      A:

      Happy to answer your question Jerry! The engine coolant temperature sensor will be what sends the information to the ECM. The switch is what cycles the fan according to the needs of the engine. To provide the location we would need to know your engine size.

  • Q:

    When I try to turn on the heat on my 99 ford expedition, 5.4L vehicle, I get cold air blowing out through the vents,
    I have replaced the thermostat, replaced the coolant, and also replaced the rear heater core, which I need to, since it was leaking.
    I am not sure if the Intake Air Temp. sensor, or the Engine Coolant Temp. sensor needs to be replaced.

  • Q:

    cann you send me a picture of where the engine coolant temperature sensor is on the engine block for a 1997 ford f150 4.6L
    Asked on 1/21/2013 by racecar driver from McNeil Arkansas

      A:

      Instructions to locate and replace the coolant temperature sensor: 1. Open the hood of the F-150. 2. Inspect the front, center of the engine and locate the rear of the thermostat housing. Find the thermostat housing by following the top radiator hose from the radiator to the block. 3. Place your hand on the sensor that is mounted in the intake manifold, just behind the thermostat housing. The sensor has a round plug, which has wires coming from the wiring harness plugged into it. If you remove it, the base will look like a large bolt that screws into the intake manifold. 4. Push the plastic harness connector out and lift the wiring harness plug out of the sensor. Using the socket, unscrew the coolant temperature sensor from the intake manifold. 5. Wipe a thin layer of anti-seize compound on the threads of the coolant temperature sensor. Screw the sensor into the intake manifold. Plug the wiring harness back in.

  • Q:

    I found the sensor.I was only finger tight in the hole. I took it out and found some aluminum chips in the bottom.
    The real question is:
    Does this sensor port supposed to have coolant flowing thru it, or is it just a dry socket and counts on the physical contact of the sensor to the cylinder head.
    Mine is dry at this time. I took a look using a scope and it may have some tiny holes drilled in it.
    Please let me know.
    Thanks

      A:

      No, the coolant temperature sensor (BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor Part No. WT5059) will not let coolant pass through it but the temperature sensor is usually located where the coolant runs out of the engine close to thermostat housing. We will need more information including the year, make, model, and engine size of your application before we can make a suggestion. Please call us at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) or visit the nearest Advance Auto store and we would be more than happy to further assist you.

  • Q:

    I have a 1999 Ford Expedition 4WD 5.4 L engine. On the website, this is 1 of 4 different BWD sensors tat that it indictes are "exact fit". The others ar the WT3058, WT3058P and WT763. I would e very surprised if there are 4 different parts and they are all exact fit. The only unit with any reviews is the 3058P and every reviw indiates that unit wasnot compatible for their car. I called the store and asked them and they indicated their system said the 3058 and 3058P. Your website does not permit us to specify the 4WD option (but your store's computer does allow them to specify 4wd) so I have little confidence in which unit to order.

      The 2002 Ford F150 4.6L does not have an Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. It uses a CHT (Cylinder Head Temperature) sensor. It is mounted under the intake manifold on the drivers side just under the thermostat housing. It does the same as an ECT, it controls the temperature gauge and sends engine temperature readings to the ECU (Engine Computer). Diagram which shows the location of the Cylinder Head Temperature on your 2002 Ford F150 4.6L has been sent to the email id provided.
