Help! Unknown sensor and lose cables!

My car stalled on me one time real quick, popped the hood and found this one connector, I'm not sure what it's attached to, if anything but it's extremely loose feeling and covered in gunk. Also at the ground post this cable was barely in, I tapped it and it fell out. It's two wires? Please help.
Passenger rear of motor below timing cover kind of.

Don't know the orange, looks added. The other is a prev. poor repair on ground wire connection - that would likely cause the stall. Needs to be repaired for a GOOD connection.

Top pic is engine coolant temp sensor wiring.
Orange/black is factory ground wire direct to battery for various electrical systems.
Those wires have been repaired poorly and need to be solid as sailor mentions.
Stock 01 wiring at neg terminal in (fuzzy) pic below.

Thanks so much guys. So the head temp sensor wire is ok that it's wobbly because it's just the wires?
