Beck/Arnley Temperature Sensor

Part No. 158-0154 Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

Used to sense the temperature of the engine at the computer to adjust the fuel mixture. When the computer senses that the engine is cold through the use of the sensor it will increase the on-time of the injector. This enriches the fuel mixture the same way as using the choke. It also uses the sensor to determine when to turn the engine cooling fans on and off. Helps restore the original engine temperature, proper engine idle and proper air fuel mixture.

  • Q:

    Is this sensor mounted in the cylinder head, the water outlet, or the thermostat housing? My 92 Accord has three that look similar. Only difference being the color of the plastic connector. But none of mine are white. One is purple, one green and one black. The black one is mounted on the head and that's the one I need to replace. Thank you.

      Hi Zack, glad to assist you! The temperature sensor in Honda Accord is screwed into the intake manifold below the distributor on the left side of the engine. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

  • Q:

    My 1989 Honda Accord LXI has two sensors like this on the thermostat housing. One provides coolant info to the fuel system and controls the two cooling fans. The second one controls only
    the compressor fan and causing it to run after the engine is
    shut down if the coolant temperature reaches a certain level. Which of these two is this sensor?

      This is a coolant temperature sensor it could cause your fans to not come on. The cooling fan relays could also cause your fans to not come on.

  • Q:

    So the only diffence is the name band and price. Does the BWD coolant temp senor perform less then the Beck/Arnley since the Beck/Arnley has more expense and has more detail about it.

      In my personal opinion, when you have two or more brands of the same type of item, the more expensive one is usually the better quality item.
