Hey there folks.

I've been driving an old Chrysler LHS 2000 for the longest time, and finally purchased my deceased grandfather's 2012 Chevy Cruze from my folks because I felt it was time to get a car that wasn't over half my age. She's been doing just fine, but I've occasionally been getting a check engine light (it comes and goes, mostly isn't there). I hooked up an OBD-II tool and got back a P0597 code. There seems to be a lot of debate about whether or not this is the thermostat itself or just the sensor - it's been fixed from both. I've decided to try the cheaper alternative first: the sensor replacement.

Now my question is, where do I find this sucker? There seems to be some variation on part location between the 2011 and 2013 Cruze models, while I am right in the middle. Here's the car specs:

2012 Chevy Cruze 2LS
Engine: 1.8L L4 DOHC 16V FFV
Part: ACDelco 213-4688 Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor

I'd post some pictures but I'm a new member, so, let me know if you need any more information!

2LS? I am not familiar with that. Is it a 2LT?

Look at some of these threads to see if you can find your answer:

Antifreeze Smell Thread V.2

Also try searching for "Coolant Sensor" at the right.

Don't forget to introduce yourself and your Cruze here.
