The little wire connects to the power steering pump & lets the ecu see pressure when you turn the wheel. If you still have an IAC it will bump the idle speed to comp for the load of the pump @ parking lot speeds.

Looking in the FSM I see it calls for RTV on the semi circular seal in a big old picture right there. I guess I should have looked there first.

As for that wire, its getting dark and I couldn't really see if the connector had ripped out or if I wasn't getting it on there right... Nonetheless, I think I'll have some wire repair to do.

Lol come on mang, did you read our posts at all? No connector ever was there it's actually just a hose. There's a nipple on the p/s pump for it.

I'm like 99% sure that nipple on the power steering pump is for a wire connector. The female side is a bullet connector. Where did you get the idea it's for hose?

Huh? I don't see how a nipple could ever be for a wire connector. Besides, I know it's for a hose because I had the hose hooked up there when I had a gvr4 with a motor in it, and if you go to Rockauto>steering>power steering pressure hose. Hence the hose.

So where the hell does the hose go, and why is it every GVR-4 ever had has a wire connected to it that goes back into the wiring harness??

The hose is just part of the wiring harness and (as southcali said) it goes to the ecu so it sees pressure. I'm not totally sure how these work, there very well may be wire insulated by a rubber hose, but I know there is no connector on the p/s pump side. Never has been never will be.

On further inspection of rockauto pictars, it appears that it is in fact just a hose. It's a relatively short hose and I would guess the other end would mate up to a pressure sensor on the wiring harness.

It is not a hose!! it's a wire, it connects to a pressure switch on the p/s pump, it grounds that wire to signal the ecu to bump idle speed. Yes it has a huge sleeve & a very weird connector but it is a wire. I just fixed mine when I was repairing a broken wire @ my oil pressure sending unit. If you have no switch then there is some kind of block off or that could be the difference between a tel & Gvr4 pump. Though I am somewhat sure I have seen them on tel's as well.

If my camera hadn't gone swimming I'd go take a pic of it & the sensor but I was just working on it two weeks ago.

It's not a hose, it is a wire with a female bullet terminal.

It connects to a pressure activated switch on top of the p/s pump.

That is the wire, I'd have to pull some stuff apart to get a shot of the sensor in question & honestly don't feel like doing that at this hour.

And yes I need a new upper heat shield it's on the list

Zomg its a connecter or a hose or a wire or a sensor or whatever. It doesn't really matter that much.

What's more important is the aluminum bits that may have gotten into the oil passageways.

I looked at my old stock head and it does go through to the passageway, so I know I didn't punch through when I shouldn't have. I would get a magnetic plug, but its aluminum, so its non-ferrous. I guess my big concern is if this is going to go somewhere other than the pan. If it does just go to the pan, then I'll dump all the new oil down there to get any bits down there. I don't think they are small enough to get through the screen on the oil pickup. I really don't want them to get into the crankshaft bearings. I just did the top end and I really don't want to do the bottom end so soon.

Oil will probably not be able to flush them out of the pan & yea, non ferrous so magnet no workie. You may want to bite the bullet & pull the pan to clean it all out otherwise what it may hurt will be the oil pump, doubt highly the bits can get past the filter. You could try something thinner to get them flushed out, like solvent. Dropping the pan is the only way to be sure, then shoot some brake clean down through with the pan off to get any more that may have stuck to the sides.

But the RTV and the freshness of it being on there and the pain in the ass of taking it off and the scraping and the...!

. Also, that hose goes on a little nipple that I BELIEVE is on the power steering pump. If I was in front of an engine I could tell you, but just look for a really small nipple near that location.



Yes thats for the power stearing.

Well, I spent the last three hours dropping the pan, cleaning and putting it back on. And its a good thing I did.




Ok, now I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to do anything else

This project has taken waaaaay too long

Regarding the half moon...why don't you just get a new one? They're cheap.

And that is definitely not a "hose" that connects to the power steering pump. It's a wire.

She runs! I started her up without all the accessories just to see if she'd run and, low and behold, she fired right up after a few extra cranks.

Tomorrow, if the weather holds out, I'll be getting the radiator back in, hooking up all the other pulleys and basically doing all the last little bits. Look for a write-up about the evo X front struts in the next week or so.

Pics will be here when she's whole again.
