coolant sensor bad??
The on board display on my 93 GC will flash coolant sensor bad every once in a while?? Where is the sensor so I can replace it? I is starting to drive me crazy.
If you look at your coolant recovery tank (on the passenger side fenderwell), you will see two "caps". One is for filling, the other has wires going to it. The one with wires is the coolant level sensor. You may not need to replace the sensor at all. You may just have a dirty or loose connection.

Had the same "coolant sensor" problem on my '94 a few years ago. It was intermittant and drove me crazy for a long time. I removed the sensor and inspected it, cleaned it, etc.. to no avail. Save your sanity - go to the dealer and buy a replacement like I did.

I clean my IAC and the results are great
I clean my O2 sensor and the results are great
I buff the haze right off my headlights with great results
I clean the coolant sensor with great results.
I have also changed about 20 other bad parts on the truck including axles and pulleys, starters, alts, injectors and a ton of stuff that was unsaveable.
It doesn't hurt to try to clean it and check the connection before replacing it.
