Well I think my cooling fans are crapping out on me. I noticed they've been squeeking when I shut the car off. Now they don't seem to be running at full speed,and when I sit in traffic my temp is rising. Anyone change theirs yet? I don't know that I want to put used ones in...you never know what your getting and thats a lot of labor if those crap out too. Any aftermarkets fit? Any thoughts on which would be better? Thanks for the input guys (gal) wink .

If I were to go aftermarket I would go Flex-a-lite. I've tried SPAL, but I didn't like them.

Wow! Much cheaper than what I thought! Autozone wants $29 for the left and $23 for the right dunno Not sure why that is, but still much, much cheaper than I thought. Is there a thread that shows how to remove them???
