There are 2 locations.

First one is next to thermostat housing or where your upper radiator hose connects to the intake.

The second is behind the driver side head. A word of warning i spent hours on one of my f150s argueing with the dealer and parts houses telling me that they all have both. In the end at ford they finally conceded that in fact they all dont have both. The one behind the head is very weak compared to 99% of the sensors you put in. Do not over tighten this sensor you will shear the top right off of it and will be out looking for another.

    1.is it capped off or does a hose run frm it? 2.would an ti freeze come out of it if it was to get hot?

  • superponty Mar 26, 2011

    The first type screws in to the housing to the left of the hose and when its removed coolant will come out. It can leak if the housing of the sensor is loose or broken.

    The second type does not sit in a water jacket so no coolant will leak from it.

Location of temperature sensor that operates the temperature gauge


Follow the upper rad hose to the thermostat housing. It will be there. There are two, one is the ECT (engine coolant temperature SENSOR) and the other is the temperature SENDING UNIT (input for temp. gauge ONLY). f83e91b9-4b48-476a-8c50-10735b376bf1.png

P0118


As with all engine codes there is no one solution fits all, here is the info on the code from the diagnostic material.
P0118 - Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit High Input
Possible causes - Low engine coolant level
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor harness is open or shorted
- Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor electrical circuit poor connection
- Faulty Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor
- Faulty engine coolant thermostat P0118 Description The Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor is used to detect the engine coolant temperature. The sensor modifies a voltage signal from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The modified signal returns to the ECM as the engine coolant temperature input. The sensor uses a thermistor which is sensitive to the change in temperature. The electrical resistance of the thermistor decreases as temperature increases.

Change ECTsensor on a 2001 f150 5.4L triton


You have 2 seperate engine temp sensors....
1) coolant temperature sensor, which is located next to the water outlet on top of the engien where the upper radiator hose connects. This coolant temp signal is used by the powertrain control module to control such things as fuel mixture, transmission shift points, and cooling fan operation when the engine is hot. If this sensor has failed in such a way that the PCM thinks that the engine is cold, it should also be running very rich (black smoke from the tail pipe, rough idle, very poor fuel economy).
2)Cylinder Head Temperature sensor..You probably cannot see this one, as it is located on the head underneath the intake manifold. You have to Remove the intake manifold to get to this part...Sometimes you can get by just changing the thermostat ...If it is faulty it will show as a sensor..
Anywho they usually twist out ond in..Always make sure you diconnect the battery while working with electronics....
If it is giving a P0125 code this is usually caused by a thermostat that is worn out..

Where is the engine coolant sensor located on a 2000 ford f150 V8 4.6 L?


please rate as fixya if this helps

SECTION 303-14: Electronic Engine Controls 2000 F-150 Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor — 4.6L and 5.4L Removal and Installation
  1. Remove the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.
    1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
    1. Remove the ECT sensor.
ae8a8e7.gif The ECT sensor:
  • sends the PCM a signal indicating engine temperature.
  • resistance decreases as coolant temperature increases.
The ECT measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The sensor is threaded into an engine coolant passage.

ECT - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor

The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor (Figure 27) is a thermistor device in which resistance changes with temperature. The electrical resistance of a thermistor decreases as the temperature increases, and increases as the temperature decreases. The varying resistance affects the voltage drop across the sensor terminals and provides electrical signals to the PCM corresponding to temperature.
Thermistor-type sensors are considered passive sensors. A passive sensor is connected to a voltage divider network so that varying the resistance of the passive sensor causes a variation in total current flow.
Voltage that is dropped across a fixed resistor in a series with the sensor resistor determines the voltage signal at the PCM. This voltage signal is equal to the reference voltage minus the voltage drop across the fixed resistor.
The ECT measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The sensor is threaded into an engine coolant passage. The ECT sensor is similar in construction to the IAT sensor.
