  1. I discovered that my car's headlight level sensor in the left wheel well is missing some parts. It has the sensor and the vertical bar that connects it to the control arm. It seems, though that there is nothing on the control arm to attach it to and the lower plastic bit on the vertical bar is broken. It seems strange that the clip on the control arm would be completely missing. I don't even see how that could have happened. So, my questions are: Is there supposed to be a level sensor on just this side, or should the other side have one as well? Should actuating the sen
  2. I agree. That said, Loren posted above, the msrp. My local shop is charging about 20% more. Not that it is a big difference in this case, but out of principle I don't generally support businesses that sell above the MSRP. Where can I find the MSRP to confirm.
  3. Thanks all. I'll reach out to my local shop in the morning for a new cap. Is there a better place to buy from?
  4. When I'm driving it, I top it off regularly. It has a small coolant drop from the front that I've yet to repair. Waiting for some warmer days to pull off the front bumper. I don't see any 04 anywhere on the numbers. I'm guessing I have the old one.
  5. Thanks guys. I'm liking the cross threaded cap. That would explain the clues. I thought, initially, that it was a cracked tank as I'd read that those were an issue in older cars... but I think it would leak again when I refilled it. Would the incline of the car have anything to do with it? As I mentioned, the leak trail didn't start till I drove up my short but steep driveway. Also of note, today is the first "warm" day I've driven my car since winter started.
  6. I don't drive my car much in the winter months. Today was a warmer day (60º) so I took her for a drive, just about 25 miles round trip. There were no issues until I got to the top of my driveway. The last 10 feet or so left a trail of coolant. The coolant continued to pour out of the car for next few minutes. It was as if it was coming from the overflow in the trunk. I inspected for issues and couldn't find a culprit. There has been no coolant added since well before winter and I've driven it several times since then. I poured some hot water into the overflow area to flush out the coolant and
