: Coolant problem after HG job

We just got the racing caddy started after doing a jake kit and it immediately threw an error code saying stop driving due to engine overheating. The code is as soon as the engine turns on, so it is clearly a sensor issue. How do I check to see if I plugged in the wrong connection?

Any other ideas?

Only thing I can think of is the ECT sensor. Is it plugged in?

Where is that sensor located? Maybe I plugged in the wrong connector in the wiring harness to it.

Standing at the left fender and looking straight at the throttlebody the ECT sensor is down and to the right - on the lower part of the water crossover manifold. The connector should be dedicated: able to attach to that sensor only.
