SERIES 638 COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR (ECM)

The CTS is required for the Turbotronic 638. It provides input to the engine protection system. The CTS is also used to determine engine operating temperature for fuel delivery. ‪

The main component of the CTS consists of a conductivity probe which connects the ECM. ‪

Replacement of Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECM)

To determine if replacement of the coolant temperature sensor (ECM) is necessary, perform the following procedure. See Figure 28571 . ‪

Note: The CTS is non-serviceable and should be replaced as necessary.
