    need help locating a part in engine

    Hey there guys, I'm a new member here. I was wondering if anyone could help me finding the engine coolant temperature sensor. My boyfreind bought the part, however he cant find where it is at on my car. I looked around but I know nothing about cars and didnt see any part that was brassy looking like the replacement. Hopefully someone can help me out. 2002 Firebird

    It screws into the driver's side head, near to the #1 cly (closest to the front). Has a 2 wire connector on it - only sensor in that area.

    isn't this a double post...thought you were getting a p0420 code

    p0420 is the driver side catalytic converter code...if your car has less than 80,000 miles on it, the cat is covered under the federal emissions warranty. Go to the dealer and it'll be free...don't delete the code, the dealer will need to see it when they scan it.

    When you get the p0420 code...like I did...it's because the pcm compares the o2 in the exhaust before and after the cats...and if it's out of tolerance it throws the code. You might just be getting the effect of a different problem...like a bad head causing coolant to enter the exhaust on the driverside which causes the cat to go bad. Your motor could be running rich also...but you'd think the passenger side cat would go bad also...which it could be in time. Replacing the driverside cat might just be a temp fix....the dealer should know all this already ...good luck

    Make sure you go to the dealer with a your b/f or your dad...that way the dealer doesn't try to rip you off. Not saying it'll happen, but i've seen it happen
