Default Changing the Engine Temperature Coolant Sensor

Has anyone changed the Engine Temperature Coolant Sensor on a 2005 Vue with a 3.5L engine? Thank you.

No, you will be the first - let us know how it goes.
Just kidding. What makes you think it's bad?

The light has come on the dash indicating a engine temperature coolant sensor being bad. We took it to a Saturn dealership and they said they replaced it but the light is still on. Any ideas?

Are you sure the light on the dash is for the same thing this time? Have you got the code re-read to confirm? Or maybe Saturn just forgot to reset the light.......... Head over to a local autopart store and they should be able to read the code (and reset it) for you for free.

Regardless, I scanned the pages relating to the sensor from my FSM. Looks pretty easy.

Easy to reach location. I wonder how many people actually drain the fluid seeing this is on top of the engine? Politically correctness may be in effect.


The temperature varies very little with this engine. Usually always hovers around 184 degrees.
