What engine you reckon it has? .. Well I'll just say .. if it's the V/6 .. Have it replaced... Not a DIY repair! Even IF you manage to get it off... You WILL crack the T-stat housing while installing it so save some money and let someone that's familiar with this one do it for you .. Just trying to help you out cause it's a pretty tough job!

I just took a guess it's the V/6 .. 4 banger shouldn't be a big deal but It's a pain on the V/6! .. Should have to list the engine size before the question will even post up anyway .. Got to know what we're working on!
