Re: What is this? A part/tool ??? from Grand Marquis
Thanks people! I can relax a little here now. I started on the car at 6:15 am with a headlight and was stalled with this little part trying to figure out if it belonged anywhere, so I finished around 9 a.m. Regardless for 30 bucks for a filter, 20 gasket and 22 for 5 qts fluid all from dealer, the job went smooth. Sure getting hard to crawl under the car. Probably could of bought fitler/gasket somewhere else cheaper, but I did want good fluid and hadnt been able to find name brand locally. I was actually surpirsed, the v-belt was 32 bucks,
touch up paint for 7 bucks. Some of the parts are reasonable.
Filter looked somewhat dirty, magnet had the metalic slush (normal look to me but a little more than I expected). Car has 49 k on it, so I guess it was the first time done, and the main indicator or shocker to me was that extra part. Again thanks for the information. All I thought when I saw that part was DEALER OVERHAUL TIME- 3 K $$$
