OK, I have a Mitsubuishi Montero LTD (made in Japan - March 2000). I can't seem to locate a coolant temperature sensor that installs to Dealership it also had the same problem. The threads on the new sensors appear to be a slight bit mor coarse than the original sensor. What can I do about this installation/fit problem?

Are you absolutely sure you are replacing the correct sensor? IBoth the 3.5L engine and the 3.0L engine have 2 coolant sensors. One is for the temperature gauge and the other is for the computer. The one for the computer is located in the center front of the engine and the one for the gauge is located on the right side of the engine. Also make sure that the dealer is slling you the correct one. You may be asking for the computer sensor and they may be selling you the gauge sensor, etc.

HI I HAVE A 2002 NISSAN MARCH LOOKING FOR THE RADIATOR COOLANT FAN SENDER UNIT SWITCH PLEASE HELP


I don't know what a March is, not sold in the US under that name. But I would suspect on that newer a model, the ecu turns the fan on when the Coolant Temperature Sensor on the engine registers a hot coolant temperature which requires the fan for extra cooling.

On older model Nissans (like my '87 Sentra) there is a switch about half way down on the radiator (look for a 2 wire connector to it). When the coolant temperature reaches 192 degrees F., the thermistor contacts close, and the fan relay turns the fan on. When the temperature drops below 181 degrees F., the contacts open and the fan stops running.

Location of engine coolant temperature sensor


Automobiles: 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 4-cylinder 2.0L MFI DOHC

NOTE
The "left" side of the engine is the driver's side.

The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is a thermistor (a device which changes resistance or voltage as temperature changes). The sensor detects the temperature of engine coolant and provides a corresponding signal to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module - aka "the car's computer").

The ECT sensor is mounted in the following locations (small Ford engines):

1.8L engines: in the cylinder head
1.9L engines: threaded into the heater hose inlet pipe
2.0L engines: at the left rear of the engine

2.0L Zetec Engine

(1) Partially drain the engine cooling system using a clean container. If coolant is in good condition, retain for reuse.
(2) Disconnect the battery ground cable.
(3) Disconnect the electrical wiring connector from the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
(4) Remove the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.


12_5_2011_5_38_05_pm.jpg

Fig. 1 Escort ZX2 ECT sensor - The retaining clip is removed (at the solid arrow). Withdraw ECT sensor by gently wiggling/pulling in the direction of the dashed arrow.

To install:

NOTE
Coat the ECT sensor O-ring with clean coolant prior to installation.

(1) Replace the retaining clip and the ECT sensor.
(2) Connect the electrical wiring connector from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor.
(3) Connect the battery ground cable.
(4) Refill the engine cooling system. An inexpensive plastic "Radiator Funnel" will help with this task.

I NEED A RADIO CODE FOR MITSBUSHI MONTERO. YEAR 2000. THE SERIAL NO IS 99D14459. THE MODEL NO IS MR490090. THE REF NO IS CQ-JB9911AB. THE LABEL NO IS YEFMO1883A. IT'S MANUFACTURED BY MATSUSHITA...


Your code is 4433
Use preset 1 to set digit 1, preset 2 to set digit 2, etc
Once the code displayed is correct, push your unlock button to unlock the radio.
The unlock button varies by model, but is always either AM/FM, CD, or TAPE.
There is no penalty for pushing the wrong unlock button as long as your code is correct.

If you have locked out the radio from failed code attempts (radio reads "OFF", you will need to leave the key in the ACCESSORY position with the radio displaying OFF for approximately 1 hour. After which time the radio will revert to CODE and you can enter your code then.
