    Hi everyone.

    Went to drive my Taco to work this am and got a crank no start.

    inspected the engine bay and found fresh poop and this…CRAP! A total chew through of something.


    Thinking this is the issue. Truck was running great no codes before this am.

    Any idea on name and part number?

    thanks so much!!!

    I think it may be too high? Wires are green/yellow and brown. Maybe an oil sensor?

    Thanks.

    I have been able to remove the two pin of one connector but stumped by the other end. It’s an awkward spot which makes identifying the clip mechanism challenging.

    Any ideas for removal?

    the base of the clip seems to be on a threaded element that goes directly into the top of the block.

    Looks like the correct wire, I know were all just here naming off engine sensors, but I'm pretty sure that's the engine coolant temp sensor?

    Scan the computer and let it tell you why it's unhappy.

    Yes! Researching this on the web indicates that is it. Coolant temp sensor. Just need to pop the clip on it somehow. Surely I can do it without having to remove the timing cover.

    10 min job, I had to unbolt that small bridge at the fuel rail to get a socket on it.

    Super easy.

    Got the clip! Now I need to figure out though if this is the reason for a no start. I would think a sensor would not lead to a no start scenario. I guess scanning now is a good idea.

    this might be your code that you will scan......

    It's the coolant temp sensor, and it can cause a no start. In a pinch, you can jumper the wire running to the computer with a resistor per the below chart. The issue with the open circuit is that the engine likely thinks the coolant is extremely cold, and it then likely sets the other control parameters for a start under those conditions, which doesn't work when the engine is warmer. Had the same thing happen to my truck, and used a 1.5 kOhm resistor to get it running as needed until I could buy the pigtail (believe it's part 82219-34020).

    Thanks! Part ordered and will be here tomorrow. I will await install of the new one before further investigation.

    Appreciate the collective knowledge!
