The temperature sensor on the 2006 sedona, is it located at the front of the engine block. I have foound what looks like it but i want to be sure before rmoving it...

Temp sensor is usually positioned near the top of the engine in the cylinder head or one of the housings bolted to the head. I have never seen one in any part of the engine block.

Petrol engines often have a knock sensor screwed into the block...

If my thermostat sensor is faulty, how can I verify that is the issue? Is that part expensive?

if the thermostat is faulty it will show up as two things
the car will overheat within 5 minutes of start up (10 minutes max) as it will be stuck closed and prevent coolant circulation
and second it will be stuck open which will be seen as taking a long time to reach normal operating temp which will be a long time if ever in cold weather and very low ambient temperatures
you call it as a thermostat sensor where it is a coolant temperature sensor which is a different unit
the sensor in this case reads the engine coolant temp and reports to the ECM so that correct air /fuel ratio can be maintained under all conditions
It also reports that the coolant temperature is too high and so the ECM turns on the fan/s to cool the radiator
They cost from around $20.00 to $80.00 ud depending on make of car , generic or genuine

How to change engine cooling sensor on 2007 ford fusion

To begin, this year fusion had some issues with overheating problems which seem to be solved by 'bleeding' the coolant system of all air. Historically, an air bubble will become superheated and cause the temp needle on the dash to rise suddenly. This is often mis-diagnosed as a bad sensor, so initially be sure that the system is free of any air and is completely filled with coolant. If you do find that this does not solve the problem, and you determine that a sensor replacement is called for, it is always helpful to provide the engine size. The most popular engine was the 2.3 liter, 4 cylinder. If that is your motor, then it has two temp sensors. One is the cylinder head temp sensor and the other being the coolant temp sensor. If you have trouble code P0128, then this could be a result of a stuck thermostat, bad connection to the sensor or a bad sensor as you have determined. The reason I am providing all of this information is that you should eliminate other simple problems before replacing sensors. The temp sensor is located as an attachment to the water outlet adapter on the lower radiator hose. It is identified as part #19 in the attached diagram. and is a threaded component. It sells for about $20. A pic of the part can be seen here: Again, I am guessing as to your motor size. Other sizes will have different applications. Good Luck!

Outside temperature stuck at 50 degrees

the problem is your outside air temp sensor located on the front left corner of the radiator at the top. the sensor can be bought at your local parts store (napa, car quest, auto zone) for approx 8-10 bucks. 5 min replacement.

What does a p1296 code mean

1. Buy temp sensor and O ring. (if you are REALLY cheap I have seen these on E-Bay motors for like $4 - my stealership wants about $9).

2. Recommended while at the dub parts counter get some g12 coolant - just in case you loose alot - you shouldn't, but it would **** having to drive with low coolant in your bug to go get some. (done properly you will lose VERY little - if you are like me - see below - get the g12)

3. On the 2.0 engine the sensor is located on the coolant line coming from the top of the radiator and runs along the right (driver's side) of the engine. On the driver's side of the engine this hose connects to a "junction box" which has the sensor on top and facing the interior of the bug (4 wires).

4. If your engine has been cool for atleast an hour, remove the clip below the sensor by pulling it towards you.

5. Remove the sensor by pulling it away from the hose.
(note: I am a ******* and let the engine sit for only ~15 minutes...coolant shot out of the hose in a big blast when I removed the sensor - VERY VERY luckly none got in my mouth or eyes - just all over my hands - don't be a ******* - wait ATLEAST an hour or so)

6. Seat new O-ring on new sensor and make sure it is all the way to the top of the metal part of the sensor.

7. Insert NEW sensor in hose and press firmly downward so it sits in the hole snugly. Replace plastic clip below sensor on coolant hose.

8. Unplug 4 pin connector from old sensor and plug into new sensor - if the pins line up you should hear a tiny click as it locks into place - DON'T force it.

I have a problem with my truck starting, chevy 1990 throttle body type 2 top injectors. It takes several cranks to start if it even starts at all without flooding the engine. _ having this problem before I...

I had the same problem with my 1990 chevy 1500 (350) replaced the plugs and wires no luck. I replaced the fuel pressure regulator, still no luck. So i called my mechanic he said it would either be the map sensore or the coolant temp sensor. I didnt figure the coolant temp sensor would cause my truck to flood but it was a 17 dollar part so i gave it a shot, took 10 seconds to switch it out with a 19mil deep socket. Truck fired up and ran like a top no more flooding. =)

Volkswagen trouble codes i cant find in the book any ideas? the code says p1296

t's a cooling system malfunction code. Either the car took too long to reach operating temp (like a stuck thermostat) or is getting bad readings from the temp sensor. It's the same unit as for the gauge but a different part sends a signal to the ECM, so the gauge ma read fine.It means more than likely your Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) is faulty and reading an incorrect temp.
As noted by a few above, replace with the new "green top" version of the sensor, clear the code, and you should be set.
You shouldn't need anything else unless the thermostat is sticking open...
