Default Coolant Recovery Tank

What model years would fit my 95 SE? I'm guessing 94-99


I need to replace mine and I am going the cheap way through a junk yard.

92-99 are identical and will be under 20 bucks brand new from the dealer.

If you know a junkyard dude pretty well, you can get a reservoir for free. That'* how I got my windshield fluid reservoir. What happened to the old one?

Has a seam leak mid way up. If I keep the level just below "cold" it doesn't leak. I can pull one from local junkyard for about 5 bucks.

if you do get one from a 96 or newer, make sure that you clean it really well to get all the old coolant out, so it does not mix
