Amateur Hour installing Coolant Filter

Where did I read you could do this without draining the coolant? Don't answer that.

In a rush to get the hoses back on while coolant was freely running I disconnected a bracket and now have what I think is a loose wire seen here:



Does that plug into the little tit in the center of the round thing here?:



If not, where does it go. Should I run water through the engine compartment to get rid of the coolant residue on the engine?

Thanks,
From an idiot.

lol! hey we all have our moments so don't worry but yea that little plug in the middle of round thing is where the wire you are holding goes. I think it has something to do with vacuum but I've been wrong before.

As far as the coolant goes...I would, wash it with the engine running, its probably not a huge deal that its on there but I'm kind of a clean freak so it would bug me but just my opinion.

You can wash it. We always pressure wash the entire engine after we get done working on them. We let them sit with the hood open in the sun for a couple hours after washing before we start them to avoid any water causing issues with sensors.
