Default map sensor question

I'm changing the cylinder head today and the haynes book tells me to disconnect the wiring for the map sensor, anyone know where this is?

Okay cool, man taking this thing apart is so crazy. I think maybe gm purposely designed this engine to be impossible to dissasemble on your own. Anyways, Ive disconnected most of the electrical stuff connected to the engine, its about time to start the real work and take off the intake manifold and exhaust manifold...

I don't know. I had a heck of a time with my sister in-law's Neon. It seemed like they put every bolt in a hard to get to place on purpose. I did get that stupid head gasket changed though.

Not to mention that GM didn't design them. (If it were a GM design, this would probably be true.)

Eh, its probably my inexperience kicking in, anyways I have all the electrical parts disconnected now, I just jacked the car up and am draining the oil and removing the oil filter, when I start taking off the valve cover and getting to the nitty gritty of the job, is the a/c compressor going to get in my way? It almost looks to be in the way of me taking off the exhaust manifold thing.

haha yes the AC is going to be in the way of the Exhuast manifold thing.

you might want to try to take the head off with the manifolds still connected. its alot easier to get the intake manifold off once outside the car. some of the bolts like to hide

and since u asked about the AC, did u disconnect the power steering pump also?

Good luck

Well I was just observing, haven't gotten to the exhaust manifold yet, actually I am about to tackle the intake manifold, but right now I am trying to figure out how to get the splash guard off the right side of the car. Some of things holding it in place are bolts, while some of them seem to be just I guess plastic holders of some kind??? Any advice for getting those disconnected?

On those plastic connectors, they are like a pin inserted into the center of the main part. Just take a small screwdriver and pry the center 'pin' out, the rest will pop out. You should see like two little indentations you can pry in. (such a simple part, hard to explain lol)
