    the CTS is located right under the vtec solenoid and to the right of the distributor correct..

    because when i went to change it, thats what i took off and coolant spilled out, so i'm assuming that is the CTS.. but this is way bigger than whats in there.

    if it helps, the nut part on the sensor is bigger that 21mm

    well, the CTS i pulled off my motor had a tube coming off the back of it.. and was smaller than this.. i'm just trying to figure out what it is i got

    he said its off a GSR, but wouldnt the b16 and GSR CTSs be the same

    Do you need the 1 wire or 2 wire sensor under the distributor?


    Ones the coolant temp sensor to trip the fan, the others the sender for the gauge...



    I needed the 2 wire (temp sensor for the fans) for my B18B and I took one off a D16Z6 and it was the same....The 1 wire (gauge) sender is also the same on both motors.

    are you getting a CEL 6?




    also, I'll check tomorrow at work (junkyard) and see what I got...I should have something for you.

    just double check which one you need and let me know.

    yeah, thats the 2 wire one...the gauge sender is the one on the other side of the coolant hose



    Its the same as my B18B one...which again was the same as a D16Z6


    I'll check at work tomorrow, I'm sure I have one out in the yard somewhere.

    the one i recieved is significantly bigger.. i could tell as soon as i opened the box.. the nut part is bigger than a 21mm, not too sure what size it is because thats the biggest socket i have..

    yeah, I don't know what the hell the one you got is...



    yours has a 19(?)mm nut, 2 wire connector, the threads are a little longer, and theres a nipple on the backside...its not just flat like that, right?

    you could probably do USPS and ship first class so it would only take 3 days.. it would only be like $2 at the most..
