A bit late with this one, but I had a my friends old buick back in the shop. (The one I replaced the power steering cooler on about a year ago). The new power steering cooler already looks like its about to rust through along with everything else on it. Had to replace the master cylinder which was the easiest thing we did that night. Then we replaced the end links which have been snapped for a year. I still had to cut the remains off with a saws-all. A half hour and three blades later we had them off and were putting the new ones on. Then the fuel filter which looked like it was about to rust through so I knew it was past due for a change. The screw on half was easy, its the snap in part I could not get out! I ended up having to rip out the plastic clip and pry the filter off.
Also, my car gave me a bit of a scare. Noticed a little wetness under the coolant elbow and the reservoir looked like it wasn't completely full... hopefully it was just a trick of the eyes, otherwise I'll be on elbow number 6.
