It's a vacuum switch , the 'AC' is for AC / Delco , and the 'carberator' (sic) is a throttle body.
The switches function is to regulate the flow of vacuum , and I am thinking it is the one that operates the trans kick down , though I may be wrong there.
You can get the whole upper manifold from a salvage yard for cheaper than replacing the switch...
Hollander part number 329-1488 , $15.00 .
The 3.1 was a common engine used in a whole bunch of GM cars so availability is there.
Call a salvage yard and ask for that number ; 329-1488 , and you'll get a better deal than just asking for a manifold because it will save them the 'trouble' of looking it up.

Don't know your zip , or I would include a link and pricing for your area on one.

Where are the bolts located to remove starter from 2006 chevy colbalt

I had a suspicion, so I checked. Sure enough, this is one of those fantastically engineered engines with one bolt visible, and the other INSIDE THE FRIGGIN' BELL HOUSING.

Have fun getting to that one. :p

Ticking noise coming from manifold

Ticking noise coming from the manifold? There are two types of manifold....1. Instake manifold and exhaust manifold. Please indentify and apply as needed.

Intake manifold
1. Double check the nuts and bolts around the intake manifold if you worked on it and had it serviced.
2. Spark plugs loose. Yes!! I've seen this before and it comes the rear of the manifold..very confusing.
3. Check your valves and have them adjusted. (This will require a trained and qulified mechanic).
4. Check your motor oil and power steering pump fluid.

Exhaust manifold
1. Check for loose nuts and bolts.
2. Check the O2 sensors connections...some models have 2-3. They are the sensors sticking into the pipes.
3. Your catalytic converter may have a defect. If possible, remove it and shake it to determine failure. (I've seen and experienced the so called honeycomb inside it breakign apart.)
4. Check the exhaust manifold heat shield if applicable.

Where is the pcv valve located on a 1999 ford explorer? Is there a picture?

PCV BasicsPCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation.
All car engines have a PCV valve and it is located on top of the motor's valve cover. There is a vacuum line attached to it. It pulls out of the valve cover and if you shake it, you should hear a marble knocking inside it. If you shake it and don't hear anything, it's bad. It costs less than 5 bucks to replace.

  • 4.0L is located in the valve cover near the brake booster

  • 5.0L is located behind the intake manifold (engine rear)
