    Last night I changed my spark plugs and O2 sensor. This morning I noticed that the needle on my temp gauge didn't move. The light worked but not the needle. I see a green wire laying across the top of my engine to the drivers side. Is this the wire? If so, where does it connect? If not, where is the connection? Thanks

    There should be a sensor ont he drivers side head right above #2 and #4 plugs.... It should have a small flat metal connector piece poking out of it. The green wire should have a rubber cover plug on the end with a flat hole inthe center for the sensor to plug into.

    Thanks Emmett. I thought thats what was between the 2 and 4 plugs, but...the connector must have fallen off the sensor because I see no place to connect it. Is this connector a seperate piece that I can replace or do I have to replace the whole sensor? Does this sensor screw out easily? Can I wrap the wire around it for the connection?

    You could either wrap the wire around it or get a female blade electrical connector. Or you could even soldier it on!

    Got it !! I was thinking it was a typical male/female connection. It slides into the side. Thanks
