Orphaned Plug After Motor Install
I've officially racked my brains on this one guys and gals.
After a timing chain failure, I removed engine and installed the full Cloyle's kit, new pumps, heads reworked, seals and all accouterments that go along with such a job, reinstalled motor, and.. alas.. i have one stinking plug left orphaned. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out wth this thing goes to. Also, the motor won't crank which may or may not be associated with this issue (solenoid click at first - now nothing).
Would someone with a 2005-similar v6 be willing to head out to their engine bay and help me figure out what this goes to? The only thing i can think of it either it went to some California component that was since removed and I just missed that it was loose when i pulled the motor (but it's a clean plug that looks like it was plugged in so....) OR there's a small box or module somewhere that I pulled during engine removal but have since misplaced.
I took several before photos from several angles but this plug isn't anywhere in the photos (a little creepy actually).
Any/all help welcome. Thnks!
