Temp Switch Sender/Coolant Temp Sensor

Can anyone show me where these 2 sensors or senders are on a 1996 ZJ 4.0L. I read that one of them has 2 wires and the other is has 1 wire. I have one on the T-Stat housing and one on the intake manifold. They look the same but have different part numbers. Im replacing everything to do with the cooling system one part at a time until it quits overheating.Thanks

Since yours is a 96 you should only have 1 sender. The 96-98 had the gauge ran by the pcm with no need for a second sender.

The one on the thermostat should be the only coolant temperature sender you have. The 93-95 4.0's had a second sender on the very back of the block, under the wiring for the injectors, 3" from the firewall and a ***** to change.

The parts store gave me 2 numbers for the 1996. Coolant Temp Sensor (WT3027Z) and a Temp Switch/Sender (WT428P). They both look just like the one on the Intake. Im pretty sure no coolant flows through the Intake.

That sounds like the IAT, what you want is the sensor that plugs into the side of the thermostat housing/water outlet.
