unlikely it will fix that kind of problem. the sensor should be located in the top fron of the enfine, either in the center or below the thermostat housing.

yah, i did try to find some dodge forums last night. the one that i found wanted a $40.00 annual fee to join in!! not gonna happen! then i found one other source and just had to leave a e-mail for the expert dude.

so, this morning i simply called my trusty mechanic for his free advice and time and he got me pointed right to the sensor. unfortunately it was right under my nose! i just couldn't see it last night with a flashlight. oh well, got it changed.

and as far as it not having anything to do w/ the problem/symptoms the truck was having...(i was also uninformed) this sensor lets the computer know the engine temperature at all stages...stone cold---normal---and whatever so that the computer can use its info (in part) to decide how much fuel delivery to the injectors is needed. a lil more when cold, and less/normal when at operating temp. in my case, if the sensor was faulty, the computer wasnt sending the right info ( "HEY!!!....WE NEED MORE FUEL RIGHT NOW 'CAUSE THE ENGINE IS COLD!!!") my engine would die in the mornings untill i revved it up to normal operating temp.

hopefully this was the problem, if not, then i have a $22.00 new sensor and i will check out the next likely item. i'll find out if it fixed the truck tomorrow morning and report back in case anyone has the same situation someday.

Cool

unfortunately, the new sensor didnt correct the problem. and the engine has not emitted a check engine code yet, thus engine scan tool didn't show me anything today either. schit! guess whatever is wrong wants to break first so i can find it easier!! not cool.
