FORD CONTOUR SENSOR PROBLEM

2000 Ford Contour

Have replaced coolant sensor, thermostat, hot - cold guage stuck on hot, even though car has not been started. Where is the switch located for this guage?

We would need an engine size to answer that. There are a lot of choices so give us the 8th digit of the VIN#.

Bio fuel? You mean it's a diesel?
That's why I asked for the VIN code.

OK, single overhead CNG.

B6 and B10 are the 2 sensors. I think B6 is the one you are looking for.
