Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Replacement

Removal Procedure

Notice: Use care when handling the coolant sensor. Damage to the coolant sensor will affect the operation of the fuel control system.

1. Drain the cooling system. Refer to Cooling System Draining and Filling (GE 47716 Fill) Cooling System Draining and Filling (LY7, LZ4, Static Fill) Cooling System Draining and Filling (LAT Static Fill).
2. Remove the intake manifold cover, if necessary.
3. Disconnect the fuel injector wiring harness electrical connector from the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor.

4. Remove the ECT sensor.

Installation Procedure

Notice: Replacement components must be the correct part number for the application. Components requiring the use of the thread locking compound, lubricants, corrosion inhibitors, or sealants are identified in the service procedure. Some replacement components may come with these coatings already applied. Do not use these coatings on components unless specified. These coatings can affect the final torque, which may affect the operation of the component. Use the correct torque specification when installing components in order to avoid damage.

1. Coat the threads of the ECT sensor with sealer GM P/N 13246004 (Canadian P/N 10953480) or equivalent.

Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice.

2. Install the ECT sensor.

Tighten the sensor to 20 N.M (15 lb ft).

3. Connect the fuel injector wiring harness electrical connector to the ECT sensor.
4. Install the intake manifold cover, if necessary.
5. Fill the cooling system. Refer to Cooling System Draining and Filling (GE 47716 Fill) Cooling System Draining and Filling (LY7, LZ4, Static Fill) Cooling System Draining and Filling (LAT Static Fill).
