hi scott. i've got a picture. give me a minute to figure out how to upload it.

Ok great, that is the thermostat housing, best to replace that entire piece as they are made of a plastic that breaks down over time. I would get one from a dealer and not a aftermarket parts store, they are better quality.

Tell them you need the whole housing assembly, not just the thermostat cover.
