Do you have a picture of the crack? I'm thinking that it'* superficial and might not be a concern if your car is still running good.

The other option would be to find one off a recycled vehicle or see if the one that is currently on it can be welded.

First cracked lim I've heard of. Please post the pictures. I'd like to see it. I'm thinking a junkyard is your best source of parts.

did you let her over heat or loose too much coolant that would cause a LIM to crack.

Sounds like someone may have overheated it...

Lets see a picture of that LIM.
