I can not find the temperature coolant sensor on my 91'accord, I am out of ideas. Can you help me, can you explain exactly where it is located?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Stephanie, Depending on what engine you have; The ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor) typically is directly to the left of the throttle body when you are looking at the throttle body side of the V-6 engine. Also, the ECT is directly next to the ignition distributor on the front belt side of the four-cylinder engine. I am not sure if you have a V-6 or a four-cylinder, but this should point you in the right direction. This picture; http://autorepair.about.com/od/glossary/ss/Honda-Accord-Egr-Valve-And-Coolant-Temperature-Sensor-Locations.htm should give you more of a visual though it is listed for 98-99 models the picture is the same for the sensor. I hope this helps!! Thank You for writing into AskPatty. A. J. Valle

Judy Curry, Co-Founder and Vice President of Marketing at Currys Auto Service Stefanie, The coolant temp sensor is behind the distributor ( 4 cyl engine) usually covered in oil next to a coolant hose usually oil soaked. Best, Judy Curry
