    The one on the coolant bridge is for the temp. guage and looks like this:



    I think the one i bought is on the block somewhere. Its the one that tells the computer how hot the coolant is. Not to be confused of course with the coolant fan switches on the radiator

    I think there are two sensors on the coolant bridge, maybe the one you are questioning goes on the back side of the bridge...not sure.

    Also, this coolant bridge picture might be from you car. On page two (scroll down) you can see the coolant bridge and the sensor might be located on the back of the bridge (facing the car, right side).
