Re: 05 Freestar - Engine coolant temp sensor
Thanks for the link Sterling_Six. It's a 4.2L model. Unfortunately the "component locations" link doesn't have that info yet. I went to Ford service and asked where the ECT is located on my model, and the diagram showed it at the rear side of the manifold. They would give no more info than that. (This location is deep in the engine compartment which is why I was wondering if there was any other way to access it besides removing the upper manifold) I had a windstar before and the ECT was right beside the thermostat housing like you said. But for the freestar it seems to be in a different place. And I'm having so much trouble finding any information online (free or pay) that gives more detail than just "unhook from battery, unscrew old sensor, screw in new sensor, and rehook to battery" But none ever say where the darn thing is located and how to get to it. Thanks again Sterling for your response. I'll keep an eye out on autozone.
