The wiring diagram I have (which is 1998+ AUDM BE/BH. But you say 1998 DOHC, which makes me suspect you've got a late BG), says plug E8 is triangular, light grey.

Pins 1-2-3 clockwise from top left. Point of triangle down.
1 - BY
2 - WG
3 - BR

Crank sensor is Yellow (pin 1) and Orange.
Cam sensor is Black (pin 1) and White -- sure you're not confusing the two?

Dunno if any of that helps..
hi, as stated before its a TWO wire coolant sensor .: see here :

which is why I said 'dunno if this helps'.

Do you have a late-model BG?

either way - find yourself a wiring diagram, or try googling. Lots of images of coolant sensors.

As noted above, its most likely just a thermistor and doesn't care which way its wired.
