he might be talking about the coolant temp sensor, or maybe a radiator fan switch/relay. temp sensor keeps an eye on coolant temp and tells the system to kick on the fan if it's getting too hot. the data from the temp sensor is also used by the computer to calculate other engine parameters, so if it's running a little off and/or getting poor fuel mileage, this could be your culprit.
