      I ordered online, did the Chat thing, and also was able to use the promo code. I picked it up at the store. Doesn't get any better or easier than that!

                I bought this to replace an intermittent sensor on a '95 Nissan. It fit exactly as the site search indicated. The package was a small box with the sensor in a plastic ziploc bag which also included an aluminum sealing washer. Installation was a snap with a standard 19mm deep socket.

                  • Q:

                    I have a 2004 Nissan 1.8L Engine code QG18DE DOHC. The temperature gauge goes from normal to suddenly maximum High. It is intermittent. Radiator does not overheat. Could failure of this part affect Temp gauge and radiator cooling fan? Where exactly is it located? I have Haynes manual 1995 thru 2004. No help in locating this part. Many thanks Archie

                      A:

                      With reference to this BWD/Intermotor Coolant Temperature Sensor - part# WT3071, the coolant temperature sensor should be located near the thermostat housing, follow the top hose back from the radiator to the engine, and near where the hose connects to the engine you will see a big brass bolt with a wire on it. 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. For any further assistance, you may also 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 temperature gauge in my 02 Sentra is going crazy. It can not get a true reading, when I speed up the temp drops and then brake it it climbs to the very top, and when cruising it doesn't have a true reading. I know my thermometer is good just replaced that and my head gasket. Any ideas?

                      On most vehicles, it should send a signal to the engine computer which will then send a signal to the fan to turn on if needed.

                    • A:

                      No this sensor will not cause your car to stall. This sensor's purpose is to alert the driver that there is a problem with the coolant system, by causing the check engine light to illuminate. The code that is generated is P1126 Thermostat Function code. The code's cause could be the temperature coolant sensor, or the car is overheating, which commonly is caused by the thermostat. Other causes could be water pump, coolant system blockage, etc.

                      Most coolant temperature sensors on these cars are located under the intake manifold. To get the exact location of the sensor, I recommend stopping by your local Advance Auto Parts store and picking up a Haynes repair manual for your vehicle. This manual will tell you exactly where the sensor is and step by step instructions on how to replace the sensor yourself.
