if just the plastic broke it should be ok seal wise.

is it the actual temp sensor that goes to the dash? if so then it would be ok to drive it but just replacing the radiator idk if i would new parts might not work very well and you might over heat and not know it.

If you can..bend the prongs back and slide the connector back on it.

Meanwhile..there'* something I don't understand about it being $50 when you give us a link to one for $30
