Question Asked: 

heres a good one for all you experienced mechanics out there, there are 2 temperature sensors on my truck. one by the heater core hose on the intake.the wires go to the pcm. the other temperature sensor is behind the a\c pump by the thermostat housing.but still in the intake. well the person i got the truck had to be a dumbass and cut them off at the wire clip. so i got the new sensor and wiring clip for it, but the wires that go to it are totally gone,not anywhere to be found. i have taken out all of the engine wiring and i am in the process of trying to find them. does anybody have a clue to where these 2 wires go to.the pcm, or into the truck. i really hate to take all of the wiring harness apart to find out it was never in there. and yes i already looked in 2 repair manuals.they do not have the wiring schematics i need

i found part of my problem. theres 2 vacuum lines by the distributor. i believe it is the timing advance. well. the person who had the truck before me decided to plug both lines with one bolt. so i have 2 vacuume lines coming off of there in which i have no clue to where they go. and i couldnt find a book anywhere in town and the dealership couldnt help either.no help finding it on the interweb either. would anybody have a diagram of all the vacuum lines on this vehicle. all of them have been messed with. some are plugged off the intake. it's a nightmare. thanks for the help
