Just read this after a few weeks. Important note: Put the cap BACK ON the resevoir tank TIGHTLY after removing it to relieve any pressure on a STONE COLD engine. The cap is a ONE WAY VALVE. If you still get a huge amount of coolant loss out the tiny ECTS port when the sensor is removed, either:

1. The engine was indeed NOT stone cold, or:
2. The resevoir tank cap seal or cap one way vent valve in it is bad.

You should not get a huge amount of coolant loss if the directions are followed to the letter and the system is intact (sealed) and the cap is good and securely tightened, after being initially removed to vent any residual pressure.
