I have been trying to fix a miss forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my last attempts will be to replace the engine wiring harness.

I have the replacement (used) harness laying on my bench and would like to test every wire for continuity before installing. Can someone point me toward a pin out diagram?

Also, does anyone know the value of the capacitor that attaches to the front engine bank?

And lastly (for now) which water temperature sensor is used by the pcm and what is the range of resistance? The dual pin one or the single pin one?
Thanks in advance

The ECT coolant sensor is two pins and will throw a code if the wiring is bad.

The coils should all have a common 12V+ wire.

Hi Paul,
thanks...
the coil I'm referring to is the coil within the washer relay....in the the engine compartment fuse box.

should it have a constant 12V going to it when the key is in on/run?

the coolant sensor; any idea what the resistance values are?

Jim, if your spare harness tests bad, I have another one you can have.
