...well it measures coolant temperature and tells the computer what the temp is and how to choke/release the air flow...is going to be on the coolant jacket...this one does not identify it as a thermo-time switch but a thermostat (which is a mechanical apparatus) this is a wand that soaks in the flow and tells the computer~
