Coolant Temperature Sensor - M52/S52, M62, M73, M54, S62

This is the coolant temperature sensor used in many BMW models from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s. The engine computer relies on the coolant temp to set the fuel mapping for the engine. As the car warms up the computer changes the fuel mixture. If your car is running a bit rich (too much fuel) it could be because this sensor is failing and not sending the correct info to the computer.

This sensor is located in a variety of places depending on the engine. But it's one of those easy replacement items 'while you're in there' when doing a water pump or thermostat replacement.
