Coolant Temp Sensor Quick Question

About to change my coolant temp sensor from the lower rad hose, will I be able to just pop it out and pop the new one in without much coolant leakage or is it kind of inevetable? I have maybe 500ml of mixed coolant left at my house and I don't want to have to run and get more unless I need.

If the vehicle is cold and the expansion tank cap is on, you shouldn't lose much at all. You'll lose some, but 500ml should certainly be enough to top off with.
