i have a 1990 ford ranger 2.9 awd, it has a coolant leak, i know the location, its above the water pump and below the thermostat housing. its behind the a/c condensor and it has a three prong plug hooked into it, kinda looks like a c shape plug in, but the whole peice itself is a circle and there is coolant just pouring out of it even when its cold, does anyone know what this part is called so i can get a new one, also there is a bole that holds it in, size 7/32 its in the middle of the whole piece. looking at it its on the drivers side upper engine behind the a/c brackets

Is this go into the head?? or the T-state housing??

if going into the head it might be a factory block heater...so you can plug it in and pre heat the coolant on those arctic nights
