I need to replace the cooling temp. Sensor for the gauge. All the repair books and manuals show it in the manifold right behind the thermostat housing, but its not there. I have had 3 mechanics look for it and they cant find it either. Any idea where it is?

Your vehicle uses a cylinder head temperature (CHT) sensor and it should be on the top front of the engine or maybe left side of engine if for the 4.2L engine.

Here is a guide to help you see what you are in for when changing it out.
