Hummm. Okay, The sensor that is on the Manifold is called a O2 sensor ( Oxygen Sensor ) If the wires was pulled from the sensor then you need to replace the sensor it's self. There should be a connector that you can unplug. Not to sure why you would need to know the replacement starting from the firewall out or left to right. Need more details on this part?

    Sorry! One thing I should have asked first. This sensor! Is it on the Exhaust manifold or the intake manifold. My answer to you question applies to the exhaust manifold sensor. If you can post your question with a little more details as to the location of this sensor. i.e. front or rear of the manifold.

1994 Chevy Silverado 1500. RPMs ramp up on start up and then fall back down to normal. Runs real rich, gassy exhaust, and poor fuel economy. Changed fuel filter, cap and rotor, air filter, plugs and wires...

I can almost guarantee the engine coolant temperature sensor is faulty or very dirty. You will find it on the top of the intake manifold, just beside the thermostat or upper rad hose housing. It is a 2 wire sensor, brass. It can be removed with a 3/4" or 19mm deep socket. It is the primary input to the engine computer before the O2 sensors take control (after engine warms up). Don't attempt to remove when hot or under pressure, refill and bleed after. You will notice a huge difference to fuel economy.

Where is the manifold absolute pressure sensor located on a 1999 chevy silverado 5.3 lt

MAP sensor sholud be at the back of the eng. on drivers side. (not 100% sure - may be on passenger side of manifold) It will have two bolts (one on top - one on bottom) holding it in place. It is rectangular in shape with one vacuum line attached and an electrical connector on the lower side of it with I think - 3 wires coming out of it. It is a replace only component and can not be serviced. If all connections are good and you get a faulty MAP sensor code it can only be replaced.

Random misfire

Intake manifold gasket or cracked intake manifold will cause a variety of problems including rough idle and random misfire. You can try spraying a little carb cleaner at various points around the intake manifold while the engine is idling and see if the RPMs pick up at any point. This would indicate that it is drawing air in someplace where it shouldn't. The slow acceleration is probably because the computer has set itself all out of wack and is trying to compensate, that's why you get codes like O2 sensor when it really isn't bad, it's just raw gas getting to it.

Need to know how to replace mass air flow for 1999 chevy silverado

Find fresh air hose from filter box to throttle body on intake manifold. The MAFS is inline in this hose in a like-sized aluminum plate which the hose clamps onto, 1 hose on either side of it, some models it is attached to the throttle body. The sensor itself is unimpressive-looking, but if you are looking to replace the stock-sized unit with a high-performance one, you will be replacing the aluminum in-line plate complete with the sensor module. There is a wiring harness connector, and four bolts, on GM usually 9/32nds or 10mm, a large dryer-hose like clamp or two, and that's it. Install it opposite of how you take it out.

2oo0 chevy blazer cel and code p0171 and p0174

Depending on the engine it will have between 4 and 2.

If you had a straight 4 or 6 engine then there would be only 2, one on the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe and then one just after the catalytic converter.

If you have a "V" engine (V8, V6) then you have an oxygen sensor on each exhaust manifold and will have a catalytic converter for each bank of the V. There will also be an oxygen sensor downstream of each converter as well. In this case there would be 4 oxygen sensors.
