Name this part.

On a 1984 300D, between the glowplugs for cylinders 3 and 4, what's the little electrical connection that plugs into something that goes in the block?

Damn it, is there an easy way to replace it? The wire is broken off the connector.

does your temp gauge work?

Just take the little black barrel thing part and try to reconnect the wire to the terminal.

I recently replaced mine, it just unscrews; you will lose about a quart of coolant.

That's okay, todays bionic super dooper coolants last 150k miles according to manufacturers anyways. So, just catch what spills out and throw it back in....

Would this apply to an 84 300SD as well? Pretty similar motors - both 617 I think.

If so, what's the sensor at the thermostat housing for?

Climate control. The other one in the head is for the glow plug relay.
