I have my car in at the dealership currently for a CEL. They told me its a MAF sensor and a coolant temp sensor. The MAF sensor is easy and I have an aem CAI. However, I don't know how to replace the coolant temp sensor. I know it's the sensor located on the radiator but was wondering if someone could help me out in figuring out how to replace it so I don't have to pay their outrageous charges. However, it may just be worth it so I dont get coolant everywhere.

Much appreciated. I think I am going to just have the dealer handle the replacement. I know it's Sensor 2 in the radiator and I don't want to mess around with draining the coolant and everything. Thanks for your help with that!

draining the coolant is easier than you think. put a tray under the radiator, unscrew plug , let drain. you actually dont even need to remove any panels to drain the radiator. you dont need to drain the coolant in the engine to replace that sensor.

Thank you! Do you know what these part #'s are so I can find online?

Thanks

Blake
I've been trying to find the OEM part#s myself since Ebay and other sites say a sensor should fit but is different from next site whereas both sites say in fine print to check number against OEM.
