So the "Overdrive Off" light was simple enough to figure out. Reading the code pointed me to the OSS sensor, which is mostly on top of the transmission. It somehow became unplugged when I pulled the motor.
The temp gauge still does not work. I have found out that the new (1998) engine uses a different Temp Sending Unit then the 1996 engine.
The old engine used this sensor-
The new engine uses this sensor-
Obviously the difference is the plug. They thread into the same spot near the thermostat, and I moved over the entire harness so the sensor is plugged in, but the gauge (which is the original 96 set up) seems to not work with the 98 sending unit/harness. How can I remedy this? I assume splicing may be involved...
Also, the CEL is on and the code is p1443. This pointed to the Purge Control Valve. It is located near the passenger wheel well and the firewall.
It looks like this-
I only have on vacuum line running to this, and the other side isn't plugged into anything! Should there be two lines running two this? Where do they originate?
Please help! Thanks
