UK Car Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I would agree with your diagnosis, it would appear that your engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty. What is it you would like to know?
Yes, you can get the part of euro car parts as you are uk based by your number plate, they're only about £15 usually.
I've linked an image of what it looks like the one you want, the two pin one, not a single pin if that is offered.
I'm pretty sure it's below the coil pack but i'm struggling to find an image as my laptop has died.
There's plenty or room in those engine bays from memory to see it though.
You would unplug and unscrew the original sensor, screw the new one in, plug it in and then bleed up the engine, shouldn't take long.
