no.....i already have some coolant. and yes this is with a 180* stat
ok then go for it then steve
I would MUCH wrather install NAPA parts than the dimestore crap, Carquest is right up there with NAPA, but shops mark up the parts as it is common to do(especially at our ultra low 55$ an hour shop ratemost average 70)...I'd wrather install Carquest because then I have a block to walk to warranty anything if sumthing bad happens and because I can B**** at them in person about the failure (though I havent had any to date....)
hey Kennigton...NAPA still has the Delco parts line for WP'* fuel pumps, etc right? (used too at my old shop...Harry'* on Rand in palatine-NAPA autocare center)
ah the memories....
a 65$ fuel pump from autozone that has to be replaced 3 times is not a $$$ saver, trust us pro'*....

been working on cars for awhile no and no problems with Lifetime warrenty stuff from Autozone and yea somethings i would buy at AZ or whatever but if it carries the title "remanufacured' it has to meet certain QA standards
what im trying to say is most of use are on a budget when i comes to car repairs so not everybody can afford AC delco parts

I do a lot of work on cars. I agree with GAMEOVER... the AZ and Advance parts are good. Most are fine.
