2006 Chevrolet Colorado Question: Where is the location of the temperture sensor
Answer #1mastertech6371 April 12, 2011, 17:44Master
a code never identifies a bad part, just a failed system.
i am assuming that it is a 128 code which talks abouttemp of the motor. more than likely, it is a failed thermostat. i would look at this before a coolant sensor.
by the way, it is located by the thermostat housing and has a 2 wire connector.
thanks for using repairpal.

Your right sorry it was a 128 code, the dealership said it could be the temp sensor, the thermostat or a lose wire, or low coolant...he thinks its the sensor so we bought it, but nobody at the auto zone could find it under the hood. I may take it back and get the thermostat. its a high dollar thermostat wow.. thanks for you help, this site is so cool, you have been a big help.

the reason it is expensive is it comes as a housing.
