HELP! Broken Connector on rear of Head - Single Green Wire

Post by mreinsmith » Wed Apr 15, 2009 7:30 pm

When reinstalling the engine of my 2002 Neon, a connector broke off of the rear of the head. This connector is bolted to the rear of the head on the drivers side.

The wire that goes to the connector has a single green wire (with what appears to be a red stripe). THis wire splits out of the wiring harness by itself.

here is a picture when the engine was first removed

For the life of me I can't figure out what it is so that I can order a new one!

I've been scouring my manuals and the only clue i got was a brief mention of a capacitor, but nothing else.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

its a noise isolator sometimes called a capacitor. its like $10-17 at the dealer (pn# 4793117). And its green w/ orange tracer not red =p its the ASD output, i guess it helps remove noise from the power to the coil pack.
