Exclamation 3.8 Liter V-6 Coolant Elbows

Just in case anyone needs a little advice on changing upper/lower coolant elbows, be careful when removing the belt tensioner bracket due to pieces of the old coolant elbows coming apart at the o-rings inside the coolant passages. It's not a big deal if they do, just ensure that you take time to remove all debris from the passages and throughly clean these areas prior to the reinstallation process. Also, I had been told that these items were "dealer only" yet they may be purchased at most part stores under the Dorman brand for as little as $3.99 a pair. Just a little free advice...
