    About a month or so ago a guy looking to get just the T without the line set posted a picture here. You need to go back a couple pages of postings to find. The thing is under the plastic cover and left of the ECU.

    Yes, very pricy pump to have replaced and even if you have your own hoist, darn near worth the cost of having someone else do it.

    Water pump replaced, so the shop couldn't bleed it and what happens is at idle it never overheats but coolant level goes higher the fan kicks in it blows a little out of expansion tank then lowers again. Possible air pocket?

    Sounds like burping out the air. Coolant level will need to be watched for next couple days to weeks depending on your driving. If it doesn't settle down after a reasonable period of time, park nose down on the steepest hill you can find, with the engine cold open the expansion tank cap, let the car run to warm heater on and wait for the bubbles to stop before you put the cap back on, then park it level and when it's cooled down add fluid to cold mark.

    I'll give it a shot today, I need to sort this its it's driving me crazy lol low coolant light keeps coming on. Is that possible that aj airlock is forcing coolant up and out.
