My coolant level sensor doesn’t have a plug for wires on it…

My coolant level sensor...

My coolant level sensor doesn’t have a plug for wires on it like I’ve seen the pictures. I’m guessing the plug was there from when they changed the layout of the engine. I have a 2003 Chevy impala

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

There’s a “sensor” under the radiator cap

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Impala yourself? What have you tried so far?

The plug keeps popping out. And yes I’m trying to fix it myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

This is what it looks like but mine doesn’t have a plug: https://www.google.com/search?q=2003+chevy+impala+cooling+sensor&rlz=1CDGOYI_enUS660US660&hl=en-US&prmd=svin&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi38YLG_-HZAhUsx1kKHaLcC7YQ_AUIEygD&biw=667&bih=299#imgrc=VW-nFxspKVrBCM:

ok

I do not see a low coolant level sensor for the 2003. this means that someone may have replaced the radiator at some earlier date and used a radiator for another application. they just installed the sensor to block the outlet.

there is a clip that holds in the sensor. chances are it is broken or missing. you wll need to take the sensor to a dealer parts department or a parts store and see if the have the clip for you.
