Help finishing Engine Replacement '97
Last owner blew the engine so they sold me the car for extremely cheap. The car is a '97 White Miata. The replacement engine is from a '96 miata.
I (hopefully) have everything plugged in and ready to go except for a few things that I need a little bit of help finding where they belong.
IF I remember correctly, the 2 pipes below the radiator are fill/drain ports. I can find the plugs to block them/go buy some if needed
I have no idea where the pipe that faces down to under the engine bay connects to.
The remaining 2 plugs, I also cannot find where they belong. Can anybody assist me in finding where these go. My google-fu skills aren't that great when it comes to cars.
EDIT: the cable near the intake manifold is a "temperature sensor that leads to dash"...currently looking for the wire this sensor connects to
EDIT2: Googe-fu skills, I believe I can leave the 2 pipes at the bottom of the radiator as is b/c their for automatic transmissions and nothing will leak out
