The sensor is located on the back of the HPOP reservoir, driver's side.

Did you swap out sensors from old motor to new? One other thing to look at is the air intake seņor mounted in the air box, did you leave it unplugged?

Also the engine coolant temp sensor on those two engines is most likey different. That shouldn't effect the high idle, but may cause other issues.

i did swap temp sensors because the plugs were different, also changed complete engine wiring harness. i did plug in cold air sensor but so far still no fast idle when cold. it does start when cold but no hiss or fast idle. when i unplug what i think is cold oil sensor it will not even idle unless i step on pedal a ways.
