This vehicle does not have a Coolant Temp Sensor, it uses the Cylinder Head Temp to the job of the ECT. It's located behind the Alternator.

engine light came on and Autozone read code and said it was the ECT and they looked my engine up and sold me one. I will take it back and get the cylinder head temp. Is it hard to replace?

Ahhh. God Bless AutoZone and their constant mis-diagnosis. Like I say, this vehicle uses a CHT (Cylinder Head Temp) Sensor to do the job of the ECT. It's not that bad to replace, but, like i say, the Alternator will need to be removed to get a clear shot at it.
