ALSO ... test your coolant with a legit coolant tester. If you need to change it DO NOT EVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE USE GM DEXCOOL If you don't buy Ford brand coolant (and you don't need to) I VERY STRONGLY recommend Zerex G-05 in the gold jug...not green/yellow of the old fashioned regardless of brand.

I do not believe in brand loyalty BUT I do know chemistry - BUT DON'T take my word for it - read the labels and test reviews yourself.

If you plan on keeping the car it's the best choice aside from Mercedes-Benz brand for MUCH more $.

They loosen after a couple weeks to try to leak when the rubber gives under heat, a single retighten takes care of that but the one joint under the coil is hard to get to to do that.

I use them and they work forever once retightened.
