Sender should look like this? http://www.napaonline.com/images_pro...ized/78345.jpg

If it's a 3.1 try looking at the back of the engine, on top under the air intake?

Many of these engines had the sender for the guage mounted on the rear head (closest to the windshield) on the corner closest to the mastercylinder) Single green wire..Conveniently located next to the exhaust recirculation pipe..Wonderful place when the engine is warm..(and what 3.1 doesn't get warm fast????)
