    So I was changing my oil today, and while it was draining I went inside for a while. When I went back out, there was a wire with a single plastic whole on one end, and wire on the other end. I think I found the spot to connect the plug, which is right next to the oil filter, but I don't know where the wire goes. I've only driven the car about 5 miles since, and it's acting kind of weird. It ran fine for a while, but then it started idling really high. So what is this thing, and how do I hook it back up? Oh yeah, 92 ls obd0. thanks

    Its for your dummy oil light, aka oil pressure sender.

    And plug it on the senser [​IMG]

    Nope, for idle check you iacv valve on the intake manifold, the one on the back or the one under the TB, as It may need to be cleaned out.
