      A:

      The coolant temperature sensor on your 1999 Ford Ranger should be located on the front, top of the engine. Look near the upper coolant hose on the engine for a sensor with a couple of wires on it. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

  • Q:

    My 1993 Mercury Tracer 1.9L's cooling fan does not come on because the sensor telling it to come on is bad. If I turn my AC compressor on, the cooling fan will turn on. There are several different AC switches showing up for this vehicle. Is this the one that controls if the cooling fan comes on or not?

    Thanks.

    • A:

      The ECT monitors coolant temperature and sends a signal to the engine computer so that it can regulate fuel injectors. Properly working, it facilitates cold starting; also, smooth idling at ambient temperature. It may also control cooling fan power, if vehicle is so equipped.
