I can't find the Coolant Temperature Sensor (CTS) on my truck listed above. I know where the Cylinder Head Sensor (CHS) is and all the information I have found is not distinguishing the difference between the two sensors. Does this truck actually have a coolant temperature sensor or sending unit that controls the coolant temperature or is something else controlling the coolant temperature gauge?

Good afternoon,

The cylinder head temperature sensor is for the gauge. I attached the procedure and an explanation for you of the sensor and what it controls.
