1996 contour SE duratec V6.

Where is the coolant temp sensor located? I see what resembles a sensor, but not sure if that's the coolant temp sensor. It is right next to the thermostat housing. I will post pic when I get home.

That should be it.. I can't really tell much by the photo. The sensor should have a white/green and a brown/green wire connected to it. Here's a link to the diagram and instructions: http://ww2.justanswe..._003753_ect.pdf
