Likewise, people ask, where is the temperature sensor coolant?
Start by having a look at the unit itself to check its condition, as sensors/gaskets/connectors can develop cracks with extended use and continual temperature cycling. The CTS is usually found at the front of the car, near the thermostat housing, or on the radiator.
Furthermore, can you drive with a bad coolant sensor? Anyone with specific knowledge weigh in. Usually the Coolant Temp Sensor is used for the gauge for fuel trims for cold start enrichment, and fan control. Since the Thermostat and water pump are mechanical the engine will still cool. you will be fine driving until the replace the sensor.
Similarly, you may ask, how do I know if my temperature sensor is bad?
Symptoms of a bad or failing coolant temperature switch (sensor)
- Poor fuel economy. One of the first symptoms associated with a problem with the coolant temperature sensor is poor fuel economy.
- Black smoke from engine. Another symptom of a possible problem with the coolant temperature sensor is black smoke from the vehicle's exhaust.
- Overheating engine.
- Check Engine Light comes on.
Where is the cooling fan sensor?
The cooling fan relay is normally located in either the underhood fuse and relay center or mounted to the electric fan assembly behind the radiator.
