Open the hood and look down. follow the upper radiator hose to the engine block. that is the thermostat housing cap. the unit with the wires in it, at the cap, is the sensor. you can get them at the auto parts store. just need a wrench to replace it. hope this helps

Location of coolant temperature sensor on 2003 GMC. I am getting a low coolant message and the jug has some in it.


If you are getting the low coolant message you are looking for the coolant level sensor not the coolant temp sensor. I do believe the sensor is in the jug, is it filled to the full line?

Hello jameli_noman: My name is Roger and I will help you. The radiator has a sensor in it that is supposed to since low coolant. A couple of things can cause a problem. 1. The sensor is working and coolant is low. 2. Coolant sensor is defective. 3. Coolant sensor is contaminated by oil deposits. I would look at #3. If you were low on coolant? The coolant had to of gone somewhere. Look close at the corners of the intake manifold. Where the intake meets the cylinder heads. If you see what looks like a slimy oozy build up and you should see traces of coolant in this mess. You have a intake gasket causing the problem. This leak will let minute amounts of oil into the coolant system. This will cause the sensor to be contaminated. You can disconnect the sensor. But this defeats the early warning of low coolant and engine damage. Should you have any more questions please just ask. I will reply. Please rate the answer as this way I know it was of use. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Coolant level sensor bad warning comes on console


Coolant sensor wiring would be the next place to look. Make sure connector is good, and look for broken wires.

I just bought a 96 mark, message center reads low engine coolant but heat gage remains normal. coolant not low. doesn't seem to hurt anything, just annoying. low coolant sensor location?


Silly question, but have you looked inside the radiator? I asked becuse often coolant is checked by looking inside the coolant overflow reservoir. Sometimes the ovrflow reservoir will look like the coolant is normal, when it's low in the radiator.

Here's a link which will give you more info.

How to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century


The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.
