The one next to the thermostat is for the ECM.

My Haynes manual refers to the thermostat location as the "engine coolant temperature sensor" and the cyclinder head location "coolant temperature sensor". Theres only a coolant temperature sensor available online so I'm assuming they're the same piece in both locations?

No, not the same part. That should be blatantly obvious, just by looking at them.

Yeah you're right, the connector tops are just different. The one on the intake seems to be called coolant temperature sensor, and the one on the head a coolant temperature sender. Rockauto has both. Mystery solved thanks guys.
