Question 2000 ford f150 where is the ECTsensor

This 2000 ford pickup 5.4lt was diagnosed with abad coolant temp sensor.
I looked all over for it and can`t find it. The manual shows it near the thermostat housing but all it has there is a set screw plugging the hole.
I found the coolant temp sending unit underneath the intake but no ECT.
please let me know where it is and the colors of the wires to double check.
Thank you.

This engine uses a cylinder head temperature sensor (CHT). It should be located on the driver side head, near the front, under the intake manifold. Wire colors are green/red stripe and yellow/light green stripe.

Thank you for the help. I had found the CHT sensor but I was not aware that this replaced the ECT. I will change it and hope it fixes the problem. I`ll post the results. Thanks again.
