I have a 2001 Hyundai Sonita that needs to have the coolent temperature sensor replaced. Can you tell me the location of the sensor?

Have to admit I don't know Hyundais but it should be near the engine's thermostat which should be at the engine side of the upper radiator hose.

Why do you think you need this? T

Tom,

Thank you for the information. To answer your question, after the check engine light came on I went to my local AutoZone and they used a scanner to plug in and get the code. The scanner said the car needed the coolent temoerature sensor replaced.

I would buy that part and replace it. If tough to locate just match up the new one to the old one that looks the same. You problably should lower coolant perhaps a half gallon as the sensors do touch anti-freeze. Recheck that it is full again a couple times as they can be tricky to get air pockets out. Suggest NOT using straight anti-freeze as it doesn't have the heat transfer power of the 50/50 mix. Pay attention to that, T
