Mike, I looked and there are 2 sensors in the area, which one is it if you know?  I pulled up the part number on Rockauto and it looks similar to the front larger one of the two. What would the other one be?

Larry,
Your ID plate should be on the passengers side of the engine just behind the A/C compressor.
