Check and Test the coolant temperature sensor could be throwing you off-could be out of calibration

Ave opened the hood while engind warming a check engine light came on the darshboard and upon checking the sensor conections, found a disconnected wire on one, next to a horse pipe which comes from the lower part of the radiator to the upper part of the engine. After reconnecting it my car has started well without a misfire, check engine light gone, &moved smoothly. Could that have been the root of da entire problem?
