        Ford OE Coolant Temperature Sensor

        Most Ford Foxbody and newer Mustang issues are most often due to non-professionally maintained/ substandard wiring practices. The next most common issues being non-OE Sensors and ignition products installed. Note engine and gauge Coolant temperature sensors are (2) independent products, genuine Ford sensors produce proper value restoration to the Vehicle Computer, and AM prices them reasonably. Do the job once, is saving 5$ w/aftermarket parts worth stranding you, roadside? The shop that repairs the issue will use genuine OE Ford parts Replace parts, buy a backup product from AM!

        Great OEM Temp Sensor Replacement

        My original temperature sensor went out about a month ago, so I decided to pick one up. AM has never let me down so I bought what they had in stock. After about twenty minutes I have a working sensor and no worries about the temperature of my engine. Great product! Thanks!

        Small overlooked part that makes a big difference

        Installed after I replaced all the ignition components in my 95 GT. Mustang still ran a little rough after all the new ignition parts, but the new sensor smoothed out my idle and got rid of the random "hic-up" it had before. If you have an old sensor, it's worth replacing.

        Pretty much what I expected

        Part was easy to install. I was upset at first becuase the clip for the sensor would not fit properly and secure itself. My father was able to help me get it secured.

        as close to original as I could get

        The original style sensor wasn't available anymore so I was left with using this instead. It worked perfectly. The installation instructions were straight forward.

      The coolant temperature sensor connector wires on my car is yellow and gray but the one you sent has only white wires on it. So how do I know what wires goes where? Or does it matter?

      • When installing the Ford OEM Coolant Temperature Sensor you should match the wire colors based on their location in the connector. The sensor comes with white wires as the OEM wire color has changed several times.

      I have a 1990 5.0 mustang, 7 up Fox body convertible, coolant temp sensor is a single post elect connection!!! Replacement is a 2 post elect connector, is the 2 post, an improved replacement unit with the 2nd post to be grounded????? Thanks, Brent

      • That would be correct, this will replace your single post connection and one wire will now be your ground wire.

      Coolant temp sensor Low Coolant light appeared recently..Sent car to Radiator Specialty shop yesterday Sat 04/14 Flushed system, added new coolant. Mech said all is fine...Light reappears today..I,m guessing sending unit may be inoperable..70000 miles..Car has been in storage for more than 10 years..Just starting to use it again...1994 Mustang GT 5.0 HO Where is sender located??? Could there be other reason for light showing..Flush, and new coolant Probably never been done before.$90.00 well spent.. Daughter bought car in 94..drove it for 6-7 years as a 3rd car..then put it into storage

      • The sender is on the driver side bank of the motor next to the distributor. The low coolant light could also be coming on because there might not be enough coolant in the overflow bottle.
