    Coolant temp sensor location??

    Need a little help here guys...

    I've been searching all over the net for the answer to this. Legacy forums are pretty much nonexsistant. I'm working on a friend's 95 Subaru Legacy and it had a CEL. Pulled the code and it's supposedly the coolant temp sensor. I've been nosing around the engine bay and I can't figure out where the heck the thing would be. I don't want to buy a service manual for this car since I'm only working on it once and I figure that the 2.2L boxer motor in this car is similar to the 2.0L in the WRX....anybody know where the heck this coolant temp sensor might be located???

    Geeze, if we had a rep points system here, you'd be pretty much in the hole right about now
