How do you repair a leaking engine temperature sensor?
I have found a coolant leak that is (I believe) at the engine temperature sensor just above the water pump. The sensor does not look like it is threaded but rather held in by a clip? I am hesitant to touch it as I do not want to make a small leak even worse. I would like to find out how this sensor is fixed to the engine and what I would need to repair the leak. Thank You.

Try to put some gasket maker around it. It will helps to prevent the leak.
