For starters, remember to never remove the engine coolant temperature sensor while the engine is hot. Allow the engine to cool to ambient temperature (below 50 degrees Celsius) before performing this procedure. 1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 2. Remove the engine decorative cover. To avoid serious injury, never remove the radiator filler cap while the engine is hot. Allow the engine to cool to ambient temperature (below 50 ° C) before performing this procedure. 3. Allow the engine to cool to ambient temperature (below 50 ° C) and slowly remove the radiator filler cap. 4. Drain approximately two liters of coolant into a suitable container. 5. Disconnect the harness connector (1) from the ECT sensor (2). Before removing, clean the area around the ECT sensor to prevent dirt from entering the engine. 6. Remove the ECT sensor (1). If coolant leaks from the cylinder head when the sensor is removed, screw the sensor back into the cylinder head and drain more liquid from the coolant system.
