Hi Mark,
Got it. Those would be the engines temperature sensors.
Did you have any further questions on this, or did you just need to know what they were?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Are they the same thing as a vacuum sensor.
Expert:  Jason replied 2 years ago.
No they are not. Did you need the location/picture of the vacuum sensor?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes please

The fuel vacuum switch is #27. It is installed at the bottom of the fuel vapor tank which is the part on the left.
Was there anything else I could help you with?

No that's it. Thank you.

You are most welcome and I was glad I could help.Just incase you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you can not see the ratings box, please reply back "I rate Jasons service as _______" and fill the blank with whatever you deem most appropriate. Questions do not lose out, so if you have to come back tomorrow or next with follow up questions to this you still can even after doing a rating. Tips are always greatly appreciated.If I do not hear back from you I thank you in advance and good luck!Jason
