Location of coolant temp sensor

If the stalling ONLY occurs when clutch pedal is depressed, it could be a mechanical fault. The thrust bearing of the crankshaft is worn and this can result in the crankshaft having too much side movement causing the stalling.

My check engine light is on and I took the car to emissions and it failed and the code given was p0117- engine coolant temperature sensor circuit low input. But when I went to auto zone they got a different code about an air sensor. I want to know 1) which is actually the problem? 2) how do I know it has nothing to do with wiring?3)is it true that I can fix the wiring with electrical tape? 4) where is the sensor needed to fix located? 5) will the resulting fix let me pass emissions and result in the check engine light in going off?

P.S. Im a young female trying to save as much money as possible.

Here are the result on the tests for the iacv: the idle seem the same when the connector is unplugged (failed), the voltage reading on the connector y/blk is 12.05V (passed), the resistant is 11.2 ohm and no continuity on either side of the terminals (passed). The valve passed it stand alone tests but failed the idle test. Should I go ahead and replace it anyway?

I was wondering where this sensor is location within the engine so I can see the damage. I was told there are wires broken at the coolant temp sensor 2, but I cant seem to locate where it is.

My wife said the Honda was hard to start and the SES light came on. She turned the engine off and restarted and it got her home without complaint. I read the code on it and it showed a 6. (ECT problem) I checked the shop manual and started going through the test procedures. The first problem is the ECT shows open on an ohmeter. I thought would be pretty easy to fix but I also checked the voltage going to the ECT. The shop manual says it's supposed to be 5V but I read 11V. The shop manual doesn't say what to look for if the voltage is too high only if the voltage is not there. What do you think? Thanks for your time. Jerry

Hi Jerry,

Thank you for the donation.

5 v is supposed to be supplied by the ECU to the ECT terminals and anything more means the ECU is bad.

Hi
Need you to do some testing to find fault. Run engine to normal temp. shut off pull term on ECT measure resistence between ECT terms. 200-400 ohms. If not replace ECT if yes then measure voltage at term wire yellow/green to ground 5V +? now measure between both terminals 5V+? if 11V on both go to ECM pass side kick panel


https://www.2carpros.com/forum/automotive_pictures/198357_Graphic_199.jpg

pull connector measure voltage from term. D13+ to D22- if 11v then ECM faulty.
Let me know
Thnaks for donate
