Does anyone know where the location of the Coolant Temperature Sensor is in the 2012 Avenger R/T?

Mine has gone bad and need to change it out, but don't want to take it somewhere and get charged out the butt for it.

On the Avengers, the engine is transverse (sideways) mounted placing the left head right in front. So the sensor will be all the way to the right and down a little on the head facing forward (towards you).

Anyone know where it’s at on the 3.6? This is my next step to figuring out what my cooling issue is. My fans are only running if my a/c is on. And when they’re running, it’s not fast and they turn off and on every minute or two. Has anyone had this issue? I already tried the relay that’s mounted on the grill (coolant fan relay) and it’s still doing the same. Hoping the coolant temperature sensor is what’s making my fans not run right. Thanks in advance

Couldn't find the answer anywhere online but now I know. If you can find where the thermostat is then you are in the right area. Take off the intake hose from the air filter to give you more room. Locate the radiator hose going into the engine, that is where the thermostat is housed. Literally right behind the thermostat housing in the temperature sensor, it screws into the back of that housing. There are two things that screw in there, one is a hose and the other has the electrical connection attached to your sensor and it is closer to the engine side. I took the outside small radiator hose off in order to get to it better.
