Connector underneath Power steering pump

I replaced the head gasket on my 2000 alero 3.4L v6, as I was putting everything back together I discovered a 3 wire (red,green,and black) male connector underneath the power steering pump, attached to the block. Can any tell me where the female end can be found? Help! Thx


  • This connector is the camshaft position sensor. The other end of the connector comes out from under the upper intake plenum on the other side of the engine neaar the throttle body. They connect to each other on top of the front valvecover, between front 2 cylinders. There is a plastic connector holder on the upper plenum bolt to hold the connection in place.- Butchkaz
