Engine gets hot but fan want come on,i was told that I need an engine coolant temperature sensor and the fan will work
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi there. The coolant temperature switch, also called the coolant temperature sensor, is a switch that reads the engine coolant temperature and sends a signal to the engine control module, or ECM, to control other functions of engine operation such as the air-fuel ratio. It is also called a switch because on some cars, it is used to turn on the engine cooling fan at a specific temperature. This aids in the engine warm-up process as well as keeping the engine at a safe operating temperature. In order to provide you with an accurate price, please fill out a request for coolant temperature switch replacement.
