The coolant sensor in the 2000 ford Taurus is located on the bottom of the coolant reservoir. so i would imagine it is the same for 2002 You will see two wire connector protruding towards the fender-side. It is built into the reservoir tank bottom so if it needs a replacement the whole unit has to be replaced.

Your Taurus has two coolant temp sensors, one that is the sending unit for the instrument cluster gauge, and one that is for the cooling fan and the PCM.
