Is the cylnder head temp sensor and the cooliant temp sensor the same thing on a 2004 Lincoln ls 6 cyndler? Can't find the cooliant temp sensor everything redirects to cylnder head temp sensor even at...


cylinder head temp sensor measures the temp of the cylinder head metal itself and the coolant sensor measures the temp of the coolant only. the coolant sensor is mounted in the coolant and the head sensor is mounted only in the metal of the head and not into anything else. check with a dealer.

2000 bettle 1.9L turbo will only start if you unplug coolant temp sensor


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you replace the coolant temp sensor. Looks like it's faulty and grounding the circuit. The car's computer can detect it that's why it won't start but once you disconnect it, it will for the coolant sensor is bypassed.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Temp gauge off charts


Are you mistaking the engine temp sensor for the engine temp sending unit? The temp sensor is for the fuel injection system and the temp sending unit is for the gauge. If you asked for a sensor thats what they sold you. You need to ask for a sending unit.

Cooling fan wont work


The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.

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.
