Yea, good question. Most of my driving, a good 95%, is city driving. I don't put many miles on my car though. So that'* a good question I'd like to hear the answer to

been a while since i responded, i picked up chiltons 28200 as suggested by willwren said. however i currently have only the gasket for the stat not the housing, asked napa bout it they showed one but not in stock, then went to carquest and the guy was baffled. So what is the name of the gasket, and or all the gaskets i need.

By the way chiltons shows two black o-ring type gaskets like i have one top and one bottom for my vin (K) engine, is this correct, do i need two of the black gaskets,? as well should i even monkey with the bleeder valve or not as stated previously?

thanks guys, (that issue of chiltons is way better than the one i looked at b4 thanks!)

You shouldn't spill a drop if you first syphon off about 1/2 gallon of coolant out of the rad.
