    Alldatadiy.com is where I would go to get service info for this car. It costs a little but is worth it.

    yes and the wiring is connected at the top of the valve cover just pull it out making sure you get all the peices out because its tightly wedged in between the oil pan and the trans and the new one would be a lot easier to put in
