Have you ever wondered how the vehicle’s engine cooling system works, and whether an engine is working at the right temperature? Every vehicle engine needs coolant/antifreeze to run correctly and a coolant temperature sensor is critical to enable the monitoring of your engines temperature.
The engine coolant temperature sensor is a device which is used to measure the temperature of the coolant mix within the engine’s cooling system. The sensor works alongside the ECU (engine control unit) in a vehicle to continually monitor the temperature of the coolant, ensuring that the engine is running at the optimum settings.
The ECU then reads this temperature and calculates the coolant temperature, adjusting the fuel mix, ignition timing and fuel injection point accordingly. This information is also used to send a reading of the engine’s temperature to a gauge on a vehicle’s dashboard.
To test the coolant temperature sensor, ensure the ignition is turned off, and then disconnect the sensor from its electrical connectors.
