Disappointing

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor:

Installed new sensor while doing a water pump install on a Ford F350. Coolant gauge would not register. Created a short in the harness to test gauge, and it passed. Took old sensor off old water pump, installed onto new water pump and all works properly.

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor:

      This is a sending unit and not the sensor for the 1999 Ford Explorer 4.0 (X) vin. If your gauge is not working, you need the sending unit. I was given this under the assumption it was a temperature sensor when in fact it is the sending unit. The sending unit is the cheaper of the two BWD makes if you need to distinguish what is a sensor or a sending unit. It wasted a lot of my time and effort after it didn't work.So don't make the mistake I had because it is listed incorrectly.

          I read the reviews online so I went to the store in person to talk to the manager. He has always been very helpful and he showed me the part which was identical to the one I removed from my 4cyl Ranger. I took it home and replaced it, connected the sensor and it works. All I know is the old one quit and this one fixed the problem. Easy to change with a 3/4 deep socket.

          This part isn't compatible with my 1997 Ford Explorer. The 1st one was a non working part, the second one didn't work either. The 3rd one I got somewhere else and it worked fine. Don't waste your time or money. Chances are, it won't work for your vehicle, or will be a faulty part.

              This part is incompatable with my 97 f150 4.2, I installed the part and, it did not work, I then bought the part from a competitor for ([$]) half the price you charged, the part also had lock-tite inbeded in the tread to insure a tight fit, yours did not, after installing the part, it worked perfectly with no leaks. The part I bought from you guys was not the exact to the part I replaced, the part I bought form your competitor was identical to the oe part I replaced.

                  A:

                  Hi Sackman, glad to assist you! The Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor is located either in the heater supply tube at the rear of the engine, or in the lower intake manifold. To get more specific information on the location of this part I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location and also explain how to install, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle. The exact repair manual part number for your vehicle is 36094.

                  I'm happy to help, Speedy! BWD does not provide a resistance range for this BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor (Part No. WT3058P). At 20 degrees C, BWD indicates that this sensor has a resistance of 28,500 Ohms to 31,500 Ohms.

              • Q:

                If the fan on my 1996 Thunderbird does not come on, do I need a coolant temperature sensor or an air sensor?
                Asked on 1/27/2014 by Beulah from Elk Creek, VA

                1 answer

                • CUSTOMER CARE

                  A:

                  Hi Beulah, glad to assist you! The cooling fan on your Ford Thunderbird runs on relays. There is no individual cooling fan relay. It is controlled by a master relay. The master relay is called the CCRM and is located in front of the engine bay, between the air filter and the front passenger light, it has a wiring harness that is screwed into the module. This relay controls the fan, fuel pump and A/C clutch if I am not mistaken. The cooling fan is controlled during engine operation by Constant Control Relay Module (CCRM) and Powertrain Control Module (PCM). These controls cause the fan to run at low speed when engine temperature reaches approximately 222°F, or when A/C is ON and vehicle does not provide enough air flow. Fan will continue to run until engine temperature drops to approximately 214°F. The fan will change to high speed when fan has been operating at low speed, but engine temperature is still above 228°F, and stops running when engine temperature drops to approximately 224°F. The cooling fan does not cycle with the A/C. However, I would suggest you to get assistance from a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not solve or be the problem.

                  Great question Deb, the bad coolant temperature sensor could cause rich running engine, increased vehicle emissions, and engine shut down. I would suggest you to take your vehicle and thoroughly checked with a certified local mechanic before buying the parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                  Hi ACE, the coolant temperature sensor in an automobile is responsible for relaying engine engine temperature by measuring the temperature of engine coolant to the car's on-board computer. When this sensor malfunctions the symptoms range from poor engine performance to diminished fuel economy and engine shutdown. The basic signs are rich running engine, increased vehicle emissions and engine shutdown. I would suggest you to take your vehicle and thoroughly checked with a certified local mechanic before buying the parts that may/may not solve the problem.
