    Can someone tell me where the Engine Coolant Temp Sensor is on a 1988 Honda Civic DX. 1.5. I've searched all over the net and have found stuff that said that it could possibly cause transmission shifting to be rough and for the fans to not kick on and for the fuel to not be pushed in right or some shit like that but im not sure where it's located so I can replace mine beings im throwing a code 6..

    If someone could tell me where to locate it or has a diagram showing where it's at it would be much appreciated..Thanks
