back of the motor....under the Y pipe.....almost unaccesable....in order to access it you have to go from under the truck...take off the heat shield between the Y pipe and the block (2 10mm bolts and 1 13mm bolt).....see the Tech Files area and there is a picture......Marc

Thanks Marf I was afraid of that. Do you think I could change the connector.

you need to take the air cleaner and intake, coolant jug, and the FICM (fuel injector controll module) that is located on the drivers side valve cover off......then carefully get the ICP disconnected (there are two sensors....you want to disconnect the smaller one that DOESNT have a wire tab on the connector)....then pull it out towards the front of the vehicle.....change the connector (make sure to solder or crimp VERY tightly witht he solderless non insulated connectors and use real heat shrink tubing...and dont forget to put the heat shrink on the wire BEFORE you connect the ends together...dont laugh...weve all done it).....then getting it re connected is the pain....also make sure to wrap all the excess wire very well together with electrical tape and secure it so it cant rub.........Marc

Marc,

I think I will give it a shot it is cheaper than letting the dealar attck the problem I aleady have the parts. Unfornately I thought the sensor in front of the oil dipstick was the sensor, it is the some exhaust sensor. Would you tackle it? I am a mechnic just want to make sure there are not special tools i have to buy. lol.
Thanks Marc!

no special tools required.....its time concuming and frustrating....and sometimes getting both the releases on the three FICM connectors to release at the same time is tough.....but if it was my truck and i knew i could get it all back together (its all basic parts) i would do it...just remember to put gold coolant back in her and not green.....and only fill it to the bottom of the cold fill range.......Marc

please....let me know how it goes or you....it is still easier to take that heat shield off and disconnect and connect the connector from underneath, just reaching over the left side of the trans....but after that you should be able to do the splice from above........and ask away if you need any help.......Marc

Marc,

Got her a little improvising with a hanger and off she went. I also found oil all over the connector. The sensor is leaking. Now how the heck do I get that out. It seems to me that my girl will be doing some wrenching. Or the turbo and the intake has to come off. Please advise!
Thanks

Kraig
