If you are having idling and rich/lean issues in 89 4.3 S10 and other years that use a temperature sensor that is mounted on the intake manifold then consider changing this sensor. This sensor is connected to the computer and affects many settings. Also change the connector that goes to it (solder and heat shrink). I did and my high idle problems are gone. I also replaced the temperature sender/sensor on the head (it has a one wire connector). It was the original and the anti freeze was drained and I like to prevent problems from occuring.

                  One is for the gauge.  The other is for the computer to sense temp to know when to go into closed loop. It basically controls the air to fuel ratio.  If the vehicle is running rough getting bad gas mileage then it needs the computer control temp sensor

              • Q:

                What is the closed temp set point on this part? I have a 2004 Pontisc Grand Am GT with the 3.4L V6, according to everything I have read online the set closed temp on the factory sensor is 250, that seems WAY too high of a temp before the fans cycle on. I am looking for a replacement sensor that closes closer to 180 than 250, thanks.

                  A:

                  Happy to assist, Randy! It is a temperature sensitive resistor. Its voltage constantly varies with engine temperature and does not have a "closed" or "open" point. The PCM looks at this signal for all engine temperature functions. The programming in the computer decides when the fan comes on. As long as the sensor is accurate reporting, changing it will not affect the fan.

                  A:

                  With reference to your inquiry on the BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor - Part No. WT3000, the coolant temperature sensor on your 2001 Chevrolet Impala is located on the lower intake manifold on the driver side. It has a 2 pin connector going into it. The EGR valve is located on the driver's side of the engine bay towards the rear. And normally Chevrolet does not have fuel pump reset switch.

                  A:

                  The coolant temperature sensor on your GMC Safari Van should be located on the driver's side of engine towards the back of the engine beside the knock sensor. The coolant temperature sensor may be the possible cause of the problem. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not (solve/be) the problem. This BWD Coolant Temperature Sensor - part# WT3000 is an exact fit for your vehicle. 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.

                  This could possibly be the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer.
