Can't help you with a picture, but if you have the I4 engine it is on the left front side of the engine below and quite well hidden under the intake manifold. This part needs to be put back on because these trucks use the sensor to map the fuel curve. Most computer driven vehicles only use this for reference values and turn on the electric fans.

Its a pain to access. I bought a cheap 15mm deepwell and cut the side like an oxygen sensor socket. Took like 5 minutes to change with that tool

In my 04 I5 the temp gauge moves just a little but the heater does get hot, so I suppose it is the sensor. Am I right?
