temp sensors 1997 Ford Ranger

Asked by Aug 15, 2014 at 06:57 PM about the 1997 Ford Ranger XLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Coming out of the thermostat cover is a metal pipe with a sensor (temp?) and several inches further on is another sensor which also appears to be a temp  sensor.  My car overheats while the temp gauge reads normal.  Why two sensors?
