Coolant temp sensor

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't have a coolant temp sensor on the left side of the block, in front of the block drain plug like the service manual says I should. I only have the one in the thermo housing? Anybody have a clue? It's a 95 with a 4.0

Re: Coolant temp sensor

I know one's for the computer(assuming its the one in the thermo housing). The service manual shows the other on the left side of the block just in front of the drain plug.There's a plug there but no sensor. I'll check in the back of the block. Thanks.

Re: Coolant temp sensor

The one at the back of the block is the gauge.

The one in the t-stat housing runs your computer etc.

The Renix years had it in the side of the block.

Is the manual for your year??

The 1995 year model uses the DC ECM not the Renix. They do not have the sendor/sensor in the side of the engine block under the exhaust manifold just 2 drain plugs. The sendors for that year model are:

1) in the thermostat housing. That sends signals to the ECM.
2) in the back of the cylinder, drivers side. The signals from thet one goes to the in-dash guage.

I think the Renix model ended in ???1991/ 1992. (not sure)

Re: Coolant temp sensor

I believe 90-91 was the crossover. At least I've seen closed cooling systems on both years but no open systems on 90's. As far as sensors, I dunno.
