What is this loose connector? 95 Buick
First off, let me apologize if this is in the wrong area; I didn't see any more appropriate thread. Please correct me/move to proper location if need be.
Secondly, I'll pose my question: yesterday, while replacing the plugs and wires on my son'* Buick Regal Series I (hand-me-down from grandfather; 123K miles), I noticed on the firewall side of the engine, back behind the altenator, and power steering reservoir, there is a loose electrical connector I mean, it'* just hanging free
It'* just a 2-wire clip, the male end. I looked all around as best I could within the radius of the length of wire (about 8"), but can't see any empty female ends. The male end looks dusty, kind of 'dry' and it'* possible that it'* been hanging loose for some time. I just can't be sure I didn't knock it loose while I was accessing the firewall side plugs. It has that locking tab you have to lift to remove from the female end, and that WASN"T.
The car starts, runs like a champ, check engine light no longer on, idling smooth with no stalling. This loose clip has me wondering, though. Are there any diagrams showing what/where all the clips go to? Is it possble this is for a piece of equip that the car doesn't have? I can post pics later (when my camera charges).
FInally, just a big hats off to all who post, both the queries, and those who take the time to reply. I've picked p repair advice to repair coolant leak on my '99 Intrigue Series II (byass elbows through the pullley tensioner), and more recently, correcting the above mentioned rough idle/stalling on my newly acquired '95 Buick Regal, Series I (plugs/wires, cleaning EGR valve and MAF sensor). Both are back on the road, and running smoothly, thanks to you all.
