RE: 4ksq Coolant Overflow Resevoir fixes?
I just bought a new one from Rod a TPC for $39.50. After 6mths of screwing
with plastic weld, JB weld, RTV and silicon ect. I prolly actually spent
about $40 just in adhesives and a lot more in time and effort. I would (and
will in the future) just get a new one right away and save yourself the
headaches. Compared to the prices we pay for some parts (can you say $15
spark plugs?) this is chicken feed to avoid a problem that really woun't go
This of course is just my humble opinion. Don't let my experience get in the
way of any attempts to fix this problem with a method not yet tried,
godspeed to you!
Have a great day!

Nope, BTDT. They all crack again after a while. Get a new
contrary to your expectations they're not all that
Used ones are prone to cracking, too.
