Hello,

The sensor is up near the front of the intake near the upper radiator hose. Here is a guide that will help you see what you are in for when changing the sensor. You will need to start by draining the coolant slightly.

Can't locate any diagrams of the coolant temp sender that controls my inside gauge, it stays at halfway when I flip the key to on position after vehicle has been sitting a few days, and engine is cold.

Thanks for the reply, but is this the temp "sender" or temp "sensor", they sell both for my vehicle and I changed the temp sensor already, which I believe is shown in the diagram you sent, but I can't locate this sender, does my vehicle not have it, cause I can't find it, I was told that the "sensor" is for the computer, and the " sender" controls the gauge.

Does the gauge move at all? These gauges are cheaply mass produced and go bad often, the cluster may need to be replaced with a rebuild unit.

There is no sender the signal is received from the pcm which controls that gauge or it's run through what is called a can/bus system the only difference in parts is one is listed for a gauge and another isn't it mounts where the pic was

Yes the gauge does move but stays at halfway point, when I start the vehicle or even just flip the key to the on position it goes to halfway and stays, even if the vehicle has been sitting for a few days and I know it's ice cold.
