Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Range / Performance Problem

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECT sensor is used to monitor the ECT. The ECT sensor has a built-in thermistor with a resistance that varies according to the temperature of the engine coolant. When the ECT becomes low, the resistance of the thermistor increases. When the temperature becomes high, the resistance drops. These variations in the resistance are reflected in the voltage output from the ECT sensor.

The ECM monitors the sensor voltage and uses this value to calculate the ECT. If the sensor voltage output deviates from the normal operating range, the ECM interprets this deviation as a malfunction in the ECT sensor and sets the DTC.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

HINT:

1 CHECK ANY OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P0166)

(a) Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.

(b) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

(c) Turn the tester on.

(d) Enter the following menus: DIAGNOSIS / ENHANCED II / DTC INFO / CURRENT CODES.

(e) Read the DTC.

Result

2 INSPECT THERMOSTAT

(a) Remove the thermostat (See page CO-16).

(b) Check the valve opening temperature of the thermostat.

Standard: 80 to 84°C (176 to 183°F)

HINT:

In addition to the above check, confirm that the valve is completely closed when the temperature is below the standard.

(c) Reinstall the thermostat (See page CO-17).
