      A:

      The Coolant Temperature Sensor should have two little wires coming out of it and is screwed into the top of the engine block usually right next to the coolant inlet.

      A:

      I do not believe so. With out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis.
