Temperature sensor replacement

Temperature sensor replacement
You will get the exact price of the service after sending the form

The temperature sensor, also referred to as the thermistor, is located in the cooling system. Its resistance changes depend on the engine temperature. It is not repairable and requires replacing if it fails. The sensor's resistance changes are reflected by the indications of the temperature gauge on the car's dashboard. If the sensor fails, the temperature gauge will not indicate a too high temperature of the engine, which may result in its overheating.
