Can any of you fine folks tell me what exactly it is so I can replace it? Thanks so much.
that is either the temp sensor for the temp gauge or the ect(engine coolnat temp) for the pcm. one way to tell is if your temp gauge is not working then it is the temp gauge if the temp gauge is working it is the ect. also if you look at the connections closely you will see the sensors look alike but the connection has little nubs on them that prevent you from hooking them up on the wrong one........if it is the ect you want to replace it right away becasue it will make the truck run bad....and if it is the temp gauge sensor repalce it so you dont overheat the truck and not know about it
