You might disconnect it and see what happens to your engine coolant temperature guage on the dash. If it does not affect your dash temperature guage then maybe its a engine knock sensor.

Remember to reconnect the harness back up when your done.

Thanks for the feedback Tex. Did the sensor get that way because it was a bitch to get the harness off it?
