I know, I was simply referring to Bill'* post about the "old stock" no longer being around. It wasn't a problem for me, but it may be something others who purchase the kit may want to watch out for.

Default knowing when to replace the UIM

I have an 1996 SE with 241,000 miles on it. I've read all the forums on the UIM issue. I haven't had a chance to really clean off the engine but I can see a coolant leak around the LIM. My question is that my UIM has a date stamp of February 8, 2002. Should I replace this one with the APN unit or how could I tell if this is the Dorman unit? I plan to do the regular maintenance for economy (filters, plugs, wires, posn1 o2 sensor, 180 thermo, clean TB, the Dex is gone, only running green glycol etc.) and didn't want to do too much at once if I didn't need to. The car runs great. I haven't drained the oil yet to see if there is coolant in it. Also, if I do replace the LIM, UIM, etc. how much time should I allow? Two full days?

Default new to posting

Sorry, I saw the most recent response was Aug of '07 and read somewhere the admin didn't want to add new but to search for existing stuff. Let me know what you need me to do?

Just start a new topic in the forum and copy and paste your original post into it. Name it something that'* real pertinent to your subject. We'll respond with bells on...

Hey bigjim, please start a new thread to address your concern. Typically, we don't like old threads resurected if they're more than a couple months old.

So, start a new thread and feel free to add a link to this thread if you have something to reference.

Thanks!
