When I fitted my C16SE into my SRi, I kept my old 1.4 engine loom and have had no problems. However, one thing is bugging me. I have no idea what a connector on the inlet manifold does/is and wondered if anyone could enlighten me. Don't get me wrong, this is purely out of curiosity...the engine is running beautifully.



It's the metal part on the right of the inlet manifold that is a 2 pin connector. Nothing is currently plugged into it as you can see. What the hell is it? :laugh:

Thanks in advance.

With it being on the intake manifold side I would guess it may be something to do with the air.

Hmm....could it possibly be the sensor that is currently on the rubber sleeve from the throttle body to the air filter? I have the sensor on there but can't remember if I used the rubber from the 1.4....

Maybe the Astra (donor vehicle for C16SE) doesn't have the sensor in the same location (ie. on the manifold itself and not on the rubber sleeve)?

just a guess, but it looks like an intake air temperature sensor, any chance you could pull it out and take a close up pic?
shouldn't make much (if at all) difference being disconnected.

I think I hit the nail on the head in my last post....I think on the Astra loom it attachs to the manifold but on my Corsa it attaches on to the rubber inlet sleeve :thumbs_up:
