Cool What is this (pic inside)?

I finally got my driver side exhaust manifold loose, but I think I broke something.




And I think it's related to the thing between the sparkplugs.




So guys, what did I break?

Coolant temp sensor for the gauge.

Thank you for the quick answer brother!

Is this part critical for when I first start my car with the headers, or can I finish my install and order a new sensor in the meantime?

Oh, and should I remove the spark plugs aswell?

Ok so It's not that critical at the moment. Will it be easy to install later with the headers on?

When you replace it, get a genuine ACDelco part.
