This temp sensor was easy to replace and well worth the money. My 95 Lincoln starts up faster, idle air solenoid operates better, hot & cold running is smoother and gas mileage improved 1 mpg.

        Easy to install. You will need a 1" wrench or an adjustable wrench and a little thread sealant. You will loose no engine coolant so don't worry about making a mess or having to top off the coolant. It took all of about 10 minutes on my 1995 Mustang GTS and now my coolant fan works as it is supposed to.

          I had to remove the throttle body and use a deep socket to get on top of this sensor. throttle body was only held on by 4 bolts on a 92 Explorer. Easy install.

            Looks and works just like the OEM part.

            Use an adjustable wrench to remove and replace.

            That is the easiest way to do this one. It is in a tight spot.

                  My coolant sensor went bust so I go where I always go, Advance, of course they had the part in stock and an hour later my truck was back up and running. The only difficulty I had with this part was that its packed in there pretty good, so it took a little while to get the sensor out, but it went in great and works perfect!

                    Bought a sensor from autozone and it fit correctly. Put it in the car and it wouldnt start. I tried 2 more of the same part and they did not work. Went to advance and bought this part. Much better construction than the AutoZone one, copper threads instead of plastic ones! Plugged it in and the car runs perfect!

                        Hi Rob, I'm glad to assist you. The coolant temperature sensor on your 1989 Ford Ranger 2.3L is located under the hood on driver side in upper engine area just below the air tube intake, should be mounted in the intake manifold.

                    • Q:

                      Is there a difference between an ECT sensor versus a sender versus a switch?

                      My 1994 Lincoln Continental Executive suffers from a malfunctioning dashboard temperature gauge, and, more alarmingly, the radiator fan does not turn on. There appear to be two ECT senders on the engine, and I believe one is sent to the dashboard gauge, while one is routed to the computer for the purpose of activating the fan (among other functions).

                      If I end up replacing both components, can I use the same ECT sender for both, or do I need to distinguish between sender, sensor, and switch?

                        A:

                        Hi Miamatt, it's actually a good question! The part #WT5058 is the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor used by the EEC system ( engine computer). The instrument cluster “talks” to the EEC to get temperature readings. I’m not sure which other switch/sender you are talking about, but it appears the EEC system controls the fan using information from that sensor as well.

                        Hi William, To get more specific information on the location of engine coolant temperature sensor I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle.

                        Hi Dick Sitler, the coolant temperature sensor is used to measure the temperature of the engine coolant of an internal combustion engine. The readings from this sensor are then fed back to the Engine control unit (ECU). This data from the sensor is then used to adjust the fuel injection and ignition timing.
