According to my CD Manual the sensor is located on the power assist
cooling bracket near the radiator. Sorry, the illustration doesn't
really give me much of an idea where that is. You should be able to
see it in that vicinity. A rough approximation would be a sparkplug
shaped attachment with a set of wire leads.
Hope this helps.
