WHERE IS THE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR ON AN MK4 1.6 8V?

1999 Vauxhall Astra • 87,000 miles

I have a light come on in the dash board and the fan comes on when I start the car and turns off about 2 mins after I turn it off the light is a box with what looks like a flash in.

Not a car on the data base we have access to, but I think that I have a manual for these in my workshop, I will check and re post a bit later.

Thank you very much
If it helps I took it out the other day and went to McDonald's when I came out to start it it struggled to start but after a couple of key turns and a few revs it found itself any ideas?

I would go get a diagionstic scan see if there are any set fault codes, not all codes will set a check light.

Can't identify what the symbol is for, do you have an owners manual? It should be in there, we don't have this model in Aust (that is where I am) but I am looking for info.

It comes up as a coolant fault

Can you advise what the engine code is, that is the engine type identification, as the local Holden Astra and Barina's have opal engines and they may be the same engine so I may be able to track it down that way.
