    Had to replace head gasket (that sucked!) And now have everything back together and connected except one wire plug. It is a single wire connector, green in color (with maybe a small white stripe). It is on the intake side near the power steering pump. I cannot for the life of me figure out where it goes. Please help!

    Driver side of power steering pump is a piece that kinda looks like a fitting, I think its a temp sensor. Pretty sure that goes there.

    Apparently its an oil pressure sensor for the power steering.

    I went out and looked but didn't see any fitting on or near the power steering pump. Do you have a photo or drawing?

    Well I went out and looked and I cannot find that mystery plug! Here is what I see under/side of the ps pump.

    Its the brass fitting on the bottom in your pics. Yours has a hose attached to it for some reason. Looks like a vacuum hose that isn't in the right spot...
