Eh, it all works now. Now I need to tackle the oil filter housing gasket. 8-dollar part...8 dollars...but accessing it sounds painful.

Thanks. Yeah, it has a slow leak. Nothing major or immediate, but best to get it done since the part is so cheap.


You'll need to move some plumbing around, the alternator, a belt, possibly the fan and fan shroud, I forgot what else, and according to some people, the housing won't let off the block without putting up a fight.

Be glad it sticks so well, haha. You'd have a lot more trouble if it didn't.

Touché. I hate these fixes where getting to the problem takes more time and effort than fixing the actual problem itself. Sigh...

Well depending what comes off might want to think about some other maintenance while in there, like CCV and Oil vanos pipe etc. How many miles are on the car?
