Coolant Level Sensor ED

I've searched the FOrum and checked out some threads on this topic but it didn't answer my question.

I think the Coolant sensor is stuffed in my fairmont as it is comming on but the tank is not low.

However, I had the gasket done about 2000kms ago, and can't find anyleaks but yesterday the cooland dropped!! I have filled her up and she is alright for now but the light is still on.

Can I replace the sensor or do i have to replace the whole resoivoir?

Do you have to drain the collant to change the sensor? Cause it is under water!

Not sure about the ED ones, but I know that the EA ones just unscrew. I imagine it would be the same with ED's.

You can get yourself a New Overflow tank from the wreckers for around $50.

I have been told that The coolant Level sensor is not available as a seperate part to the overflow tank. (But the guy could have been telling me complete BS !)
The Overflow Tank from Ford Brand new is around $200 !!!!!!

I also have known a few of these things to screw themselves up, but cleaning, or flushing the Overflow tank can help fix the problem.

Nice to see you around again Xyphoid!

My overflow tank developed a leak a few weeks ago (replace yours if it's going yellow!) and the new one cost about $100, without the coolant sensor. Yep, mine came without the sensor. Plugged my old one back in. Tell that guy he's an idiot!

I think the tanks in lower spec models without the sensor are cheaper if you want to do without it.
