Default Where is the temp sending unit

Where is the temp sending unit on my 96 F150 4.9l 6cyl one of the threads on here said it was below the intake and infront of the starter the only plug thats there is this one and it has 2 wires coming from it

Click the image to open in full size.



Is this it, and is this the one for the gauge, cause my gauge in the truck runs below cold when i drive it, but strangley enough when it sits in the sun all day at work it rises to right above C, but when I start the car down it goes again.

The first pic looks like your Engine Coolant Temperature SENSOR and the second one looks like your Oil Pressure SENDER.

SENSORS = 2 wires (Sensors go to your computer)

SENDERS = 1 wire (Senders go to your gauges)

Keep looking!

(Of course, I could be wrong)

For the gauge, passenger side of the block near the rear below the head. For the computer, in that tube that comes off the thermostat housing.
