I guessing you’re talking about your thermostat. Its actually a 5min job, so your are in luck.

Here is the location, just have to undue a few screws. Be careful, you will have some coolant coming out, you can catch the coolant, and reuse it again if you wish.

NOTE: I strongly suggest you change the Thermostat's gasket.

no its not the thermostant! If it was that the car would overheat! The front fans are not coming on which is stopping the air from flowing. it is full of freon. it is called a Coolant temp sensor in back of of intake manifold.

My engine is different from the one pictured above (you can tell that one has a Toyota emblem) I just found that pic online.

But the 98+ have a different intake design all together. Here's a pic of my engine bay:

Coolant temp sensor is located at the aft lower left side (driver side) of the radiator. It has a simple two wire connector on the back. Coolant will flow out when you remove it so just switch it quickly to minimize coolant loss. You will need a new washer, and don't over torque it or you might be looking at a new radiator.
