Default New Member From NC w/96 Regal 3.8 Series II

Hey thanks for reading. I'm currently replacing some coolant elbows, upper and lower, and struggling with chronic leak problems plagued by the 3.8. Any pointers, etc. are appreciated. Also have a GMC 1993 SafariXT w/V6 PS - Not good a using the forum stuff...how to post, etc.

Welcome. Make sure you are using the new aluminum elbows, not the old style plastic ones. There are many threads in the forum on this topic, just search for "cooling elbows".
