It's the sender with the oval head.

And if you buy one... will need to splice a new Metripak plug to use it.
Years ago GM and others no longer make the old one.

Solder and shrink tube is best for ECM reading this accurately.

Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

I'm pretty sure the L4 uses the same sensor as the V6 and both the Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECM) and the gauge/light temp sensor are still available. The CTS for the ECM is in the thermostat housing and the gauge/light sensor is in the head. You shouldn't need to cut and splice harnesses. Autoparts stores often sell the CTS sensor as the one for the gauge/light and they tell you the new design requires a new style harness end. This isn't correct.

Temp Sender is for the gauge
Temp SENSOR is for the ECM
Temp Switch is for the fan
