Default Oopsy, I broke my plastic coolant fitting.

Well, it broke, I knew it was gonna happen. I was under the hood today and my wrench slipped, and SNAP it broke the nipple off of it. Luckily since I was able to screw it off with the way it broke. But now my problem is, what is the part number of the updated steel one? I am going to try and pick one up today. Thanks.

Autozone/Advance and Napa almost always stock the fitting. Just take your old one with you and match it right up.

BTW.. the new one will be metal. You won't need to replace it down the road.

Well, I went to Napa, Advance, Federated, and Auto Zone, I asked about it, and no one knows what I was talking about. I had it with me and they were all clueless about it. Anyone got a used metal one they can sell me?

All the stores listed have those in stock. And they're all metal. Even the dealer.
