Checking coolant level, verifying operation of the engine thermostat, verifying the fan is operating, and the control circuit for the fan
In this video I go through the steps on determining why you may have code p0115. Ultimately, it comes down to two things, the harness connector or the coolant temperature sensor itself. A simple diagnosis that any one can perform at home. This was performed on a 1997 Nissan Maxima. Check with your vehicle's repair manual for testing parameters. »»» Subscribe: http://youtube.com/carsntoys »»» Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Carsntoys/118041931705993 »»» Website: http://carsntoys.net ***OTHER VIDEOS THAT MAY INTEREST YOU*** --- Wheel bearing replacement with basic hand tools: https://youtu.be/B4EW_cJrzIE --- Choosing the best oil filter: Wix XP / Amsoil / Royal Purple.. https://youtu.be/kx-NT1DEtlU --- Touch Screen car radio install: https://youtu.be/ZZ_WYUIAI0o Tools Used: Safety Glasses Digital Multi Meter Note: This video is being performed by an experienced tech.

this is video on how to bleed the coolant system on a general motors 3.1 liter and 3.4 liter v6 commonly used . if you do not bleed the coolant system after doing lower intake gaskets,water pump,coolant hose or many other things that expose the coolant system to air will cause a overheat condition.
*** PLEASE READ *** In this video demonstration, I show how to get to, remove, clean, and replace the throttle body and idle air control motor (aka IAC) on a 4.2l ford motor. This procedure is the same for any fuel injected vehicle. * * * Check out my website krkvideos.com * * * The vans require removal of alot more stuff just to access the throttle body. A dirty IAC can cause a rough idle. A dirty throttle body can harm performance and cause rough engine operation. When the throttle body or iac is removed a new gasket must be used to properly seal the connection to the intake. GM idle air motors are generally mounted on the throttle body and can be cleaned without removal from the throttle body. This means one less gasket and a lesser chance of creating a vacuum leak. The ford throttle body had a note on it that said it was not to be cleaned because the coating on the throttle blade might be damaged. Thats fine for a new car but that has to be disregarded when working on something that has some miles on it.

IAT - Intake Air Temperature - Measures the temperature of the air the engine is intaking. IAC - Idle air control - Controls the amount of air the engine is intaking while it is idling. Throttle body - Responsible for regulating flow of air into the engine as you press the gas pedal. TPS - Throttle position sensor - Tells the computer how far you are opening the blade in the throttle body so it can add more fuel to compensate the added air. * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * * * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * * * * * Visit krkvideos.com for more! * * *

Here is a quick and easy way to check temperature sensor. I could have done a lot of other checks, but i'll do them later if the sensor doesn't fix the problem. As far as sensor being bad, there is no doubt.
