Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

This should be the correct part to repair what you're describing. This nipple is on the back of the timing cover behind the water pump area and a heater hose connects to it. If your original nipple was threaded then you'll need to use an extractor such as these to remove the remainder of the nipple and thread this one in.

if it's not threaded ?

If it's not threaded then it's a press in nipple and it would require replacing the timing cover but you could try threading the hole to accept a threaded nipple; if it was looked up by VIN and this was the part that you were given then it should be correct.
