While removing the upper and lower intake manifold

What is it, can I replace it and where do I get one?!?

I'd check repair guides for specific info; http://www.autozone.com/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0996b43f80381e3a - if those don't help try a Chiltons or Haynes guide.

Are you talking about the plastic wire Connector? Unless you ripped wires out, or smashed it all to bits I wouldn't worry to much about it if it connects well. You can also tape it with black electric tape.

Thanks guys! I have a Haynes book and it even has a picture with an arrow pointing at the part, but no explanation what it is. The part has a small hose attached to it that circulates water through a square tube beneath the upper intake.
