    Where is the temperature sensor located?

    Another question about my friends Camaro i'm helping with. (1988 350 v8, auto). The temperature gauge doesn't work so i'm guessing the sensor for that is bad, where is this located at so we can replace it. Also his dad has the fans wired up to a switch....how do we revert this back to stock?? It has a heating issue that I believe is due to shitty coolant and a bad thermostat which we are gonna change soon. Thanks again.

    Isn't that where the thermostat is located??? Or is it near there too? What does the sensor look like for the temp gauge?

    Thermostat is on the passenger side, bolted to the water pump.

    On your car the sensor is in the intake somewhere. it will only have one wire going to it.
    As for the fans you will need to find the wires coming out of the computer and splice them back together, should be around the fuse box.

    Yeah what he said, the sensor is pretty small.
