Done deal. It was the drain plug and it was an exhaust manifold oxygen sensor. There was just barely enough room to loosen the drain plug, just not enough room to completely remove the plug. That worked out fine; made it easier to put it back in and prevented the coolant from splashing everywhere. Only downside is that I wasn't able to replace the seal washer. I can live with that.
