: Engine wiring help needed!

07-15-2010, 02:45 PM
I am just finishing my valve cover gaskets&spark plugs tubes (oil in plugs) and timing rail guides replacement project. I was just plugging wires and found out that two labels were missing. :thumbdwn:

Heres a pic showing the wires in question (bad pic I admit!): Its from driver-side engine wiring loom. Two cables marked by the arrow (other one is directly below it)

So does anybody know where they are supposed to go :) There two possibilities, but I'd hate gamble as I have idea what the other one does. (other is just a temperature sensor).

Even If somebody would have a uncovered engine pic laying on on their computer; id would like take a look at it. I usually take lot of pic while doing projects like this, but this time when I actually would have needed one, i didn't take any :)
