we have couple of mirrors and we still can't find it, boy, can't believe it!, can we send you a picture?
Expert:  Dan replied 6 years ago.

You can see the intake manifold and fuel pressure regulator on the picture showing the sensor.....So if you look down on the passenger side of the itnake manifold below the fuel pressure regulator you should be able to see 2 wires going to it.

Passenger side?, got me more confused!
Expert:  Dan replied 6 years ago.
passenger side is the right side.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
but the starter is on the left side, Pilot side, and according to the pictures in under the Starter
Expert:  Dan replied 6 years ago.

Its under whatever side the intake manifold is on which I thought was the passenger side.
