    Thanks for the Info. I just realized that your truck is a 2005. Most likely there are differences that exist between the various fluid cooling systems through the years. I need to get in the habit of looking at the member information box when replying. I hope I can get the years of service from my truck that yours has provided.

    No problem. Mine had sat for a couple years while I was overseas working, and I've had a couple Mustangs that I've used for a few years as daily drivers, so it's helped to stretch the life of the truck out. It still has 173k miles on it, but has held up decently so far besides the usual wear and tear items. Power steering rack is leaking and I have a new one at home, just haven't felt like doing it just yet. Overall no complaints besides gas mileage lol.
