Temp sending unit, HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!

I have been looking for the Temp sending unit for the gauge inside the cab.

I have been told it on the diver side corner of the head but i cant see it.
Can someone take a picture of theirs so i can see it? if not i have posted some pics to see what im talking about. The reason i ask i because the last owner took the ECU Tempo unit out and just left it hanging, and put the gauge sending unit in its place and just added wire to make it reach out of the wiring harness.

Here is a pic of what it looks like. If someone could draw an arrow of where it is or post you own pic's, i would appreciate it.




Times you kick yourself in your own ***: When that stupid Private wakes the whole platoon up by running through the bay screaming "Reveille,Reveille,Reveille!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !" And your like "Who the hell put that guy on last fire guard" and then you realize.... You did -.-

This is a pic from the firewall side of the engine before it was installed. It's kind of fuzzy but hopefully will give you an idea.

I don't see it there. Taking a better look at your first picture. The sensor in your hand goes where that little white one is plugged in to your thermostat housing. The little one that is currently in your thermostat housing is the one that should be screwed in near the firewall. The hole for it apparently is plugged with something or else it would spill coolant out of the head. I have not heard of this sensor being non exsistant so maybe someone else will chime in.

Someone else told me "Looks like it was Swapped with an obd2 motor or head."
Its still running and OBDI ECU though. its goofy. It would makes since though. The last owner said that the motor was brand new with only 20,000 Miles on it. :P

If it is OBDII then I'm not sure where the hole for the sensor would be. I took one more shot to see if it helps. You can see the gray over white of the sensor and the base is brass looking. It is right near the last bolt that holds the manifolds on.

Nope, further back and around the corner, between the valve cover and the firewall. At least that's where the one on my 4.2 is, I don't know for sure on the 4.0.

You mean a later engine. Or from a Cherokee. My wife's YJ 4.0L had the same issue. No hole to screw in a sender for the gauge.

I installed one of these, and now the sender is hooked up & the gauge works perfectly.

Max for the win!

My engine is from a 93' Cherokee and has the hole in the correct location.
