Default Almost Done!



photo1.jpg Photo by scatgo | Photobucket

After 24+ hours of working on my car I am at a standstill because of two wires. There is one right next to the starter that I dont know what it plugs into and for the life of me I cant find the wire that plugs into the coolant temperature sensor that is right under the thermostat. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

What year and model is your PT Cruiser? A little history of what you have been doing to it would also help.

He's wrapping up replacing the timing belt.
Why he's messing with wiring, i dunno....

2002 2.4. Just Replaced the head gasket. Did a lot of research and it looks like the one wire might plug into the starter. For the wire I cant find it MIGHT come out of the left end of the injector harness and down to the coolant sensor but I just cant find it.

Your coolant sensor wire should be coming from the PCM. The coolant sensor wire connector could be hidden somewhere so you might have to trace it from the PCM.

Got it. Thanks for the help. I traced the wires like suggested and the wires are a part of the fuel injector harness. The sensor plug got buried under the intake manifold when is was putting things together.
