sensor must be tightened to its specified torque. If the knock sensor is installed tighter than it should be, it may become too sensitive and provide an excessively high voltage signal, resulting in more spark ****** than required. When the knock sensor is installed looser than it should be, the knock sensor signal will be lower than normal, resulting in engine detonation.
To replace the knock sensor:
  • Disconnect the knock sensor wiring connector.
  • Then, unscrew the sensor.
  • Remove the knock sensor.
  • Reverse the procedures to install the part.
  • 15 ft.lbs.torque
  • hope this helps.Thank You for using fixya..iluv2fish.. Ray..

Getting a PO125 code in my 98 Camry (4cyl), already replaced the Spark plug wires and fuel filter, any ideas?


P0125 Insufficient Coolant Temperature for Closed Loop Fuel Control
Replace your coolant temp sensor.Be sure to double check your coolant level and does the engine reach an operating temp(about halfway on the guage)in a normal time?! If it does, the temp sensor for the computer needs to be replaced.

Engine coolant light turns on but no aparant reasons why engine coolant level ok rad was flushed 2 months ago coolant temp gauge doesnt go past half way hot and cold air availabe in the cab


the coolant level sensor is malfunctioning. this should be either on the resevoir or screwed into the side of the radiator. inspect to see if there is one in the resevoir. if so, disconnect it and turn the vehicle on to see if the light goes out. if so replace it. if it is in the radiator, replace it. ther eare no "fixes" for these items.
