Comments about BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor:
Sensor for 98 Bonneville and though controled gauge perfectly it fails to kick on cooling fans at designated 212deg or ever. Researched problem and I am just one of many with this problem. Go with OE part for sure on this one! Ended putting back original to prove prob. after intake replacement caused alot of extra time, second guessing and back tracking!!

Q:Where is the coolant temp sensor located on a 1997 Buick Lesabre 3800 v6?
A:Generally, the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor is screwed into the intake manifold near the termostat housing. Look for the upper radiator hose, and where it attaches to the engine.. The Temperature sensor should be nearby. Usually there is one wire coming out of the sensor. Some vehicles have two sensors, the second has two wires. These are also generally screwed into the intake manifold or one of the heads. The second one, if there, has two wires and these send signals to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module).
Q:i just purchased this temp sensor for my 1996 olds cutlass I installed it and the fans will still not come on once it is up to temperature I unplug this sensor and the fans come on, that tells me the sensor is either wrong or defective
A:In order to best answer your question, we need more information and our technicians would be more than happy to assist you if you could please call us at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623).
Q:Is this the sensor that activates the cooling fans.
Q:Neither fan will come on as engine temp increases. Eng. Temp gage seems stuck at one point. A/C compressor will not come on either.
A:YOU MUST BLEED THE AIR OUT OF THE COOLING SYSTEM!! If you do not do this, the sensor will not read the temperature and more importantly, you WILL overheat the engine block and / or blow a head gasket.
Q:Does this sensor control the temp of the engine or just monitor it? If it does control it where is the sensor located ?
A:The coolant temperature sensor is a thermistor that changes resistance as the engine's coolant temperature changes. The sensor's output is monitored by the engine computer to regulate various ignition, fuel and emission control functions, and to turn the radiator-cooling fan on and off as needed. The most common coolant temperature sensor location is near the thermostat housing.
Q:how do I change the engine coolant temperature sensore on my 1996 camaro v6. I already know where it is located. do I need anything special to coat the threads with?
A:I would recommend using some locktite or the white plumbers wrap tape on the threads.
A:before you install the new senseru can put a little pipe joint compound on the treads or wrap a small amount of tifalon tape on the treads wraping the opposite direction of the twist on the treads
Q:where in a 1997 CHEV. LUMINA 3.1L v6 is this sensor located?
A:Coolant temperature sensors are usually located near the thermostat housing.
Q:where in a 2002 3.1L v6 is this sensor located?
A:In order to be more helpful in response to your question. We need specific information about your vehicle make, model, and year. If you happen to be near an Advance Auto Parts store, you can visit the store, or contact us at 1-877-ADVANCE. This way we can help you find the right part to fit your vehicle.
Q:Temp guage seems to give accurate reading but cooling fans don't run when temp gets high. Fans will run when A/C or defroster is on though so its not a relay. Could it be this?
A:We are unable to diagnose your vehicle. We recommend that you consult with your local machanic.
