If you mean the coolant temp sensor, it's the flattened piece of metal behind the cambelt where the rad hose connects...

Maybe?? Not too sure.. AA man said the thermostat is most likely locked up shut, and its keeping all the hot water in the engine, rather than passing it thru to the rad, just heats up :/

So he said thermostat, looked in the haynes, and apparently its behind the rear timing belt cover.

im a total newbie at engines, havent anything to practise on till after xmas, and need this car to work, so cant do it myself incase i make things worse!

Yeah, the timing belt/cambelt cover is in two halves, the front being next to the airbox, and the rear is next to the block. The CTS is in behind that one.

I think it's behind the cam belt cover on that engine although would get a second opinion as not certain. Test the thermostat by putting in boiling water - valve should open if it works.
