Default 1996 3.0 Cooling system part question (with pic)

I have a 1996 Ranger with the 3.0 and I am trying to find out what this part is called. It is what the Coolant Temperature Sensor screws into. Mine has a hole in it. It looks like a dealer part so I guess I'll have to miss work tomorrow to get it but I would like to know what it is called.

It wouldn't surprise me if the dealer doesn't carry it anymore. I recently tried to find the part that sits to the right of it (goes to heater core) and the dealer said they don't carry it anymore. I had to find something similar that worked at a Napa Auto parts.

Still looking for the receipt.

Just had same problem with coolant sensor housing you can get part from ford dealer for about $24.00 shipped.
They may want to ship to a local parts distributor in your area or just try your local ford dealership this is a dealer part and you will not find it at any parts store or supplier.
Good luck.

Thats the thesmostat sensor (thermostat bulb in spanish; "bulbo del termostato")

It send the temp signal to the dash gauge.

Hope it helps!

one is the coolant temperature sender and the other is coolant temperature senser
oreillys master pro 2-9371.
They list it as sensor/sender
my connectors are the same in my truck for both, so that leads me to believe that the same one can do both.
why 2 different temp sensor/sender dont know?
Im picking up a second one for my truck since i behaeded the one that attached to a connector hose outlet. and i lost the one that connects to the lower intake itself.
great fun


well on second look they do have same connectors but the one that attached to the lower intake body is the WT724 from oreillys.
the other on is the WT3058 and it attaches to the oulet conmnector attached to a hose
