Not really related to my other thread and likely to be very quick:
I have a 97 ZJ and I just replaced the radiator... The other day it overheated very suddenly (not bad overheating.. No boiing over or steam or all that.. Just barly into the red on the gauge)... It was fine one second and the next the gauge goes to the edge of the red zone and it dings and says "check gauges"... I stopped it and took a look at the radiator and it WAS a little hot... I am guessing because of the suddenness that the temp sensor is only working intermitently (once I started it up and kept driving the temp continued to go down back to normal) and thus the fan is not always coming on when needed... So... My question is: Where in the heck is the temp sensor?

Thanks

You have two.. One is next to the thermostat and the other is in the same general area.. The one with two wires coming off of it is for the computer and the one with a single lead is for the gauge.. You will be wanting to change the computer sensor..
