Hi all

I have a 2005 T5 2.5 which has started to smoke on startup and is lump when idling (cold start only).

I understand from reading other threads that this could be the coolant/temperature sensor. I have purchased the sensor for about £12 but cannot seem to locate it on the engine? I believe it is not that tough to fit.

Please could anyone point me i the right direction? I have tried finding a schematic online but have not had any joy.

Many thanks in advance

Paul

Thanks Maudsley,

I will try that too - the only other point I for got to mention was that my temperature/low coolant light was flashing on a couple of cold mornings too and the levels are fine.

Hi PalfieM,
Did you change your coolant temp sensor on the engine okay? I don't suppose you have any decent pics of it and where it's located please? I am dreading changing it as I understand its the front end off?
cheers
