          how to replace transmission temp sensor, and transmission speed sensor, on a 1994 dodge ram 1500 slt laramie 5.9 v8 4x4 please

            A:

            With reference to your inquiry on the BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor (Part No. WT3027P), Instruction to replace a Temperature Sensor: Slide the air inlet tube, the tube connected to the passenger’s side of the air cleaner, toward the passenger’s side of the engine compartment to free it from the air cleaner housing, then remove the inlet tube.Loosen the hose clamp securing the air cleaner housing to the top of the throttle body, using a flat-head screwdriver. Find the breather hose, the small rubber vacuum hose, on the rear of the air cleaner housing. Pull the breather hose from the rear of the air cleaner housing. Lift the entire air cleaner housing upward and off the throttle body. Notice that a stud on the intake manifold secures the front of the air cleaner, by inserting into a grommet on the front of the air cleaner housing. Set the air cleaner housing in a secure location.Look under the throttle body bracket, the bracket that comes off the throttle body and secures the accelerator cable, and find the intake air temperature sensor, which is screwed into the intake manifold.Lift upward on the locking tab on the IAT sensor’s wiring harness with your finger or a small flat-head screwdriver and unplug the wiring harness. Remove the IAT sensor from the intake manifold with a ratchet and socket. Thread a new IAT sensor into the intake manifold and tighten it to 20 foot-pounds with a torque wrench and socket. Plug the wiring harness into the IAT sensor. Simultaneously align the large hole in the rear of the air cleaner housing with the inlet on the throttle body, and the grommet on the front of the air cleaner housing with the stud protruding from the intake manifold. Press downward on the air cleaner housing to seat it into place.Tighten the hose clamp that secures the air cleaner housing to the throttle body, using a flat-head screwdriver. Plug the breather hose into its inlet on the air cleaner housing. Slide the air inlet tube onto the inlet on the passenger’s side of the air cleaner housing.
            Instruction to replace a speed sensor: Unplug the speed sensor wiring harness connector. Remove the sensor mounting bolt, using the appropriate socket.Pull the sensor straight out of the extension housing or transfer case. The speed sensor is in the same place as the speedometer pinion gear adapter--do not remove the gear adapter from the transmission when pulling the sensor out.Clean the inside of the pinion gear adapter, using a shop rag. Insert the sensor into its orifice, ensuring that it is fully seated.Tighten the retaining bolt snugly. Do not overtighten the bolt, as you could damage the sensor. Plug in the wiring harness connector. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

            A:

            You may be suffering a small leak in the temperature sensor located in the lower left radiator hose. This sensor uses an O-ring that can shrink and harden with age, allowing small amounts of coolant to ooze when the engine is hot and the radiator is under pressure, but the amount evaporates or blows off, without leaving much of a trace.

            A:

            It can if your sensor is hooked up to your fan. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem.

            A:

            Possibly. Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.
