This does not mean the sensor is defective, it most likely means the engine thermostat is stuck open and the engine is not running hot enough to satisfy the computers preset temp requirements for minimum eng operating temp.

    when the engine is hot like after driving for a while put your hand around the upper radiator hose, do this right after you stop, it should be so hot it almost burns your hand, if it is only warm the t-stat is the problem, the sensor is in the thermostat housing.

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer Sports Trac. The Check Engine light came on. My Mechanic's Reader says "Low Coolant Temp." We shut off the light. I came on again. Both times, only when driving more...


The first step is to determine whether the engine is actually running cold or if the engine computer just "thinks" it is. Your temperature gauge is controlled by the engine computer. I use an infrared thermometer directed at the base of the Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) sensor while watching the ECT sensor data on the computer to see if they match. This should be done before replacing ANY parts. You need to make sure that the ECT is not "lying" to your engine computer. Your vehicle is also equipped with a Cylinder Head Temperature (CHT) sensor to measure the the temperature at the cylinder head. (The ECT is located in the intake manifold.) These should read within 5 or 6 degrees from each other at all times. If it is determined that the sensors are all functioning properly, and the engine actually is running cold, then I would recommend getting a thermostat from the dealer. (I have had a few problems with aftermarket thermostats.)

Check engine code po125 - 97 GP 3.8 - heater blows cold as engine temp rises to redline, then kicks in HOT and engine temp drops to normal... REPEAT. Is this the code for coolant temp sensor? Where is it...


What your describing is either a sticking thermostat, a low coolant condition or a blown cylinder head gasket.The code is for coolant temp fault.Not always the temp sensor but it is located next to the thermostat housing.

HAD CHECK ENGINE LIGHT DIAGNOSED, WAS TOLD LOW COOLANT TEMP.


your coolant temp depending on where you are has a lot to do with gas consumption so there for you might want to check your thermostate it could be letting to much coolant pass by at a time and its not keeping the proper temp in the engine do to your location

The engine light is comming on. Took it to Autozone - giving a code "P0126 - Coolant thermostat condition; Low operating temprature, Probable cause - Low coolant level; Open or short circuit condition; or...


The "probable cause" is the "thermostat" is stuck open, not allowing the engine to reach operating temp (190-195f) . As for the sensors, obviously its working, but if its corroded, its leaking and needs to be replaced. Better hope the plug is ok or you will need to replace that also. Replace the thermostat. Stay away from autozone.

2001 ford taurus with check engine light on. code


Make sure you replaced the right one there are two sensor's for the coolant, one takes coolant temp and the other one runs the fans for the radiator. Both are located on drivers side of the block. 2 wire leads on each how ever both are different in sending readings to the computer.Both look just alike also. Just make sure you replaced the right one. Or replace both.
