Which terminal type for underhood wiring?

I'm looking to rebuild the underhood wiring for the injectors and sensors of my 98 XJ but I have the most painful difficulty to find the terminals because I don't know from which type they are. I've searched intensively in the www.te.com catalogs but didn't find anything close, neither did I find information in the service manual.

This first female terminal is from the engine coolant temperature sensor connector. It has a square shape, there are small “ears” on the side (there is only one way to mount it in the connector) and the hole for the locking tab is at the bottom. Markings on it are “1 AMP”.


This second terminal is from the engine oil pressure switch connector, 18 gauge wire, is larger than the previous one with a rectangular shape and has two locking holes, at the top and at the bottom. Markings on the original ones are “D” (bottom), “15” (“21” on the second one) and “1C” (sides). On the one pictured: “C” (bottom), “32” and “FC1” (sides).


I didn't check yet the ones from the other sensors (MAP, TPS, etc.).
Does anyone know what type of terminals are these and where I can find them? I'm looking for unmounted terminals because I don't want to solder.

Gotcha! After several more hours searching I found them, I must say more by chance than by rational search.

The first terminal is a AMP/TYCO 0.70 type SSC (Sealed Sensor Connector) system, equivalent to their Econoseal III Series and Econoseal J-Series Mark II which might probably also be used without problem.
The second one is a Delphi/FCI Automotive Apex 2.8 mm.

Hope this feedback helps other owners.

Why not get a plug pigtail and splice it in ?

I'm rebuilding the underhood harness new because the insulation of the wires fall apart in some areas because of the heat and I prefer have one unique wire from one terminal up to the other, like original, instead of cutting and splicing all those wires.
Less cuts, less potential problems.
