A few weeks back I posted about a rapid coolant drop with no visible leak. I watched and watched and it stayed the same, until... this week.
I love my SSE. I love my SSE. I love my SSE. Now that that'* out of the way...
But my fears are only half as bad, I think.
The UIM doesn't appear to me to be leaking, but I ain't great at this stuff. It has a manufacture date on the top of 12/20/00. I went back through my service records since this car (96 SSE) was under extended warranty in 2001 and at 59,500 miles the UIM was replaced (car now has 128k miles).
I know the part number of the gaskets for the LIM, but my question is "has someone posted a step-by-step for replacing the LIM?" I've found tons of diaries for the UIM but relatively few for the LIM. I have seen several photo diaries that make this look easy to do, but I am not very good with stuff like this. My fear is that there is something more to do than just order the gaskets and change the gaskets. I am afraid of missing something important and blowing the engine. I searched and found examples of people who had diaried this previously but are there any VERY specific instructions floating around the site? It looks relatively straightforward to change the gasket, but a gearhead I ain't. I just had the oil changed today just to be safe.
I saw this for the UIM http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...e=article&k=38
, but didn't see anything specific to the LIM.
Is it adviseable to do both the UIM and LIM at the same time, even if there is no visible sign of leaking from the UIM?
Thanks in advance for the good advice.
