I have had a code reader on my factory 5L EL and it spat out a code for the temp sensor not being within specified range. Now I did but one but when it arrived the plug on it was different to what my car has and after some research I am still at a loss as it appears there are 2 style of plugs. Looking fuelmiser it something along those lines they some a picture of a sensor that looks the same as an AU item which it more rectangular in shape where as mine looks looks the ones they list for eb/ed 5L which is round.

My car is a 12/1996 build so they say it should be the rectangular one but my wiring appears un-altered. So can I use the sensor they say and have the plug changed? or does the eb/ed 5L sensor operate in the same signal range for the ecu? or is there somewhere else ai can soucre the correct part to suit?

You need the EB-L type ECT sensor. I'm assuming you mean ECT not ACT?

Where do I find the correct one because every shop and supplier I have spoken to has told me that that one is the correct one and that there is no other listing for an EL v8. The eb/ed v8 sensors visually match mine but do they match electronically?

as mentioned above just get the eb-ed v8 one, its electronically the same as ef-el..
for some reason it seems they are giving you an au sensor??

if there suppliers listing is wrong they all will give you the wrong sensor, they know no different as they are relying on what a supplier parts catalogue is telling them..

Ask for a an ECT(I'm still assuming you want an ECT and not an ACT) for a 6 cyl E-series Falcon.

Btw; I had the same thing when I ordered a 5.8 rear main seal and autodumb kept insisting a 5.0 one was correct!?!?

I've had the same issue, but from Ford. They list 2 different sensors, both with a different plug end. But the one I wanted is obsolete.

I've already got another one but it's none genuine. I didn't end up using it anyway.

Theres 2 on the 5L, not sure if they're the same as, or different, to each other, but about to do both on mine...

Are they both just "temp sensors"?

You sure? They both in the coolant passages though? Atleast im 99.9% sure...

Where's the air temp sensor located?

I have decided to have my wiring changed to suit the plug. Most only lists this plug for 5L's so it should make it easier long term
